Last week I received my new Core Performance for Golf, dvd and workout manual. It is done by the good folks at Athletes Performance out in Ariz. All I can say is wow. The workouts are based around flexibility, stability, muscle recovery and regeneration, power and strength, without using weights, or highly sophisticated equipment. All you need is a med ball, a physioball, a piece of rope for stretching and a golf club, if a speed stick is not handy. Can add a pair of stretch bands for about $8 and a foam roller for another $20. I have learned much about how stability, flexibility, the core and hips provide power in the golf swing.
The first workout I was pooped from the stretching warmup. The stretching is very golf specific and you really get an idea of how the body funtions in the golf swing. I have learned that I knew very little about how to stretch correctly.
Regeneration???? Helping muscles recover after a workout, or a round of golf. Who ever heard of a way to get rid of that stiff back, tight hamstrings, or that sore feeling in the feet from walking a round. Yes, a means to help the feet recover, by rolling the foot around on a golf ball to improve circulation.
