Swinging a golf club or a bat with a weight during a warm-up or practice session is a ritual that has been around for years. However, research has proven that using a weighted training devices can be counterproductive, and even detrimental to swing mechanics. PowerChute’s patented technology activates the fast-twitch muscle fibers which are capable of much faster, and stronger contractions, and are therefore vital for explosive movements. It is an ideal swing trainer that teaches extension, wrist action, and proper swing plane that translates on the field and on the course like no other training tool in history!
The PowerChute increases resistance through drag. The resistance only occurs in the downswing where you are trying to gain speed which improves neurologic adaptation. Plyometric exercise is the best way to increase power and speed. The physical demands created by the PowerChute are consistent with other plyometric exercises. The PowerChute causes a quick lengthening of the muscles responsible for initiating the downswing which is followed by a strong concentric or shortening of the same tissues. The physical demand will result in an increased quantity and quality of fast-twitch muscle fibers. That is how the PowerChute works. “It shows your body how to recruit the fast-twitch resources that enable you to swing faster”.
