Improving Your Classic Golf Swing Mechanics and Fundamentals with the Overload/ Underload Training Technique
Baseball swing fundamentals aren’t usually the first choice that the golfer would consider to help them develop and improve their golf swing. But during long layoffs, the baseball swing fundamentals can prove to be an excellent self-coaching technique to keep the golfer’s fundamentals current, even in the offseason.
This Baseball Over-Under Technique prevents what some golfers call rust building up on their golf game. This Over/Under Technique can be performed almost anywhere, even at your desk.
I made what I call The Golf Baton to train with during the day to go through my Sync/Preset/Yaw Golf Swing at my desk as a relief exercise. Sitting for long periods of time isn’t healthy for your back or your proficiency. So for five minutes out of each hour, I work with my 22- inch Golf Baton that I made.
This provides me with relief exercises each hour, but, more importantly, reinforces my pre-shot golf routine in my subconscious mind. This keeps my pre-shot routine current, even during long layoffs like in the winter months. The key to train your subconscious mind is that the subconscious mind can’t distinguish between a virtual practice and actually playing golf, if the golfer can create the special effects that are needed. I proved this with an interview I had with Colonel George Robert Hall. This interview is listed in the toolbar of my website.
One of the key parts of the ASPEN Self-Coaching Technique is a training technique called Apperception. Apperception allows a golfer to take well-developed motor skills, usually developed at a young age, from the baseball swing and transition these directly into their golf swing. These same motor skills that can be used for the golf swing are firmly entrenched in the golfer’s permanent memory. The permanent mind is the third drawer in the golfer’s mind. Sports Psychologists refer to this part of the mind as the unconscious mind. I like to refer to this unconscious part of the mind as the Permanent mind.
I produced a YouTube Video that not only demonstrated the Sync/Preset Maneuver, but also demonstrated how baseball is a great crossover sport to use in your routine training sessions. I used a throw-down Home Plate to demonstrate the 12-Foot Bunt-Type Chip/Pitch shot that is one of the hardest shots in golf to make. If you can perform this shot with camera running and under the lights, you can perform this on the golf course.
Good aspect about the Bunt-Type Chip/Pitch Shot is that anywhere you practice your putting you can practice this Bunt-Type Chip/Pitch Shot. You just need a backstop, like the one I use to catch those wayward golf shots. Also the same type mechanics and techniques used in the Bunt-Type Chip/Pitch shot are the very same mechanics and techniques used in the full-type golf shot.
