The wind up is the movement you make to get ready before you swing to hit a ball/nail/object/target. A good wind up puts you in position, primed and ready to release your energy in the right place, at the right time, in the right direction and with the right amount of power – and then to recover so that you can wind up and swing again.
With a poor wind up you’ll be lucky to do any of those.
