Power Golf Exercises That Are Proven To Add Distance
by Mike Pedersen, CPT

Power golf exercises are a unique set of exercises that you do not do in a gym on machines, nor do you lift heavy weights. For that matter, you can do simple power golf exercises right in your home with minimal equipment.

You see... to improve the power in your golf swing, you need to look at the mechanics that create the power.

It's not your arms swinging the club as hard as you can! It's not your legs driving your body through the swing! And it's not swinging some funky 50 inch shaft with a 600cc titanium head either.

It's quite simple!

The power in your golf swing is your CORE!

Your core is the engine to your swing. If your core is weak or inflexible, you will never be able to hit a powerful tee shot. This is harsh...but very true!

The modern power golf swing is one of being "connected" with your upper body. Not letting your letting your arms get separated from your body. Rotating your upper body as a whole, over a somewhat stable lower body will produce maximum power at impact.

So the perfect power golf exercises involve rotational movements with resistance in your core area. The are many exercises you can do that will dramatically improve your driving distance and power...and no gym required!

A simple power golf exercise for your core is my Seated Twist w/Dumbbell:
  • Sit upright in your chair.

  • Hold single dumbbell straight out from chest with arms fully extended.

  • While keeping your head focused straight ahead, rotate your arms to the right, then to the left as far as you can go both ways.

  • Do this non-stop for 20 total rotations.

  • Pause for 15 seconds and repeat 2 more times.
At first you will feel very restricted in your midsection. That's a sign of how limited your rotational flexibility really is. But do this exercise daily and you will see improvement quickly.

The next time you step out onto the course, you'll blast your drives up to 20 yards further!

As you can see above...the key is ROTATIONAL exercises with resistance, whether it be a single dumbbell, exercise tubing or even a weighted golf club.

Doesn't matter what you use, as long as it is up to 5 pounds in weight and you can handle it easily in both hands. If you're already in good shape go for 10-15 pounds and increase your rate of speed. This will both improve your "fast-twitch" core muscles and also your range of motion for a bigger backswing and a complete follow through.

So you see... I wasn't fibbing! It doesn't take a gym or fancy equipment to do effective and proven power golf exercises!
