By this point, you might be a little sore, particularly if you are not used to this type of training. Although we’ll be taking tomorrow off to rest and recover, generally speaking, take rest and recovery time at any point you need it. It’s an important part of training. If you are feeling tired and fatigued, your performance is dragging, you are agitated or moody, etc…take a day or more off to come back fresh.

We want to keep you healthy and this training to be fun!

That being said, if you’re ready for Day 3 of our week-long golf fitness training program, we’re going to do two things we’ve already done from yesterday’s workout. But this time, we’ll add in a new block of training, the Dynamic Downswing Overspeed exercises using our resistance bands.

Day 1 – Dynamic Swing Strength
Day 2 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Swing Speed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 3 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Downswing Overspeed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 4 – Rest & Recover
Day 5 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Swing Strength, Dynamic Swing Speed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 6 – Dynamic Downswing Overspeed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 7 – Rest & Recover

For these Dynamic Downswing Overspeed exercises, we’ll basically be using the resistance bands to rubber band and sling shot your downswing.

    Hi Jim, personally I have ones from Bodylastics. They have numbered/colored levels of resistance. They have clips for easy attachment to a doorstop, velcro strap, handle, etc. And they pack up and store well in a suitcase (for travel), golf bag, etc. I’m sure there are other good bands out there, but these work well and are the ones I’ve had for years and years.

Mitsubishi Diamana WB: Club Junkie takes a technology deep dive

Published

on

Earlier this week, Mitsubishi announced the return of its iconic Whiteboard profile with the new Diamana WB shaft.

In our launch story, we offered a rundown of the key technology in the new WB — 80-ton Dialead pitch fiber, Aerospace-grade MR70 carbon fiber, Consistent Feel Design, and the Xlink Tech Resin System. To go deeper, however, we enlisted our Resident Club Junkie and bona fide shaft nut, Brian Knudson, to track down someone from Mitsubishi at the PGA Show. Fortunately, Mitsubishi’s Director of Global Aftermarket Sales, Jonathan Alongi, was on hand to answer all of BK’s questions.

Check out their discussion about the new WB, as well as the 20th anniversary of the original design, in the video above — time stamps of key points below, including a definitive answer as to how the surfboard graphic ended up on the original Whiteboard in 2004!

  • :40 – Mitsubishi Japan expands to the U.S. in 2004
  • :50 – “The shaft that set the standard”
  • 1:12 – “The ‘board is back”
  • 1:45 – WB or Whiteboard? Or both?
  • 1:55 – The first iteration of the sixth generation of Diamana
  • 2:10 – Incorporating key technology from a 20-year journey
  • 3:10 – Modifying the tip section for more ball speed
  • 3:50 – Delivering ball speed in a low-launch, low-spin shaft
  • 4:20 – Drilling down on the shaft profile compared to the original Whiteboard
  • 5:00 – The most impressive element of the new WB
  • 5:30 – Butt, mid, tip specifications
  • 6:00 – WB’s iconic graphics and the Diamana legacy — flowers, surfboard, numbering system
  • 8:15 – An abundance of available weights and flexes
  • 8:55 – More players going lightweight

Check out more photos and see what GolfWRXers are saying about Mitsubishi WB in the forums.
