2-minute Pilates Exercises to Improve Weight Shift
Individual Strength Exercises • 2m 7s
The purpose of the backswing is to create a coil of elastic energy to release on your downswing. As you shift your weight on the downswing, you release that coiled up energy so that your arms can fling the club towards the ball and target with clubhead speed.
Your adductors, hips, legs and feet initiate your downswing and weight shift, so you need to shift your weight from side to side quickly and efficiently.
These Pilates exercises condition your muscles used to create a powerful weight shift.
