Long drive golf exercises will increase your golf swing clubhead speed...which can add up to 30 yards to every tee shot very quickly. To hit long golf drives you need maximum power. Power is the equivalent of both strength and flexibility specific to your golf swing.
The key to implementing long drive golf exercises is to look at the main movement in your golf swing.
What is it?
Is it a lateral movement (side-to-side)? Is it a vertical movement (up and down)? I'll stop the "twenty questions" and cut to the chase.
It's a ROTATIONAL movement!
Golf is rotational! You make a backswing (rotate). And you make a downswing (rotate).
If this is the case what strength and golf stretching exercises should be done to maximize your long drives?
You guessed it ROTATIONAL golf exercises!
You don't need to spend 2 hours a day in an athletic club. And the equipment you need is very inexpensive. All you need is you, a couple of pieces of affordable golf exercise equipment and a little creativity.
There are dozens and dozens of rotational strength and flexibility exercises you can do right in your home or office that will reap HUGE dividends on the course. In my 350 page Power Golf Training Manual, I have pages and pages of these strength and stretching exercises for long drives.
Exercise All Your Major Golf Muscles.
I'm a firm believer in working the "total package" in regards to exercising all the major golf muscles in your body. Every golfer is different, and has unique needs (limitations) that should be addressed.
The major muscles involved with long drive golf exercises are the core muscles (first-and-foremost), the hamstrings, glutes and lower back muscles.
Your Golf Support Muscles Are The Shoulders, Wrists And Even Upper Back.
The secondary (support) muscles for incorporating long drive golf exercises are the shoulder rotators, forearms (wrists), upper back (lats), and the hip girdle. These muscles are "icing-on-the-cake" muscles in regards to hitting power golf drives every time you step on the tee box.
This is not rocket-science, but you do need to make sure you are doing the correct exercises that will give you the biggest return on your investment.
I hope you have a better, initial understanding of long drive golf exercises.
Improving your core with golf workouts specific to your golf swing is the ticket and that is why I produced my Golf Workout DVDs to improve your golf specific strength and flexibility right in your home with minimal equipment.
