Golf Strength And Power Exercises

by Coach Stephen on

Golf Swing

As all of you long-time Renegade Golfers know, it is vital to follow a protocol of Mobility and Stability basics before you get into golf strength and power exercises.

And everyone agrees that the only cycle of workouts that are more fun than strength training is POWER training.  So let’s say that you have faithfully been nailing your strength training cycle workouts for 2-3 months.  Is it time to jump into a full-blown power cycle?

Here’s a better idea:  Use a “transitional” workout regime that is referred to as Contrast Training.

Contrast Training is an excellent bridge from strength to power workouts, because it combines both golf strength and power exercises in pairs.

Below is a short video clip where Coach Ryan and I go over the basic concept, and provide two demos of exercises for you to try out:

NOTE:  Keep in mind this type of training is appropriate ONLY if you have progressed through your Mobility and Stability cycles, and spent at least 6-12 weeks in your Strength cycle.  If you would like to learn all of the details on how to structure an entire year of workouts, with videos of every exercise, might I suggest checking out our Power Golf Training System below:

Hello – thanks for checking out the blog your comments. I completely agree with your assessment of the specific differences between the actual golf swing and these exercises. However, the purpose of these variations is to target the oblique muscles. We do like to utilize other power exercises that utilize and train the hips in a dynamic fashion as well. Our general philosophy is that not every exercise needs to look like the golf swing in order to still have a high carry-over to performance.

Again, thank you for your correspondence. Please keep me posted on your ideas and progress.
