    Nicklas, I just want to correct a misleading sentence : “moving the left knee outside the target line”.You probably understood I meant, outside the line of the heels of your feet, parallel to the target line.

    Hi!
    I can only tell you what worked for me, another apprentice like you, and try and help you :
    Whenever I got carried away by my arms, not grounding my lower body and achieving proper coordination,and taking advice from one of our instructors, I slightly lifted up my left heel during take away, forcing me to stomp and transfer weight on the way back, after a greater rotation.Lately I have been concentrating on the sequence of the swing,actually not knowing what was initiating it.I start to push the left knee slightly outside the target line, to the right,then rotate the hips, the shoulders, and last fire with the arms as extended as possible.
    You can exercise at home, squatting up and down,and jumping sideways from a foot to the other, and as Christo showed in one of his videos, rehearse the swing, or parts of it (impact position for example) without a club, maybe using a mirror.For rotation, same simple exercises can be done with arms extended, going left and right, progressively bending to the actual swing position.You can eventually use a kettle dumb-bell,going smoothly not to strain your muscles or tendons and stretch. Hope this can be of any help.
