12-min Explosive Power Workout for Golfers (Cardio 004)
Apply Your Power
One of the most important elements of maximizing your power is using your lower body. Shifting your weight and timing the sequence of the lower body with the flow of the arms will help you get your maximum power and speed to get more distance. Only using your upper body restricts the amount clubbed speed you can apply to the ball. Also, only using your upper body, to try to get more distance, destroys the natural path of the swing resulting in swing compensations and could lead to injury in your elbows, wrists and hands.
This workout features exercises that will, not only help you learn to use your lower body in the swing, but will also help you build strength and endurance for more power in your core, hips and legs. There are nine exercises including mobility exercises to keep your motion fluid.
In this workout, we use the Shortee Practice Club, the Slope and a medicine ball. All the exercises can be modified if no equipment is available.
