Fit For Golf! Fit For Life!, Heavy Ball Workouts
Workout #1: Standing Work
Workout #2: Floor Work
Welcome to FFG/FFL Heavy Ball Workout! I'm Mindi Boysen and as a Golf Fitness Trainer here in sunny Arizona, I meet with a variety of golfers on a daily basis with YOU being my newest client! Now golfers, like yourself, come in different sizes and shapes with very unique abilities and needs, but the one thing you all DO have in common is that you want to play better golf!
In this workout program, I am going to take you to the next level with a Heavy ball. Hopefully, you've already become proficient or at least familiar with my other DVD programs one using nothing more than body weight as your guide and My Big Ball Workout. Though this program uses a different piece of equipment, you'll find it has the same three themes as as the other programs and focuses on what you as a golfer really want:

Let's review the muscles used in a golf swing

Your body, as you may have experienced, gets used to or gets bored with the same routine pretty quickly. This phenomenon is known as the adaptation principle .also known as Do the same, Stay the same. So it is important to stress the muscles in different ways in order to promote growth and strength. The Heavy ball will help add resistance to your body in different planes of motion and directions. The ball also allows you to effectively develop the core or trunk muscles that are so crucial to the golf swing.
To challenge yourself in this workout, you will need a heavy ball. Choose a 2-4 or 6 lb. ball to start with or ideally all three! As your body becomes more familiar with the exercises, to fight boredom and adaptation, you may move up in weight or add extra repetitions to each exercise!
Each workout is approximately 15 minutes long. Workout #1 focuses on Standing dynamic warming work while workout #2 puts you on the floor for more core strength. You may elect to follow the workouts on alternate days or do both back to back in the same day for a longer workout session! Remember, always use good form and don't forget to breathe! Gook luck with your workouts and good luck with your game!
