Common Questions

Are Kettlebells Good For Golf?

The likelyhood that doing kettlebell training will directly improve your golf is pretty slim, unless your a professional athlete with very extremely good technique. That being said, they are still a extremeley effective part of a healthy routine that long term will keep you healthy and playing golf for years to come.

What Exercises Help Your Golf Swing?

Golfers are obsessed with rotational movements, but as I mentioned before, strengthening your rotation will be meaningless unless your extremely weak or have perfect technique. The best option would be to use kettlebells to create a full body resistance training protocol. The best exercise would be a half kneeling diagonal banded chop, or just using a variety of these rotational exercises consistently to improve your rotational strength and movement capacity.

What Are The Best Muscles Worked For Golf?

All of them. Trying to hard to develop to much of one part of your body will lead to imbalanced and often to injury. Its important to develop your muscles in unison, training the body as one system rather than breaking it down into small groups of muscles. Obviouslt the most applicable movement pattern to golf is the rotational movement pattern, but this does not mean this should take up more than 10% of your routine.

How Do I Strengthen My Golf Muscles?

By consistently training them using a full body resitance training protocol and making sure you add the rotation movement pattern into this form of full body resistance training.

Does Strength Training With Kettlebells Improve Your Golf Swing?

It’s very unlikely that strength training with kettlebells will improve your golf swing unless you have an extremely weak core, limited rotation movement capabilities or extremely good technique.
