Number one-ranked golfer Rory McIlroy has bagged two majors this year and was recently crowned the Race to Dubai winner (the European Tour’s equivalent of the Fedex Cup), yet he was still working up a sweat in the gym as he headed into last week’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

Check our some of McIlroy’s leg workout moves below, as well as some explosive power and speed work from McIlroy’s Instagram timeline from September. On his website, the Irish golfer outlines his philosophy on fitness, saying: “I take my physical fitness and well-being very seriously. I believe that being in good physical shape helps me to be a better player. I can drive the ball further, my energy and concentration levels are improved and I feel like I have an extra edge when the pressure is on. A healthy body equals a healthy mind.”
