The Core of Your Swing - Week 6

RSS

Welcome to week 6 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 through 5 to catch up! You should now have 12 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
 
Testimonials
 
From Jim in Atlanta, Georgia: Kelly I truly cannot believe that having an in-home workout area the size of 9 x 11 has afforded me the convenience of doing a workout routine that I can stick to weekly. I have your stretch trainer, strength tube, stability ball, power ball and weighted club. I follow the DVDs rotating each program daily for a total of 5 workouts each week and I have lost 17 pounds, improved my overall stamina for my game and feel great! For you doubters let me tell you it really works!
 
Thank you for sending your personal accomplishments with these classes. This week we will concentrate on the low back and hamstring muscles as they work hand in hand in your golf swing. Lets get started...
