The POWERCHUTE® increases muscle resistance through drag. The resistance promotes a smooth takeaway, proper balance, core strength, swing sequencing, lag, and follow through resulting in explosive power and a faster swing speed. The company's patented technology behind the POWERCHUTE® Swing, Speed and Fitness System forces the athlete's body to employ their own fast-twitch (type II) muscle fibers which are more suited for explosive strength and power-based sports such as swinging a bat at an oncoming 90+ mph fastball, or the need to swing a golf club 95+ mph to drive a golf ball further down the fairway. The body's fast-twitch muscle fibers will be recruited or activated only when the force demands are greater than the body's slow-twitch (type I) muscle fibers are capable of providing as in the need and initiation of an explosive swing.


Plyometric movements are exercises in which muscles learn to exert maximum force quickly and explosively with the goal of increasing power (speed-strength). However, plyometrics alone can take several weeks if not months to sufficiently train the fast-twitch muscle fibers to produce the power and explosiveness needed to increase one's swing speed. The physical demands created by the POWERCHUTE®  Swing, Speed and Fitness System are consistent with plyometric exercises, require less time spent in training, and produce a quick lengthening of the muscles responsible for initiating the downswing, which is followed by a strong concentric or shortening of the same tissues. This will result in an increased quantity and quality of fast-twitch muscle fibers. Swinging the POWERCHUTE® for as little as 6 minutes per day will produce a faster, more accurate, and more powerful swing, as evidenced by Barry Larkin and Jason Zuback.


That is how the POWERCHUTE® works. "It shows your body how to recruit the fast-twitch resources that enable you to swing faster."
