The goal of strength training for golfers is to become stronger while gaining increased muscle mass and transferable power. Once you have increased your strength level, you will look to transfer that extra strength into power which will allow you to swing the golf club faster and hit the ball further with more control.
The main goal you should have in the gym as a golfer is to become a better athlete and having worked with various different types of athletes over the years, we can tailor a program here at ACE which is specific to this goal.
With that said, here are four of the key benefits of strength training for golfers.
1. Greater swing speed/increased distance
The main benefit of increasing our strength is that we can transfer that extra strength into swinging the club faster and therefore hitting the ball further.
2. Increased endurance/less fatigue
A good overall level of strength will ensure that you can last 18 holes without getting tired or fatigued early, which improves your scores and level of performance.
3. Improved athleticism/technique
Regular gym work and strength training turns our body into a different animal which is able to carry out the movements required for the golf swing with ease, time and time again.
4. Reduces chance of injury
Increasing the strength and robustness of your body reduces the chances of picking up niggling shoulder or back injuries on or off the golf course.
