Maximize your strength training routine by cutting out these time wasters.Read article
Chicks dig the long ball.
Okay, that’s a different sport (baseball, and a quote from one of the best sports commercials of all time) but the point is still the same: You’ll impress all your friends by launching long drives on the golf course or the driving range.
But if you aren’t feeling great about your driving skills, this golf-specific routine will help you add some yards to your shot in no time.
Twisting your torso while maintaining your balance is tough for most guys—especially lifers. That weakness costs them strength and power in the weight room (and on the golf course).
This training routine involves lots of rotational exercises that will help you once you get onto the course.
This workout will also correct posture issues. You should do the workout three times a week, after your regular weight training, or on days in between.
Perform the exercise pairs (marked “a” and “b”) as a super/compound set.
So you’ll do one set of “a,” then one set of “b,” then rest. Repeat that sequence for all the prescribed sets. Switch the order of the exercises each time you repeat the workout, but keep the pairings.
Rest 30-90 seconds between exercises or supersets, depending on how you sequence them (you’ll find that more difficult moves done back-to back will require more rest).
