An 18 round game of golf may take upwards of 4 hours to play, however your actual activity time with the exception of walking around the course will be less than 2 minutes of club swing. With the exception of putting, the action involved with the golf swing requires controlled explosive rotational force.
Our FREE golf exercises below should help you to build strength and muscle to cope with this expolsive force :
Plyometric training will enable the golfer to increase both driving distance and accuracy, combined with a reduction in injury.
Due to the physical capabilities of most golfers, care should be taken to work at your own fitness level, as plyometrics will place maximal demands upon your muscles - aim to get yourself in shape prior to over exerting yourself.
Rotational strength from core abdominal work, combined with a small amount of leg and upper body exercises, should ideally be performed once a week, however at least two days rest should be had before playing any game.
