Golf workout routine for rotational power

June 03, 2020 12:19 AM

This week, we released a new installment of our "Quaran-Tone" Series that centers around increasing clubhead speed through simple golf fitness. In this 27-minute video, Dr. Jeremy James takes you through a comprehensive rotational power training routine using basic tubing equipment at home.

"TIME UNDER LOAD" FORMAT

Throughout this routine, Dr. James uses the "time under load" concept. This format is one way to make strength gains is by keeping the muscles under load by lengthening the "eccentric" phase of the exercise.

Eccentric means the part of the exercise in which the muscle is lengthening, not shortening. A simple example of this can be demonstrated by thinking of the bicep curl. The eccentric part of that exercise is when you are lowering the dumbbell back to the starting position (the "concentric" phase is when you are bending the elbow towards your body, doing the "curl" part of the movement). Lengthening the time of the eccentric phase is a great way to build strength and that's what this workout does.

KEYS TO AN EFFECTIVE GOLF WORKOUT

This workout does it all. As a challenging workout with just tubing, this routine demonstrates how the GOLFFOREVER team creates short, effective, and worthwhile workouts that can be done with minimal equipment and time. Importantly, it also hits on the two keys to an effective golf workout:

1. Addresses all the important aspects of the game:

  • Balance
  • Rotational power
  • Upper and lower body strength
  • Agility
  • Core control
  • Mobility

2. Stimulates the muscles to make gains in strength
