Swinging the heavy brace causes an isometric contraction in the left arm muscle group without a change in muscle length. With repeat practice, the contraction and relaxation of the muscles result in increased flexibility. You will also develop strength to hit the ball farther.
Your left arm will be fully covered by the heavy brace. The restricted feeling around the arm and the continuous stimulation of the weight will help you to build up your muscle memory quickly via repeat swings. The effect is that you will soon achieve a straight left arm, for a better golf posture, without the brace.
SHOULDER TURN DRILL
Hold a club parallel to the ground along the target line. Separate your hands and grasp the club shaft with your rear hand slightly past the grip. Make a full backswing motion while keeping your spine at the angle demonstrated. Return to your setup posture, and repeat the movement.
L to L DRILL
Please practice this drill while focusing on your side bend to maintain your body angles. Side bend to the left in the backswing and to the right in the downswing. It may feel awkward striking golf balls with the brace at first, so we recommend you practice the drill with as many swings as you can manage at a slow tempo.
FOLLOW THROUGH DRILL
After you are accustomed to the “L to L DRILL”, you may try striking golf balls while making a full shoulder turn in the backswing and keeping the left arm straight (for a right-handed player) up to the follow-through position. You will get the feeling of a fully extended swing, as a result of the greater moment of inertia, for straighter and longer shots. Please note that you will be unable to achieve the finish position since this rigid brace prevents you from bending your left arm.
ADVANCED DRILL FOR A PROPER FINISH POSTURE
Please wear the brace on the right arm instead of the left arm and practice the swing motion from the impact to the finish position. Be sure to hold the finish position for a few seconds before repeating the drill. As you start to feel more comfortable with the drill, you will have correct weight transfer in your feet and develop a well balanced finish position for consistency in your strike.
GOLF PRACTISE DRILLS
Please watch our instructional video on YouTube and emulate the swing tempo and rhythm demonstrated.
HOW TO WEAR
Wear the product on the leading arm to support the elbow joint, with the heavier side facing the wrist.
• The WEIGHTED ELBOW BRACE should never be used as a medical device. • Ensure the heavier side with the label is ALWAYS pointing to the wrist. • Warm up before practice to prevent injury. • Swing slowly to reduce muscle stress in the shoulders and arms. • Do not wrap the straps too tightly. • If you experience any pain or discomfort, discontinue use immediately. • If you experience persistent pain or discomfort, consult a doctor. • Use at your own risk.
