Left Arm vs Right Arm, Speed Training

Recommended Posts

In the last couple weeks, I've been trying to do some speed training where you swing with a light weighted club, then a heavy weighted club and then a normal club.

 

What I have found especially with the light weighted club (gripped shaft, no head) is that I can swing it much quicker with just my right arm (120-130 mph) than my left arm (70-80 mph) or even both arms (80-90).

 

I find it very strange the amount of speed loss I get when introducing the other side of my body.

 

Can you someone give me a drill or swing thought to better sync up both sides?

I swing my right arm faster too. But I been training with my left arm and it has gotten faster but not as fast as my right arm.
You also have to remember anatomy wise the "left arm swing" is much different feeling, just like a backhand in tennis is different feeling than forehand feeling. where the 'swish" happens is going to different thru the ball.
Its easily confused
So better to choose one or the other. since my right arm is dominant that is my preference when I set up to an iron shot.

Being a right arm swinger, is there a drill you do that prevents your left side from slowing down your right? I just find it interesting the difference in speed.

as its arms only, the right has a huge advantage as it bends, the left doesnt

All that really matters is your body speed, which allows the arms to sling naturally through

your left side isnt' slowing down your right, the body is just stronger in one position than the other. lay on your back with your arms out in a "T" and see how much weight you can lift off the ground with your right arm. Now lay on your stomach in the same way and see how much you can lift with your left. It will be significantly different. You are dealing with abduction vs adduction and the muscles/levers doing the adduction are just stronger. It's the same with everyone. The speeds will never be the same and that's ok. You don't hit a golf ball with one arm anyway, so who cares!

Off topic, kind of, how does one increase body speed?

Sequencing drills can help a great deal. Any one with a k-vest system SHOULD be very able to help. Or there is always youtube.
