I find that many of you spend so much on golf equipment and such.
How about taking some time out to ensure that you are fit for the game?

My personal trainer has helped me so much with making sure that i am fit for the game with golf specific targeted routines, and i have seen amazing results to my golf swing.

Why not call him for a FREE Trial Lesson and with no obligation, see how much he can do to help.

You're never too old to start a regime of fitness, so you can play even in your 80s like Arnold Palmer and Gary Player can.

Call Teddy at 86570141. Just tell him Jason introduced you for Golf Fitness.

Well, i played 81 yesterday at Kranji from Blue, with an Eagle on #13.
Had 2 approaches (210m and 217m) which i managed to get on with my 3W.

I played 80 at Orchard 3 weeks ago.

And managed to get on in 2 for both of the Par 5s at Palm Springs Island #1 and #8 from Blue tee (about a month ago). Played 82 and 83 for both my games there. Never achieved this before.

But it's not all about the score. All this was about 3 months into my gym sessions. Core and Trunk rotation come easily now, which help in keeping the ball straight through longer irons and the driver.

Don't flame me, just sharing what i believe can be achievable with proper core fitness sessions. Up to you to try it and push yourselves. All i know is, buying new clubs all the time isn't really gonna help you gain lower scores. Smile

Good Luck!

No flaming. Just wondering. From your score, it seems you already have your basics right. Well, great to see it works for you. Break 80s very soon. Happy golfing.

I tried TRX with Ed b4, super tiring.
Not much of a Gym rat but started Golf fitness strengthening, endurance, power, speed training last wk only. Muscle sore affected golf swing, conditioning period...

Following steps from Books borrowed from library.
suggested 3x per wk, alternate with aerobic exercise (swimming/jogging 20min)...
power = strength x speed ==> 20 fastest continuous driver swings in morning & b4 sleep.
shacked out!

Yes, fitness is important.

I m currently doing a rojok crossfit training with some swimming; targeting mainly my lower body (abs downwards) which helped me greatly in my swing.

Thou I m still playing in the 100s but I can see great improvement in my golf fitness compared to how I m when I started abt a year ago.

Fitness not only make ur body fitter but also will prevent injury to ur body. Golfers need to condition their body in order to be stronger n fitter.

Ed bro,
I stop my conditioning gym program cos sore muscles affecting golf swing & packed tournaments & practise golf rounds.

my prog = 3 gym sessions per week
endurance training i.e swim, jog = 3x per wk
range,chip,putt = daily (2-3hrs)
sun = rest

now reduced to 1 gym + 3 jog
exploring plyometric exercises for golfers
the rest same

but, at the same time, my low back muscle is sore everyday & rhomboideus major is aching without enough rest. if I rest for curing, the gym session gonna start the muscle sore again...

I guess I have not enough rest...
any advise of training schedule for full time training golfer like me.

thks,Fred

Fred,

Myb u should try getting a supplement for recovery.. eg Creatine. This supplements help to boost energy and promote recovery at the same time.
Plan a workout when u hit the gym. Do more core body workout to strengthen lower n upper back.
Swimming to me is not necessary... if jogging is good enough for ur cardio.

Lastly u must have a good 7hrs rest for recovery....

Fre,

I m not a qualified coach but my job requires me to maintain my fitness (IPPT gold twice yearly) but I m never slim fit type. I must admit that in order to be extremely fit, you must train on a daily basis but u must incorporate proper training regime n adequate rest n proper diet so that your body can recover in time.

One of my Rojak crossfit prog;
(3-5 set within 30mins)
10 - 15 x leg raise (hanging from chin up bar)
10 - 15 x squat
10 - 20 x crunches
10 - 15 x squat jump

Swim is good for strengthening your back especially if you can swim freestyle. Swim with a float between ur thighs n make sure that your legs are constantly parallel to the water surface. If your legs always sinks, your lower back or your neck is not straighten while you swim.
