44 kg One Arm Swings 1x8/8,45 lb CB Arm Cast, hacks, weighted pushups, side laterals

The groove is good. Very good. The best it's ever been, actually. I have a launching pad, a jumping off spot, a bottom to push off of and it makes so much difference. Watching the video I'm really happy with the height of the swing and the power all the way through. It's a major change from just a few months ago and really mastering this " hit the hole" position is making all the difference. Serious glute involvement too and my glutes were pumped today just as they should be, as the main driver in this movement

But my legs are working too, in sequence, and everything is stronger again. Speed swing day is crucial though, for keeping speed and strength endurance high, as well as pure muscle  memory.
Being able to hit the hole,in a swing or a squat or a jump is crucial for getting the total stretch reflex needed for total muscle activation. I never had one in my power squat for obvious reasons but I saw others do it all the time and always new it was the key to power. It looked so much easier than the 'search and destroy' mission I always went on; searching for some place to push off from.

So the top end power and more comfort in the backswing is paying off now.Very very nice feeling
