A golf strength training routine is the key to more power in your golf swing. Working on strength training specific to your golf swing will help not hurt it.
Golf Strength Training Specific To Your Swing
Take a look at the picture to the right. Notice how I am making a golf backswing with a single dumbbell. This would be considered a golf specific strength training exercise for my golf swing. No harm done. I am using a weight that I can comfortably do for 15 repetitions. This will not hurt my golf swing at all.
There are dozens of golf strength training exercises that can be done with dumbbells like the picture shows. You can literally break the golf swing into many phases and do the same thing as shown. Adding resistance to different phases of your golf swing will add power and distance.
Golf Exercise Tubing Training
Take a look at this picture. I have golf exercise tubing attached to the middle height of a door and am making golf swings through impact with the resistance from the exercise tubing.
This tubing is an excellent training tool for strengthening every aspect of your golf swing. You can do variations until the Christmas, and still have more you can do. If you don't have this golf exercise tubing, you need to go out and get some right away!
Weighted Golf Medicine Ball
How about this picture? I am swinging a weighted golf medicine ball. This is 100% a golf strength training exercise for your golf swing. You cannot get any more specific than this.
Swinging a weighted golf medicine ball or anything that weighs a few pounds will strength your core for a more powerful swing and higher clubhead speed.
