The Golfer Medicine Ball Overhead Slam is a favorite here at the The Renegade Golf Fitness Institute for a couple of reasons:

  1. It develops power and distance; and what golfer doesn’t want more of that?
  2. It’s fun and is a good stress-reliever. After all, you get to smash something, and not get in trouble.

Although in essence it’s a straight-forward exercise, there are a few details you should know about the Golfer Medicine Ball Slam exercise.

First, you need to choose the right type of medicine ball. There are many kinds on the market, and some will give you a better workout, while others might just give you a bloody nose.

And second, because it’s a power exercise, it needs to fit into your training routine at the right time and with the proper set and rep scheme.

Not to worry, I cover all that and more in the Golfer Medicine Ball Slam video below:

And as I mention in the video, the Golfer Medicine Ball Slam is a perfect pairing with Pull Ups, for what is called Contrast Training.

Contrast Training is a great segway from a Strength Phase to a Power Phase. In the example of Pull Ups/Slams, you are first performing the Pull Ups in a Strength rep range and tempo i.e. 8-12 reps at a moderate speed. Then you immediately follow that up with the Golfer Medicine Ball Slam with a Power protocol i.e. 6 reps FAST.

I cover all those details in the video below:

Let’s build up some slamming power… and Get After Old Man Par.
