Drive the Ball Longer With Our Golf Workout
Hit the ball farther and prevent injury with this routine from PGA trainer Scott Riehl.
Our golf-specific training routine involves lots of rotational exercises. Twisting your torso while maintaining your balance is tough for most guys—especially lifers. That weakness costs them strength and power in the weight room (and on the golf course). This workout will also correct posture issues.
Frequency: Three times a week after your regular weight training or on days in between
Time Needed: 15 minutes
Perform the exercise pairs (marked “a” and “b”) as alternating sets. So you’ll do one set of “a”, rest, then one set of “b”, rest, and repeat for all the prescribed sets. Switch the order of the exercises each time you repeat the workout, but keep the pairings. Switch the rep ranges too, alternating between 12-15 and 15-20 reps. Rest 30-90 seconds between exercises, depending on how you sequence them (you’ll find that more difficult moves done back-to back will require more rest).
