Should Young Athletes Condition?

Posted by & filed under .

Conditioning is one of the most difficult topics to understand. A lot of people do not actually know what conditioning is or how to implement it. There is also a bit of uncertainty between conditioning and punishment. Sometimes the lines get really blurry. Usually when a team doesn’t play or practice well, the coach will […]

Golf Fitness- Building Durability

Posted by & filed under .

This past weekend we got see Tiger return to golf. There’s almost a zero chance I would have watched it if he wasn’t playing. Rickie Fowler’s 61 and front nine 28 just don’t really seem to matter. The Big Cat is back and he looked good. Rusty, but good. The most impressive thing that I […]

Smart Strength Training for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

This past week was probably not on many golf radars. The tournament was in Kuala Lumpur and aired on TV late at night Wed-Sat for us on the east coast. The odd time for coverage of the event and going up against football probably made for a decrease in viewers. Pat Perez won and it […]
