Golf Strength Training Is The Missing Link To A Great Game


Golf strength training is the quickest way to add yards to your drives and eliminate back pain forever. The golf swing puts a tremendous amount of stress on the body, especially the lower back. Implementing a golf strength training program will prevent and/or reduce boughts of low back pain and injury.

When it comes to driving distance in golf, it takes an optimum level of strength, especially in the "core muscles", to produce a high enough swing speed to hit the ball optimum distances.

If the "core" isn't strong enough, you won't be able to store and generate any power during the backswing and downswing, and into impact.

Trying to swing harder, and outside what your body is capable of doing, and the result will be more mishits and shorter drives due to off-center impact on the clubface. But if you can make a FULL backswing and store that energy in your "core", you will produce more clubhead speed without swing harder.

The beauty of being stronger, specific to golf is the added benefit of hitting the ball longer, with less effort. This removes the injury factor and improves consistency.

Many golfers think they need to hit MORE balls. That's not the case. Hitting more balls will only put more stress on their already weak bodies, resulting again in injuries and unlimited time "off the course".

The main emphasis in regards to golf strength training should be your "core", which is the abdominals, hips, glutes and even the hamstring tie-in. Doing golf strength exercises involving rotational movements will warrant the best, most effective results.

Remember, the golf swing is a rotational movement and any golf strength training programs should incorporate a big percent of the golf exercises to rotational movements.

A good example of such an exercise would be the seated twist with exercise tubing.

? Using door attachment, place tubing 3 feet from ground in door.

? Place ball several feet from door. Grab both handles with both hands.

? Face sideways from the door, raise hands to chest high with arms extended.

? Rotate hands holding tubing away from door until there is sufficient tension.

? While keeping hands at chest high return to starting position, but maintain tension on tubing at all times.

? Repeat until full set is done and reverse motion and position facing the other way.

This is just one of dozens of golf strength training exercises that will quickly and dramatically transform your game. You will have wondered why you hadn't started years ago.

It's NEVER too late to start! Don't put it off any longer!
