There Are No Golf Exercises

Posted by & filed under .

Over the winter we had a few baseball teams training with us. At one point we went into one of our rooms that has 9 TRX set up. I like using the TRX with youth athletes because it allows them to train for strength with their bodyweight. Its also hard to do exercises wrong with […]

Should Golfers Chase Swing Speed?

Posted by & filed under .

New equipment has helped the game of golf a lot. One thing that I have seen a lot of in the fitness world is swing speed. We have a swing speed radar and it was easy to get, easy to use, and easy to chart progress. I like using it for before and after. I […]

Is Body Weight Training Enough for Golfers?

Posted by & filed under .

A friend of mine, Nick, from Stronger Golf recently put up this post on his Instagram page. My original thoughts were that I question the necessity of the burpee for anyone really. He is not a fan of it for golfers and I absolutely see where he is coming from. Truth be told, I rarely […]

What do Golfers Even Get From Stretching?

Posted by & filed under .

I am not a fan of stretching. I think there are many other things that we can do to play better golf before I even think about stretching. Even then, the benefits are so minimal that I don’t think they are worth a golfer’s time or money. Personally, I have not really found any benefits […]

Lifting Weights Makes Golfers Bulky, Huh?

Posted by & filed under .

Golf fitness is absolutely in the forefront right now. It was only a matter of time before this happened but we are still divided on where we stand on it. Last week, I discussed how we are absolutely lost on the topic. It seems like the golfers that win are commended for their plan and […]

Does Strength Cause Golfers to Get Hurt?

Posted by & filed under .

I am confused after this weekend. Brooks Koepka just won the US Open. He did it by hitting the ball a mile, stuffing iron shots into pins, and putting incredibly when it mattered. It is really hard to beat those attributes when they are all working together. Its very impressive when you break it down. […]

Upper Body Mobility for Golf

Posted by & filed under .

A lot of mobility for golf is centered around improving rotation. Many golfers will hammer away on their hips in the hopes of improving their swing. What is often forgotten about is the role of the upper body. The upper body plays a huge role in the ability to rotate in the golf swing. When […]

Reducing Reverse Spine for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

My golf game has come a long way in the five years that I have gotten back into playing. I started when I was 12 and played through high school. It was tough to play a lot growing up with limited options in Greater Boston. I actually don’t think I knew of anyone who had […]

Mixing Hip Rotation and Strength for Golf

Posted by & filed under .

When it comes to fitness for golf I am always going to favor strength. Personally, it has helped my game in ways I never would have thought possible in high school. I will always remember the 4th hole at Unicorn Golf Course in Stoneham, MA. It used to play about 150 and I was deadly […]

Stopping Sway for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

The weather is starting to get better here in Southeastern, MA. At least for now, who knows what will come next week. Earlier today, I was able to play nine and it was about 90 degrees outside. This is the first really hot day we have had. The one thing that I noticed was that […]
