Golf requires a combination of strength, flexibility, timing, balance, power and endurance. Making sure your golf workout program addresses all of these components of fitness means you have to pick an efficient and effective way to train. Enter the TRX. I was first introduced to the TRX while still working as a strength and conditioning coach on the PGA and LPGA Tours. I immediately saw the potential to change the way we train golfers. Unloading movements to create the appropriate range of motion, balance and muscle sequencing leads to dramatic improvements in training results.
Swing components such as weight shifts, balance, staying on swing plane, shoulder turn, core stability and hip rotation all have physical requirements you can address using the TRX more effectively than any other training tool. The TRX Golf Workout DVD is produced in conjunction with Titleist Performance Institute and Dr. Greg Rose, both leaders in golf performance and fitness. Here, we have selected exercises from the DVD and put together a workout to improve your performance on the range and the course. We address all planes of motion, core stability, shoulder mobility, single leg and single arm exercises.
This workout is guaranteed to take your golf fitness to the next level!
