Right Leg Loading and Weight transfer

Right Leg Loading and Weight transfer

Postby lagpressure » Wed Sep 12, 2012 1:47 pm



I shot this video today to demonstrate the role of the right leg in loading pressure and it's role in pushing weight from right foot toward the target through the strike of the shot.

The idea that weight should immediately be planted into the left leg at transition as some instruction indicates is not an optimal action. The notion that the swing is governed by a powering from the ground up that starts with planting the left foot then straightening the left leg is false.

In this clip hitting a persimmon driver off the ground, my left foot does not even contact the ground until PV5 or right near finish of the swing. This ball was absolutely nailed hard. The ground up pressure comes primarily from the right leg, ankle, foot and knee.

I shot this still wearing a street shoe and you can see the right foot almost slip out on me due the forces exerted there. Next time I will lace up a proper shoe with steel spikes and really get on it.

Been following the thread over there and glad you're weighing in (no pun intended). Always best to have real-world, practical evidence to counter armchair scientists, though I respect D and encouraged that he will soon post his swing to make his argument. The left knee staying flexed to P4 and then pulled into a straightening mode by an accelerating torso is good stuff.

Wow impressive! I bet that took a little practice to stay in balance with one leg!

Paul C,

I will be surprised if D posts his swing over there.

John,

As I said over there remarkable. It has made me realize I get over on the left too soon.

The purpose of the left leg is to aid in keeping us in balance, help us stabilize our lowpoint, and by utilizing Module 2, the left leg can aid in weight transfer with a cumulative push - pull effect.
