I have little to add at the moment, but rest assured that if you have any doubts about the efficacy or value of this video – it will change your golf swing and your view of the game.
So, I’m really pumped about getting this out to you all. I threw together a little piece of different clips to give you an impression of how the video will look and sound.
The reason for this is that the Power Wheel is not geared to a specific sport or motion.
It is simply my MCS interpretation of how the body moves, how I’ve trained and moved in sports throughout my life and how I managed to become a pretty good athlete with good technical proficiency through practice and more practice.
The MCS 3.0 Video in Hd download is now available, friends. It’s been a hectic month and I’m retiring for a long-anticipated night of rest with nothing to think about for the next day.
Well, yesterday was…. interesting. DJ hit the wall. I was up ’til 7:30 in the morning and was planning on continuing the battle sometime later in the day. But I got about 3 hours’ sleep before having to wake up again for the family event…
And from there, the mental implosion. I’ve been burning the candle for the past few weeks since making the decision to take my “real job” ending and make a “real job” out of the blog, and I pushed a little too hard this weekend. Yesterday, I just had nothing left.
OK, I lied when I said I wouldn’t post anymore until the video is finished. What I’m doing right now (I started last night) is putting some additional material into the video. I had started out with the basic structure of the eBook, but things kept coming to me in the process.
In addition to the 7 Exercises, I’m adding a new section (call it a drill) that should have people become more familiar with the double-pendulum action of the chain sequence regarding the mechanically-correct golf swing.
This is a strange feeling of deja-vu. I could have sworn I was in this same position a week ago with the eBook!
I can tell already that the video will not be ready for tomorrow at any time, unfortunately. I had to take a couple days’ mental break after getting the eBook out and wasn’t able to make up the time working on the video.
Looks like it’s going to be a busy spring, folks. In addition to the MCS 3.0 Video in Hd due for release next week (**more on that at the bottom), I have plans to move forward with other aspects of the golf swing.
So, as it stands, everyone who is purchasing or will later purchase the MCS 3.0 eBook are in great shape, as I’ve decided that there will be no further editions of the MCS Full Swing, either in Video or eBook form, simply because the 3.0 eBook, after I have revised it, will be the last word I have to say on the golf swing.
I’ll make this short and sweet, won’t be around much between now and Monday, which is the promised launch date for the MCS 3.0 eBook. Thanks to everyone who ordered the video/eBook in advance, expect the eBook download link sometime Christmas Eve!
As to content, I’ve been spending more time than anything else on just figuring out how to convey the fundamental movements of the MCS motion, especially the compound pivot.
There’s an old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. The same must be true of video, which is a series of pictures taken at high speed.
You might be seeing the close-up clip in this posting quite a bit in the upcoming video, as I feel it truly is worth a thousand words. I can use it to illustrate so many points from pivoting to hand action.
Shooting has completed and the editing process has begun! I can confidently predict a video and eBook launch by Christmas Eve (December 24th)!!
All that remains is to shoot the tutorial, so while the wind and wet keep us indoors for a week, I can tinker and play around with how I’m going to edit the final video with regards to video quality vs slo-mo aspects.
I managed to get my clips recorded in all but the best light possible (there is some shadow in the up-the-line shots, but with a background of sky and the sun behind me due to its seasonal position, it’s the best I could do), and all that remains now is the tutorial portion to shoot.
I’ve been doing some shooting, and I am nearly completely finished that. The tutorial portion, I haven’t yet begun, but it’s the swings and clips I really had to get before the end of the season hits.
Out of the Fundamentals Trifecta I’ve identified in the MCS swing process, the first and second are obviously important.
I got an email yesterday from an MCS 2.0 student (who claims to me that he’s watched my video over 200 times, which is a feat in itself, I have to say), I’ll just call him by his initials C.B., and he had some great things to say about his progress.
I wanted to hook up with him for some personal lessons after he’d contacted me, but I was unable to land a free-lance location to give lessons, which was disappointing. However, C.B. seems to be doing some fine by himself!
I have said in the past that I paid more attention to what Mike Austin had done regarding his theory on the golf swing when he was actually still swinging the club than on anything he had come up with after his stroke, when he could no longer swing but continued to think about mechanics.
Well, I have to admit that, despite my resistance in promoting or using the counter-rotation theory that MA came up with in the ’90′s, it works. In fact, it works completely in how the body and joints function in the back swing when in the correct athletic pre-swing address position.
I have found a new Fundamentals Trifecta adjustment that I will be introducing in the MCS HD video later this spring (which, again, everyone with MCS 2.0 will be able to get as a free upgrade if they want it) – making the address stance more like Mike Austin’s than I have it currently.
I have been looking for ways to tighten my swing for playing purposes rather than just swing away for speed and distance, and I found it while looking at a down-the-line shot of MA.
I mentioned in January that I was going to re-shoot the MCS video in HD when the spring arrived, and this is still the plan. As promised, everyone who has already purchased the MCS 2.0 download this winter will get the MCS HD Video download as a bonus.
When I am ready to release the HD Video, everyone with the MCS 2.0 will receive a news update from E-Junkie, at the email address you used to make your 2.0 Download Purchase, requesting you to send an email request to me for the download code, again from the same purchase email, as proof of your original purchase. It’ll be as simple as that.
