If you’re strength training, make sure your exercise selection will promote better performance in golf. In general, weight machines may be effective if you’re looking to build muscle mass, but are not great for improving golf movement. Instead of machines, elect to use dumbbells, kettlebells, and cables. Perform most of your exercises in a standing or weight bearing (non-seated) position.
Using free-weights and cables, and training in a weight bearing position promotes better core strength, joint stability, balance, and overall movement. See the video below for exercise tweak examples:
If you try these exercises and you find them to be too challenging or uncomfortable, do not continue, until you have consulted with your physician. All exercises for golf should be customized to your needs after a proper evaluation.
