Rotational Training from LabX.tv featuring Pro Golfer Adam Hadwin
Here are some of the exercises we have been playing around with this off season. We are using the science that has been developed by the TPI Advisory Board members and tweaking them to match the needs of our athlete. Some people have asked me how much muscle do you need to play golf? I always say that you need to be strong enough to handle the loads created while swinging the club. In Adam’s case he was producing enormous amounts of speed and needed some more muscle mass to handle the loads he was creating. Once we added the muscle in the correct areas (Scapular Stabilizers, Glutes, Legs) we found that he didn’t have to work as hard to create the same amount of power. The potential for injury should also decrease. Enjoy the video and comment. The more debate we get for these topics the more we can Xperiment!
LabXtv Technician Jason Glass shares with you some of the Rotational Power exercises he uses with Pro Golfer Adam Hadwin. If you want to “Load and Xplode” you first have to “Earn the Right to Rotate”!

Rotational Power Lacrosse
This video is near and dear to my heart. Lacrosse has always been one of my favourite sports and I played both box and field lacrosse growing up. If I had put the same number of hours I spent throwing a ball against a wall into piano I would be a world class concert pianist. (I said pardon!) My high school coach and mentor Coach (Flash) Flemming had us throwing both left and right handed from day one. We now know that the most powerful rotary athletes in the world throw or swing both ways (I know, you try writing that sentence a different way!). You can only accelerate as fast as you can decelerate. I love how this video shows how Paul Rabil transfers linear momentum into rotational momentum. He gets as much speed moving toward the target while coiling his upper body in the opposite direction. Once he plants his lead leg it rapidly decelerates the left hip causing the right side to snap around it like a pitcher. His stretched Anterior Right Sling (See PowerSlings) can now release the saved elastic energy from the coiling phase and Boom Goes the Dynamite! On a side note: I had the same hair when I played! (Don’t ask for a picture because your not getting one!) Coach Glass
