In the past and even now, strength and power training practices have been a highly-debated topic.
Times are changing thankfully, but both elements are still hugely neglected, especially amongst amateur golfers.
Training for strength and power is essential in every sport. If done correctly, it will help prepare you as a golfer for the physical demands placed on your body. Training for strength will also reduce the risk of injury while increasing your force output, giving you the ability to hit the ball further.
When you implement a well-designed program that includes the right type of exercises which, also consider all of the above, then you’re onto a winner.
You need to increase strength & power in your legs, hips, back, shoulders, arms and core, these are the links which connect our kinetic chain, and each link feeds off the other.
There can be no disconnect between these vital links as these are the foundations that will provide you with stability & mobility, leading to greater power with less effort.
It doesn’t matter how fast you can swing a golf club. If the foundation on which you are swinging is not stable, you’ll be unable to control the path of the golf club consistently.
