The basic golf swing isn’t so basic! As a strength and conditioning specialist I can personally tell you that swinging the golf club involves hundreds of muscles that generate the proper force to strategically place that tiny white ball where you want it to be placed. The truth is that whether or not the ball goes where you want it to you still have to have the power and control behind it when it counts. This is where a sound strength and conditioning program comes into place!
One single exercise that I guarantee will amp up your game and improve your golf swing is the kettlebell swing. If you aren’t familiar with kettlebells by now then I’m going to do my best here to get you caught up. The kettlebell originated in Russia. They have been around for over three centuries and world strongmen, athletes, and even the Russian military have used this hard hitting ancient device to build the fittest bodies in history. The cool thing is that the base lift that is executed with the kettlebell is known as the double arm kettlebell swing.
This particular lift is performed by you swinging the kettlebell from between your legs up to your chest level. This is done by you engaging your hips in a movement known as the hip snap. The hip snap is performed by you fluently flexing and extending at both your hips and knees in order to create the necessary momentum to properly swing the iron cannonball. This one single exercise integrates hundreds of muscles (just like the golf swing) and effectively trains your body through resisted MOVEMENT which is essential for any athletic task.
Go ahead and kill two birds with one stone by getting both physically fit and improving your golf swing! The kettlebell is your ticket. Train hard my friends.
