The golf swing requires total-body coordination. Everything works together, simultaneously to achieve the swing. It is rare that you’ll ever see me recommend a typical “gym/weight-lifter” type exercise where you are trying to isolate a muscle for maximum growth and bulk…
But as you know – you will see me recommending total-body movements which require: balance, coordination, range of motion and equal use of both sides of the body (not necessarily both at same time).
On that note I want to share this 4 minute Medicine-Ball, CardioCore Combo Workout:
WARNING: this workout is not for everyone reading this post today. So I suggest you run it by your doctor and get medical clearance before trying it. Better safe than sorry.
After you get clearance and are ready to give it a go – you can feel free to use it as a stand alone conditioning routine – or you can add it to something else which I’ve shared with you in the past.
Either way – take it slow, start light and easy – and build up the reps gradually – and the sets (times you go through the routine) to about 3-5 and you’ll have a sweet, golf-specific mini-workout you can do anywhere and you can make it part of a bigger, more elaborate, program.
Please don’t be stingy – feel free to pass this onto all your golfing buddies. It will help me bring you more good articles and videos like the one above.
