Generating more power in your golf swing can make huge improvements to your game as you don’t need to take as many shots to cover the distance of each hole. However the most important part is to make sure you are getting power from the right part of the body. It’s all very well swinging the arms faster but this can lead to all kinds of timing issues. You want to use the biggest muscles you have, which are in the lower body, to help control the swing whilst having that extra power.
Standing on your right foot, shift your body weight and try to jump as far as you can to your left whilst landing on your left foot. Repeat back and forth to improve your body weight shift on your downswing.
To develop more explosive power in your legs start with your feet shoulder width apart, sit your hips back as if sitting on a chair and then explosively jump up as high as you can. Use your arms as extra momentum and make sure in the landing you have soft ankles with knees over feet.
As with the squat jump this develops explosive power in your legs but gives you a height to aim for with the step. Start on the lower step, feet shoulder width apart and sit back as if doing a squat. Explosively jump onto the higher step, again landing softly in the ankles and knees over feet.
90 degree jump
This focuses on rotational power that we need to start the downswing from our top position. Feet shoulder width apart, sitting the hips back, explosively jump up and rotate 90 degrees to the left, landing with ankles and knees over the feet again. Repeat back the other way and using your arms for momentum.
