Everyone wants a more powerful Swing and if
you don’t, then you should.
Because more power = more strength.
More power = more calories burned.
More power = more awesome you.
Now do you want a more powerful Swing?
Of course you do.
Everyone responds to different cues, so here
are some simple to implement basic tactics for
you to use TODAY for an immediate increase
in Swing power –
TACTIC #1: Hello Heels
No, not the UNC Tarheels, who won the regular

3. And get your weight in your heels
4. Snap your hips to Swing and keep your attention

So the ‘Jump’ method works well for them.
Simply imagine you’re performing a vertical jump
without leaving the ground. Instead of letting your
feet leave the floor, push them down hard.
The mechanics will work well transferring over to
(This is the method I personally use.)
So there you have it – 3 Sneaky Swing Power
Tactics that you can use immediately to increase
your Swing power.
(Or “Pow-ah” as Arnold would say.)
Ok, admittedly, they’re not really that “sneaky” at
all. You may even know 1 or 2 of them. That’s ok.
Give them all a shot and see which one works best
for you. (Especially if you haven’t played around
with your stance in awhile…)

to be sending you a cool Swing workout that will
also improve your Swing power…
