Q&A with Jaacob Bowden


I bought a weight iron at Wal-Mart and ended up pulling a muscle in my rib cage area so I stop using it.

Jaacob’s Reply:

Yes, that’s the danger of weighted clubs – injury.  Personally, I think they are fine for warming up, but for speed training I have mixed feelings.  

If you do any kind of extensive slow swing training with them, you might be building strength in your swing…but it could be slow-twitch strength.  If you are going to use them for increasing your swing speed, swing them fast and make sure you are warmed up thoroughly to avoid getting hurt.
