Use A Golf Training Club To Quickly Improve Golf Swing Speed
By Mike Pedersen
Using a golf training club is one of the most effective ways to increase
golf swing speed and power. You canít get anymore golf Ėspecific than using
a golf training club.
There are many golf training clubs on the market and new ones coming out
every year; but the one Iím talking about is a weighted golf training club. When you can literally mimic your athletic movement with resistance, you stand the make the biggest improvementÖand
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 thatís 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 wonít be the cure to all your physical ailments
and limitations, but will give you a head start on swinging with higher clubhead
Just think about it! Swinging a golf training club wonít improve hamstring flexibility, nor will it strengthen your lower back. There are many specific areas of the body that donít
get worked when swinging a golf training club.
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 thatís 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, youíve 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 golf training club; so
go out and get one. They are a great training aid as part of your Ďoff-seasoní training
