Golf Specific Strength Exercises For A Powerful Swing
Every golfer is looking for more power. Golf specific strength
exercises can get you there the quickest. You see...it is not

Another effective golf specific exercise tool is tubing. Tubing is
inexpensive, portable, and can be purchased just about anywhere
(including Target now). I use exercise tubing in all my golf fitness
dvds, manual and membership site because it enables me to come up

with tubing attached to the top of a door. You can't get anymore
golf specific than that. I have received emails from golfers who
have just done this exercise and have seen increases of 30 yards
on their drives.
There are literally dozens and dozens of strength exercises you
can do with tubing that are golf specific.

basketball, but can weigh up to 20 pounds. This is ideal for
strengthening your core specific to golf. Look at the picture
here. I am doing a stationary golf swing with a heavy medicine
ball. This simple exercise can add a massive amount of yards
to all your clubs due to the rapid strength improvement of
