New Somax Exercise Machine Helps Golfers Use Their Hip Muscles to Power Golf Swing Instead of Their Arms

"By increasing the strength and speed of hip rotation in golfers, the Power Hip Trainer reduces casting and increases lag during the downswing."

Somax Performance Institute (web:, the world leader in analyzing, measuring and improving golf swing mechanics, has recently found that videos of golfers taken before and after they start using the Somax Power Hip Trainer show that they reduce casting and increase the lag of their clubs during their downswing.

Conventional instruction tries to reduce casting and increase lag by holding the club back with the hands and wrists. The new videos, on the other hand, show that casting is the result of slow hip rotation.

By providing resistance to hip rotation with its special, high tensile strength spring, the Somax Power Hip Trainer enables golfers to effortlessly increase their hip speed and thereby reduce casting and increase lag.

"Casting is really the result of golfers trying to make up for slow hip rotation by increasing the effort of the hands and arms" says Bob Prichard, Director of Somax Performance Institute. "Since not much power is generated with slow hip rotation, golfers compensate by over-contracting the muscles of the forearms, which leads to casting. The Somax Power Hip Trainer provides the resistance needed to increase the strength and speed of hip rotation during the golf swing. The result is that golfers can relax their forearm, which decreases casting, and increases lag—and which adds more distance with all their clubs. Golfers who have trained on the Power Hip Trainer for a month or more report adding 30-50 yards off the tee and are 1-2 clubs longer in their irons."

The Somax Power Hip Trainer is only $275 plus shipping, with a 30-day money-back guarantee and is available at
