Want to Improve Your Golf Game?

Begin an exercise program today!

  Golfers today should take note from some of the top professionals like Tiger Woods who regularly engage in an exercise resistance program. The golf swing itself involves the following muscle groups: triceps, latissimus dorsi (back), pectorals
(chest), rhomboids (upper back), wrist, forearms, and glutes/quads (legs).
 
The question is can an exercise resistance program improve a golfer’s swing?  In a study published in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, 18 male golfers over the age of 60 were randomly assigned to an exercise group, or a control group.
 
The exercise group (N= 11) participated in an 8 week program consisting of flexibility exercises, core stability exercises, balance exercises, and resistance exercises. The control group (N = 7) did not engage in any exercise program.
Pre and post exercise measurements included club head speed of the driver by radar.
 
The experimenters concluded the exercise group displayed significant improvements in club speed and components of exercise compared to the control group. Athletes today more than ever are realizing the impact of how resistance training can improve their game.
