Today I'm going to try to help you break the mold when it comes to golf fitness training.
Now it's always good to be specific, mimic the motion as much as we can, sometimes we need to break out of that box, [inaudible 00:00:16] as much as we can.
Again, isolate through total body movements, whatever it may be.
Medicine ball time.
I'm going to show you three exercises I love and have all my players do.
Grab a ten pound medicine ball.
We're going to start with the keg throw.
We're going to keep a nice, straight back.
I want you to squat down.
What you're going to do is we're going to raise up, explode, and as we're coming through we're going to lift and throw the medicine ball as high as you can, okay? Try to benchmark each one.
Try to throw a little higher.
It's like that strong man competition.
We're down and up.
Use those legs.
It's okay if they come off the ground.
All right? That's going to help us train, [inaudible 00:00:54], get everything firing.
The next one is another variation to where we go through the same thing but now when we come up, I want you to extending it through that back and trying to throw it up and behind you as far as you can.
This one is great if you're by yourself.
Run, chase it down.
Throw it out again, okay? We've got that nice back and forth, starting to hit that cardio element.
If you want to have a friend that's going to be fine as well.
The other thing that we could do to really isolate to where we're laying down, in through here, we're going to fire and throw it as high as we can.
Obviously make sure you catch it, and go again.
Now we're working on that chest.
A lot of people who come in that I've seen have a lot of chest strength.
Maybe they can bench a lot, but it's not functional or helpful when it comes to the golf swing because it's such a slow movement.
This is something to help fire, again, build up more speed, more power, help you hit longer drives, thinking outside of the box.
