If you’re looking for some more variety for your core workout, here’s a great exercise. Be prepared though. It requires a good amount of core stability and perfoming this one correctly requires control.
Golf season is here!
Golf is about flexibility, rotational strength and power, but many golfers aren’t sure how to develop that strength and power. I want to help you make this your best season ever and I’ve got a series of exercises that can help make it happen.
It doesn’t take a lot of equipment. There are no fancy gadgets with a golfers name on them needed. Just a little bit of time and commonly available tools.
First things first though. Let’s talk flexibility. Most golfers limit their flexibility routine to the 30 seconds while waiting at the first tee box. They take out the big dog driver, place it over their shoulders with their hands wrapped around the ends, and twist from one side to the other.
If you’d like to do more for your game, here’s a full body stretching routine that will take only a few minutes but if done a once a day, will shave strokes off your game.
If you’re ready to add strength, power, and speed to your game over the next 7 days, just enter your info below and you’ll be on your way to a better game with my latest video series!
If you want a faster, stronger, more powerful golf swing, you need these exercises!
I love functional training. I use it with all of my clients, in different ways.
Because your body works as a system, not in isolation. There’s a place for isolation exercises like bicep curls and calf raises, but when it comes down to it, are you trying to develop ripped calves or are you trying to develop an explosive jump. Most people work out because they want to do something with their bodies, like out-jump, out-run, or out-last the competition. If you’re trying to develop your body to work effectively as a system, functional training is the answer. Even if your goal isn’t athletic performance and you just want to move more effectively, functional training is important.
My hands down favorite tool for functional training is the TRX Suspension Trainer. You can use it for literaly hundreds of different exercises and get an amazing workout using just your own bodyweight. With every exercise, you’re training your core to stabilize your body as well as working the prime mover muscles to perform the exercise. As an added bonus, you can get that workout done in a shorter time because you don’t have to wander all over the gym switching weight plates, machines, etc.
I use it with grandmothers and I use it with athletes. Just a few small adjustments with your body position and each both the grandmother and the athlete get an equally effective workout.
Here’s a video with just a few examples of exercises you can do with the TRX Suspension Trainer.
You’re either going to love or hate this exercise, but there’s no doubt that it will help you develop a strong core.
This is one of my favorite exercises!
