It is no secret that most of the male and female tour players
who want to play their best golf, do golf weight training
exercises. But it�s not the kind of grueling, sweating stuff
you�re thinking about.
There is a HUGE misconception of what and how this type of
program should be done. It does not take going into a gym and
lifting heavy weights; nor does it take a 2-3 hour daily
I have seen many �so-called� golf weight training programs,
books, and videos etc that do in fact show the golfer in the
gym and on machines. Sitting on a machine, isolating one muscle
group is not golf-specific or sport-specific for that matter.
Golf is a dynamic movement done on your feet. Sitting in a
machine in a �controlled� environment will not improve your
The golf swing incorporates most of the muscles of the body in
a sequential motion. I hope you can now see sitting in a
machine won�t improve that.
So what truly is a �golf-specific� program?
For starters, doing a lot of exercise �on your feet� and in
your golf posture will help. The more you can get in your
posture and strength train, the quicker the benefit to your
Golf also involves balance and stabilization. To improve this
takes a concentrated effort on core work and exercises
involving balance (such as one-legged exercises).

golf swing, directly relating to more power, distance and
These pieces of equipment are very inexpensive and portable.
You can have a complete golf fitness gym in your home for under
For example, exercise tubing is approximately $20 and you can
immediately do golf swings with it. This is as golf-specific as
you can get. Doing your actual movement with resistance will
dramatically increase your power output.
There are dozens of simple, golf weight training exercises you
can do with the above equipment (and in your home). The beauty
of this type of golf training is saving time and money, but
most importantly making it fun and enjoyable.
When you do these types of golf weight training exercises you
will be encouraged that it will be the missing link to your
Often, we try to get on the fitness, weight-loss bandwagon,
only to quit after just a week or so. With the above type of
training, your doing both. You not only see a dramatic
improvement in your game, but the icing on the cake is looking
and feeling better.
I have worked with hundreds, if not thousands of golfers via
the web who have sent me emails stating how they have stuck
with their programs longer than any other time in their life.
They say the connection between health and golf is what did it.
So don�t get overwhelmed the next time you here about golf
weight training. With a little research, you can be doing your
golf weight training program in your home in no time.
