So hopefully you’ve already read the article posted on flexibility exercises for golfers here. Now that you’re as limber as a Cirque du Soleil performer, you’re ready to get strong. This is where exercises for golfers is really important. Most people don’t think of golf as requiring much strength.
Although if you hit 150 balls at full effort at the driving range you’ll definitely have some sore muscles the next day.
The main areas that we look at strengthening are upper leg muscles and core. Even though a lot of the swinging happens with the arms, most of the power generated in a golf swing (and many other sports) comes from the hips and core. Imagine in the backswing that the body is being wound up like a rubber band.
