Parker Condit
Coach & Golf Performance Specialist

Golf Fitness Specialist and Running Performance Coach Growing up in rural New Jersey, Parker’s life was always encompassed by sport. It started with gymnastics at an early age and continued through college playing soccer and lacrosse. Following college, Parker found there was a void in his life that the professional world was not fulfilling. It was the combination of being out of the competitive sports world and not doing work he believed in, which lead to him move to Colorado and become a personal trainer. Parker is the former Program Director and Performance Coach of The Aspen Clinic in Colorado. While there, he was the strength and conditioning coach for the Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Olympic Development Team in addition to working extensively one-on-one with sport specific athletes with an emphasis on golf, running, and high school athletes. In Parker’s mind, fitness is nothing more than the client’s ability to do what they want without pain and without restrictions. Since the client’s goals will define their “fitness”, Parker can work with a breadth of individuals ranging from the athlete who wants to run a sub 5 minute mile to the weekend warrior who wants to play a round of 18 without pain. To help clients achieve such a wide variety of goals, Parker is constantly striving to learn more and challenge his current assumptions. “The culture at PFS is all about customer first, personal and professional growth, and community which is why I’m so excited to be a part of this team!

These are a few moves I’ve been using to train clients in loading and propulsion. You’re always on a continuum of loading/propulsion so try to take these drills at a 30,000 ft view of the overall concept and not necessarily as a definitive benchmark of “this video is loading” and “this video is propulsion”. These are simply examples on a spectrum. •
•
•
First video is a dynamic movement with the right leg moving from loading towards  propulsion with the foot on the box and moving back towards loading as I lower back down towards the starting position. The second and third videos show isometrics that can be used to get people to feel certain things so they have a  reference when moving on to a dynamic movement, like in the first video. •
•
In the loading video, with my Right leg in front, below is what I’m looking for:
- R hamstring
- R glute (lower 1/3)
- R adductor - R abs
- Weight in R heel
- R hip behind and higher than left hip
- L serratus
In the propulsion video with my Left leg on the box, below is what I’m looking for:
- R hip extension
- R glute max
- R Glute med - R serratus - Up on the toes of the R foot •

Sagittal Plane Control for 🏌️‍♂️🏌️‍♀️(continued). Your address is limited by your sagittal plane competency, so if your range is limited or motor control is limited, there will be downstream effects. Own this position and plane before tackling rotational changes in your swing. •
•
My last video post was a good starting position for sagittal plane control because in a supine position the demands of gravity are limited and thus easier to control. We’re taking that position and flipping it over and now have to manage this shape with gravity challenging us. •
•
You still want to feel your heels pressing into the wall, that’s your “boney” landmark. Muscles working will be the same: hamstrings and abs. To achieve this, once your knees are elevated try to pull you heels up the wall and try to pull the bottom of your butt towards your heels. Visually you want a smooth curvature of the spine throughout the full inhalation and exhalation. You can tell a lot about a persons mechanics if they lose that position during either the inhale or the exhale. •
•
5 breaths. The more you can own your breath in this position, the more you will own your sagittal plane 👌 •

Golfers Sagittal Plane Control🙌
•
•
For any golfers out there, your address is dictated by your sagittal plane control. If you’re missing hip extension (sagittal plane measure) then it’s going to be awfully challenging to get a good turn into your hips on the backswing or follow through. •
•
You can spend all day working on hip mobility or turning drills, but if your pelvis is oriented forward and/or you’re missing hip extension, then  you’re putting the cart ahead of the horse. Pelvis position is going to dictate hip ROM. This drill helps improve hip extension and utilizes the hamstrings to pull the pelvis into a better starting position 👌
•
•
Start with the feet against the wall with the hips and knees bent at roughly 90 degrees. Feel your heels press into the wall then imagine dragging your heels down the wall to feel hamstrings. Peel the lower 1/3 of the glute off the ground up towards the heels to feel even more hamstrings and possible some lower glute working. Draw one leg in towards your chest. Inhale in through the nose, filling up the chest  while the lower ribs stay down (hands on ribs for feedback). Slow, open mouth exhale. On the exhale peel the bottom of the butt 1” closer to the heel. Repeat for 5 breaths on each side. Lower back muscles should not be working in this position. If you feel the low back muscles working, it’s time to come down and reset. Perhaps stay in a static position instead of progressing up on the exhales. If you do this right, your working side hamstring should be on fire and the leg might be shaking by the end of 5 breaths 👍
