One of the most fundamental components of athletic movement is learning how to connect with the ground! As a golfer ground force is crucial for rotary power and generating club head speed. Thought: The fastest athlete or the athlete that can jump the highest isn't the athlete that moves the fastest. It is the athlete that can exert the most force into the ground and control that force. In this video Brandon Harris CO Founder of Premier Fitness Systems a Scottsdale, Arizona based fitness studio specializing in golf performance and teaching athletes to increase their ground force production shows a few foundational exercises to learn how to create better ground forces for increased club head speed in golf. The key to understanding ground force and how it works is to first understand Newtons third law of motion. Third law: When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body. To create power in the golf swing a golfer must drive the legs forcefully into the ground. This results in the ground pushing back up into the golfers body with a equal magnitude of force. This force is know as the ground reaction force or ground force. The ground force is transferred up the kenetic chain from the ground to the legs into the pelvis up through the core and shoulder complex to the arms and finally the golf club and to the ball. If a golfer doesn’t have stability and strength in the legs, pelvis, core and shoulder complex there will be major loss of energy transfer and lack of club head speed.
In this video Greg demonstrates 3 advanced core training exercises for all the golfers out there. As a golfer the ability to create rotational power is key for performance. A strong core allows a golfer to control and create rotational forces and not to mention connect the lower and upper body. These 3 exercises are more advanced so always make sure you are doing all mobility and stability exercises and that you have a solid foundation before progressing.
Here's what a Golf Fitness warm up routine looks like. Movement in your training program should mimic what you do in your golf swing. The key components being Thoracic Spine rotation, lower body stability and hip mobility. In this Golf Fitness warm up routine we take you through a warm up that we do with our golfers. Hope you guys enjoy and learn from the video. Our mission with our golf fitness program is to help golfers play better golf and play pain free
Creating separation and dissociation between the upper and lower body is key for a quality golf swing. In this video Brandon Harris Co-Founder of Premier Fitness Systems gives you 2 variations of a great exercise to help with separation and t-spine mobility as well as lower body stability and strength.
Having great hip and torso speed is key to hitting the golf ball. The ability to separate the trunk from the torso is extremely important for this skill. In this video Brandon Harris CO-Founder of Premier Fitness Systems a Scottsdale Arizona gym that specializes in golf fitness and golf performance teaches you 5 exercises that will help you increase your ability to separate your lower and upper body. A main reason that a golfers swing speed is not up to par is lack of flexibility and mobility. With lack of flexibility comes a decrease in the ability to separate the hips and upper body at the begging of the downswing. A golfer that doesn't have good separation will begin to compensate with other aspects of their body. Most noticeable compensation will be with the low back! This potentially will lead to injury and definitely lack of consistency. The goal of this video is to teach 5 exercises that will help you with separation of the upper and lower body and decrease the tendency of rotating the upper body before the hips. This tendency is one of the main causes of the over the top move. All of the 5 exercises demonstrated will help you sequence your swing correctly and will immediately have a positive impact on your swing.
All athletes need a blend of flexibility, mobility, stability, strength, power and endurance. For any rotary athlete the ability to separate segments is crucial for optimal performance. In this video we demonstrate a great drill for t-spine rotary development. This drill can be done at home or in the gym and is amazing for increasing separation between the lower and upper body. Hopefully it helps.
This one stretch can dramatically benefit you golf game. If the hips are tight, especially the hip flexors, your body will be forced into a chronically hunched forward possession. This forward position will dramatically effect your ability to achieve a full back-swing and therefore limit your power. This limiting rotation can and will cause back pain by your body compensating with a reverse spine to get to the ball.
