Member Question:

Hi Jaacob,

So my questions are:

What upper body lifts translate well to clubhead speed?

What lower body lifts translate well to clubhead speed?

Which exercise has the most correlation to clubhead speed?

Which strength exercise improves clubhead speed the fastest?

Thanks very much!

Jaacob’s Answer:

– What upper body lifts translate well to clubhead speed?

My favorite ones for upper body are probably cable wood chops (downswing), decline cable flyes or decline bench dumbbell flyes (downswing), one-arm cross body lat pull downs (downswing), decline cable triceps extensions (downswing), and incline cable chest flyes (through swing).

Secondary ones would be hammer curls (back swing and follow through), dumbbell or cable side lat raises (back swing and follow through), and then forearm exercises like curls, reverse curls, hammer curls, reverse hammer curls, and things for pronation and supination as well.

– What lower body lifts translate…
