Building A Strong Foundation
Strength Training Goes A Long Way In Golf And Life
Charles Davies

A good strength training program, be it for golf or daily health and well-being, consists of just a few simple yet effective movements.

This month we focus on the following:

• Push (Push up to Dumbbell)

• Pull (Dumbell row to Pull up)

• Squat (Bodyweight to Barbell squat)

• Hinge (Pick up exercise to Barbell Deadlift)

Each of these movements can be regressed and progressed according to individual physique and strength. Aim to perform these exercises up to a certain level over time to ensure longevity not just in golf, but also in living a fit and healthy life.
