Golf Pain Away

This is a quick post about a really great product that my wife and I use regularly.  As we age, there just seems to be a few more aches and pains that come with everyday life, and more if you are working out or playing sports...especially golf!

Arlen Bento, Jr. and I did a short promo piece for Golf Pain Away because we love the product and know it can help just about everyone. It's made from all natural oils (from Australia) and it really does relieve your pain!

It is great as a stocking stuffer for the Holidays.

The "Bent Toe Drill" with Arlen Bento

Here is a simple and fun drill to help you "Feel" your golf swing moving from a short takeaway to a strong follow through. This unique drill was designed by Arlen Bento, Jr. many years ago and he has used it to help new golfers as well as those of us who have been playing golf for most of our lives.

The drill is easy to do, but takes some concentration and may need a few "tries" to get the correct feel. This will help with balance, body movement, club position at impact and getting to your left side (for right handed golfers...lefties, switch it around). From a golf club to using the GolfGym PowerSwing Trainer (for resistance) this drill can really help to build a strong base for your complete swing and a great ball striking platform.

Instead of me trying to explain it more... just go ahead and watch the video, have fun and "feel" the results. By the way, this was my first time doing the exercise/drill and it was fun.  I am headed to the range this afternoon and will shoot some video of me performing the drill while hitting balls. Wish me luck!

This drill is easy to do at home or on the range.  Give it a try and you will see what I mean about being a little bit of a challenge with a good feeling outcome.

Thanks for watching!

"Begin With The Follow Through" by Arlen Bento Jr.

Do you feel there are certain things in life that are just "meant to be"?  I guess when you think about it...everything in life is just meant to be, but you know what I mean.

My most recent "meant to be" moment was serendipitous meeting with a very unique man named Arlen Bento, Jr.  Arlen has been involved in golf in some way or another for many many years, either as the Head Golf Professional at PGA Village, Pine School high school golf team coach, club fitter, golf sales and much more. (see below for full resume)  Over those years he has developed some very unique and very effective golf drills and teaching techniques that he has passed along to his golf students.

It has always been a challenge demonstrating golf fitness techniques and exercises to golfers, hoping they will employ them consistently to reap the benefits. However, it is difficult for most golfers to see the benefit of a movement pattern or exercise if it isn't tied directly to their swing. With Arlen, I think we can bridge that gap.

The following is the first of many tips and drills that we created together. With Arlen's years of experience and using "the best golf training products on the planet" (an unbiased opinion...Ok, I'm biased) we should be able to bring you just what you need to get better at this game which, more importantly, will help you enjoy the game more.

So let's "Begin With The Follow Through" shall we?

Thanks for watching.
