A recent study found this regimen to be extremely effective. As similar studies have shown, strength training brings about significant improvements in lean body weight, reduced body fat, increased leg strength and joint flexibility and a reduction in systolic blood pressure. But more important, at least to the golfers in this study, was the significant improvement in club head speed. The 17 exercisers studied increased the speed of their swing by an average of 5 mph. The control group experienced no such improvements.
Flexibility is another important key to developing a full, fluid golf swing. Simply swinging the club is not enough, but you can increase the range of motion in your shoulders, trunk, low back and hamstrings with just a few minutes of daily stretching. but don't save yoru stretching until five minutes before you teel off. Flexibiity exercises must be done everyday. And always warm up your muscles before you stretch them to increase your range of motin and prevent injury.
