Use A Golf Training Club To Quickly Improve Golf Swing Speed

Using a golf training club is one of the most effective ways to increase golf swing speed and power. You can’t get anymore golf–specific than using a golf club designed especially for training sessions.

There are many golf training clubs on the market and new ones coming out every year; but the one I’m talking about is a weighted golf training club. When you can literally mimic your athletic movement with resistance, you stand to make the biggest improvement…and quickly.

The goal of most strength coaches and trainers is to come up with exercises that closely resemble that particular athletic movement, but with some for of resistance. It could be handweights (dumbbells), medicine balls, tubing, or even a stability ball.

The direct impact on a golfers swing using a golf training club is an almost immediate increase in driving distance. This is because you are training your golf muscles during the movement, through the same (or even bigger) range of motion, with many repetitions.

A secondary benefit of using a golf training club that’s weighted is promoting an increase in backswing and follow through range of motion. This equates in more power at impact. Golfers are always trying to find ways to improve golf flexibility and power; and this is one way to do it.

Using a golf training club won’t be the cure to all your physical ailments and limitations, but will give you a head start on swinging with higher clubhead speed.

Just think about it! Swinging a golf training club won’t improve hamstring flexibility, nor will it strengthen your lower back. There are many specific areas of the body that don’t get worked when swinging a club designed specifically for golf training.

This is where you would do specific golf exercises, stretches and drills to isolate those weak areas to greatly improve your overall golf performance and prevent future injuries.

Another benefit of a golf training club that’s weighted is a quick warm up before you hit balls at the range or even play. Swinging it 20-30 times will quickly get your golf muscles prepared to hit balls more effectively.

Just beware! When you swing it before practicing or playing, you’ve got to swing your regular clubs, and hit balls with them, to make sure your sequence of motion is correct, before you hit the course.

As you can see, there are many benefits of using a training club for golf; so go out and get one. They are a great training aid as part of your ‘off-season’ training program.

 

How to Determine Your Golf Training Priority

This is a question that is often asked for the simple reason that knowing one’s golf training priority will enable them to improve their game within the shortest possible time.

To answer it correctly a golfer needs to know what their particular area of weakness is. For example if they tend to slice the ball in their golf swing then their golf training priority should be exercises that address that particular weakness in their game.

Other times a golfer will have a nagging back problem which refuses to go away despite medication. Many times the back pain will be in the lower back and will usually be aggravated by playing golf.

The golf training priority of such a golfer is to get golf specific exercises that will give them endurance and strength. The exercise must also be targeted directly at the lower back.

There is in fact such an exercise which I have described in several of my other articles. The result of this exercise is that the pain will disappear and the golfer will be able to hit the ball on the course and enjoy playing golf virtually the whole day without the discomfort and pain that previously occurred or was aggravated whenever they previously played a round of golf.

Many times your golf training priority exercises may involve the use of dumb bells. However this is not as strenuous as it may sound as the exercises are geared to wards building strength and not muscles and usually much lighter weights will be used.

To be able to fully understand what your golf training priority is, it is useful to consult with golf exercise experts who will usually recommend a program that will do miracles to your golf game.

It is important that your golf-specific exercise program starts with the correct golf training priority for you and your game.
