  • Rotational Ab Exercises For More Power

    I'm always surprised when I see golfers in the gym doing basic, "non" golf exercises, typically with machines. This is not the correct approach if you want more power, distance and consistency.

    One quick tip for more power is incorporating rotational exercises for your core. If you're a golfer, there is no need to do standard crunches, when your golf swing is rotational.

    The more effective approach is to add a twist to any ab exercise you do, whether it's in the gym or at your home.

    One simple core exercise I like and do nearly daily in my golf fitness routine is The Russian Twist on a stability ball.

    Take a look at the above picture to see it.

    This is a good exercise to develop your hamstring muscles, without any equipment.

    Support yourself up resting one knee and foot on the floor and both hands slighter wider than shoulder width apart, palms facing forward.

    Keeping one leg off the floor, at about shoulder height, bend at the knee bringing your foot up towards your head.

    Throughout the exercise aim to keep your back straight, and look down towards the floor at all times.

    Repeat on both sides.

  • Sit Ups (abdominals)
    greghutton
    The most common form of abdominal exercise performed to help develop stronger firmer abdominals.

    Remember to read the notes on abdominal techniques for extra guidelines.

    Place your feet in tight towards your bottom, or rest them on a bench, to isolate your abdominals.

    With your hands locked behind your head, keeping your chin off your chest, come up to an angle no more than 30 degrees.

    You should commence the exercise with your shoulders and aim to keep the elbows out by your sides.

    Stop immediately if you feel any pain.

  • Tricep Dips
    greghutton
    Sit comfortably on a bench or strong chair. Place your hands by your sides, on the bench, palms down facing forward.

    Place your feet together in front of you, or if you wish to make the exercise harder have your feet on another bench.

    You may wish to lift one leg up to help work the Hip Flexor muscles.

    Bend at the elbow, taking your arms back, whilst lowering yourself up and down.
    Make sure the bench or chair is secure, as they can slide away.

    The movement should be smooth and under control, with the aim to bend your arms to a 90 degree angle.
