Do you have a low hangin’ bell on your backswing? If so, don’t be afraid of that bell! The two of you should be up close and personal in this situation. The lower that bell goes, the more chance of it swinging you instead of you swinging it. And when that bell gets low it’s not going to feel so great on your back.
Consider these things for your backswing:
*Aim the bell above your knees. Shoot for the triangle that your body creates.
*Arms against ribs. Forearms against inner thighs.
*There should be no space between your legs and your arms/bell on the backswing.
Keeping that bell close is necessary for a strong and safe swing using hip power and tension!
