It is no secret that most of the male and female tour players who want to play their best golf, do golf weight-training exercises. There is a HUGE misconception of what and how this type of program should be done. It does not take going into a gym and lifting heavy weights; nor does it take a 2-3 hour daily routine. Golf is a dynamic movement done on your feet. Just sitting in a machine in a “controlled” environment will not improve your swing. The golf swing incorporates most of the muscles of the body in a sequential motion. What works is doing a lot of exercise ‘on your feet’ and in your golf posture. The more you can get in your posture and strength train, the quicker the benefit to your game.
Golf also involves balance and stabilization. To improve this takes a concentrated effort on core work and exercises involving balance (such as one-legged exercises). The more popular golf-exercises are done on a stability ball; using exercise tubing; hand weights; and even weighted medicine balls. This allows you to do many dynamic movements similar to your golf swing, directly relating to more power, distance and accuracy. These pieces of equipment are very inexpensive and portable. You can have a complete golf weight training gym in your home for under $100 easily. This is as golf-specific as you can get. Doing your actual movement with resistance will dramatically increase your power output. There are dozens of simple, golf weight training exercises you can do with the above equipment (and in your home). When you do these types of golf weight training exercises you will be encouraged that it will be focused on the muscles that will improve your game.
