"Today we're going to talk about creating early connection with one hand. What's early connection? Connection is when your body starts to turn and your barrel starts to come around it, is it creating a 90-degree angle with your spine? Meaning, at this point, I'm at 90 degrees. If I start to make my turn and I do this, where am I? Am I here, here, here? Where is my barrel? Lagging. So what I want to do when I'm doing this drill, I want to make sure when I get here, my elbow comes in, as I make my turn, I get to this point like this. So I'm going to create that 90 early by turning the elbow in. Work through. As you notice, I'm not swinging all the way through like this. I want to take my swing, get here and come all the way through like that."
