The Core of Your Swing - Week 4

RSS

Welcome to week 4 of our new series The Core of Your Swing! With my golf fitness classes you can improve your golf game, increase your fitness level and accomplish your New Years resolution of getting healthy! For this series we will be using a stability body ball found in the Golf Fitness Pro Shop. The ball is accompanied by an instructional book and is discounted for Golf Channel subscribers.
 
The Great Body Ball Handbook

 
When you incorporate the stability ball into your workouts, you improve balance, flexibility and coordination for your golf swing by calling on the core muscles of the body.
 
Step 1: To determine your current fitness level, take the Fitness Analyzer on KellyBlackburn.com.
 
Step 2: Print a copy of the strength training log.
 
Step 3: Each week you will have 2 new exercises. This is a progressive workout which means that every week you will perform the new exercises along with the exercises from weeks prior. If you are just joining us, go to weeks 1, 2 and 3 to catch up! You should now have 8 exercises on your training log.

Step 4: Perform the workout 2-3 times a week for maximum results!

Here are the benefits you can receive from this series:
 
1) Improve balance
2) Increase flexibility
3) Improve coordination
4) Strengthen core muscles: abdominal, mid and lower back muscles
