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 […]

Golf Fitness Made Simple

Posted by & filed under .

It has been over 2 weeks since I have played golf. That is a long stretch but not out of the ordinary for this time of year. Between work and the weather, it is becoming difficult to get out there. I always joke that 40 degrees in March is way different than November. Our golfers […]

Using Bands for Resistance Training

Posted by & filed under .

I am writing this about 15 minutes after my roommate sent me some videos from the morning show on the Sports Hub. I admittedly didn’t catch the beginning of what he sent me so I did kind of miss the whole conversation. What I did catch was that they were talking about using resistance bands […]

Progressing the Plank for Golfers

Posted by & filed under .

Golf season appears to be winding down here in MA. I think the biggest factor is football season. A lot of people try to make plans and do things for the game on Sundays. Never mind some of us psychos are very big on Saturdays too (Go Noles). I also encountered a 38 degree morning […]

Stronger and More Stable Athletes

Posted by & filed under , .

Sometimes I will use strength and stability almost interchangeably. On one hand strength is stable. On the other, we can break this down a little bit further. I have seen a lot of young athletes that get up to some pretty good numbers with their lifts. I have also seen some not so strong athletes […]

KB Pullovers for Better Golf

Posted by & filed under .

I have spoken quite a bit about why I do not understand combining exercises. I am not really sure why this is so prevalent in the golf world but I still do not see the use. My big underlying argument against them is that you cannot put full effort into each movement if they are […]

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 […]

Increasing Speed with Linear Bounds

Posted by & filed under .

There is a lot to learn when it comes to increasing speed and quickness. We are lucky at Evolution to get to work with the amount of athletes we have. The more experience we get the better we can be at what we do. One thing in particular that a lot of athletes struggle with […]

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 […]
