Unlike weighted clubs and training aids, the Powerchute Speed Trainer uses air resistance to encourage proper sequencing, eliminate casting, and increase lag. By sequencing your muscle movements in the correct order, you will develop a more efficient and reliable swing, and with the Powerchute, you can actually feel where your sequencing needs improvement.
The Powerchute is designed to fit any standard driver or fairway wood, so you don't need any special clubs in order to use it. Just attach the Powerchute to your driver and start swinging! As you practice with it, you will instinctively engage the proper muscle groups in the right order, naturally eliminating casting. This will also result in increased lag; as lag increases, so does the speed at which the club head travels through the hitting zone, thus giving you more power and better distance.
The Powerchute can be used by golfers of any skill or strength level. Because it works with air resistance, the amount of resistance you feel is determined only by how fast or slow you swing the club; the faster you swing, the more resistance you'll feel.

ADVANTAGES OF THE POWERCHUTE®
The club is not weighted. The Powerchute® increases resistance through drag, not weight which alters the specificity in adaptation.
The resistance only occurs in the downswing where you are trying to gain speed. There is no change in the backswing which increases the specificity and improves neurologic adaptation.
The neurological demands created by the Powerchute® is consistent with other plyometric exercises. Plyometric exercise is the best way to increase power and speed. The Powerchute® causes a quick lengthening of the muscles responsible for initiating the downswing which is followed by a strong concentric or shortening of the same tissues. Swinging a weighted club is an isotonic exercise which has no neurologic similarity to demand created by the Powerchute®.
Most plyometric exercises are very stressful on the body; however the Powerchute® is simple and subtle enough that anyone able to swing a golf club can swing a Powerchute®.
The neurologic adaptation to this specific (golf swing) demand will result in an increase quantity and quality (fast twitch/ speed) fibers asked to respond. That is how the Powerchute™ works. "It shows your body how to recruit the dormant resources that would otherwise enable you to swing faster."
