Golf Exercises For Swing Power

All it takes is simple golf exercises, to quickly improve your swing power for longer drives. You don’t need to go to a fitness facility. You don’t need fancy, expensive equipment. You can do it with just a few pieces that will cost you a whopping $50 at the most.

The best part, is you can do it in the comfort of your home in just a few minutes a day. How cool is that to not have to drive to a gym, nor even go to the range and pound balls? Just get out your accessories, and get going.

So what do you need in your home to do these simple exercises?

Golf Exercise Ball

You’ve seen the big fitness balls right? They can now even be seen in office where people have replaced their chairs with these balls. The great thing about them is how they indirectly work your stabilization muscles, as well as your core, which are the power producers in your golf swing.


A pair of 10 pound handweights is all you need to be able to do dozens of exercises specific to the motions and movements in your swing. They allow you to do dynamic movements that mimic the same movements your perform when you hit a ball. Unlike machines in a health club that usually require you to sit down (golf is standing), and they only isolate one muscle group, where golf uses all of them dynamically.

Resistance Tubing

I’m sure you’ve seen this. It’s like extra long rubber bands with handles. They are very light in weight, and easily portable so you can use them in your home, at work, or even when you travel. Just make sure you have a door attachment, or you’ll be limited in what you can do with them.

Improving Swing Power

Because the golf swing is rotational. You must incorporate twisting type movements to your training program, if you want more power and distance. You can do them standing in your golf posture, or seated so it takes your lower body completely out of it, and really emphasizes your core.

The second area for more power is the back of your shoulders. Especially the lead shoulder, as it is the one that gets really stretched in your backswing. Strengthen this area, and you will have a very powerful downswing, coming into impact.

I hope this article motivates you to start your exercise for golf program right away.
