The Fit for Golf Workshop was held at Holliston High School, Holliston, MA. on April 28th for Holliston Adult Education with great success. 8 participants came with clubs in hand to work on flexibility, core strength and balance, three keys to a healthy golf game. The workshop was 2 1/2 hours long, and participants were given handouts of the exercises performed in the workshop so that they could begin their own “Golf Conditioning” workout. The materials and exercises used for the Fit for Golf Workshop will be available online soon! Until then, feel free to contact me by phone or email for further information about golf conditioning.
You will notice that many of the exercise programs on the website use physio balls (stability balls). Why? Research has proven that using stability balls to train the abdominal and back muscles is far superior to training these muscles in traditional way. A recent study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that women who used a physio ball during a 5-week exercise program achieved greater gains in torso balance and muscular activity as compared to women who performed the same exercises on the floor without the ball.
