Golf season is upon us! Resident personal trainer and golf enthusiast D.Jak walked us a quick golf workout you can do at home with limited equipment. Try this workout if you're in a golf league, preparing for an upcoming golf scramble, or have a golf buddy that you don't mind getting a little better.
First Exercise to Improve Your Golf Swing - Banded Core Rotations:
Second Exercise to Improve Your Golf Swing - Banded Romanian Deadlift:
Use a slightly heavier band for a Banded Romanian Deadlift. This exercise is a great way to improve your posterior strength.
This directly translates to mobility, stamina, and power on the course and will help your swing remain consistent over 18 holes of golf. Or 36 if you're really having yourself a day.
Third Exercise to Improve Your Golf Swing - Windmill Slam
Now we're on to a more explosive exercise and piece of equipment: the Windmill Slam. This exercise leverages a wall ball to generate power from the core and replicates that weight transfer that takes place during your golf swing.
Windmill slams will improve your power and keep you more consistent with that transfer of weight.
Fourth Exercise to Improve Your Golf Swing - Partner Lateral Toss
Any heavy ball can be used for this partner exercise! We're sticking with the wall ball here. Grab your golf buddy and combine a bunch of movements that work your hip rotation, transfer of weight and engage your core.
This is another great simulation of of a golf swing and will have you adding yards to your drives in no time. It's also a great teamwork building exercise for your company scramble.
