In this video Brandon Harris Co-Founder of Premier Fitness Systems gives you 2 variations of a great exercise to help with separation and t-spine mobility as well as lower body stability and strength.

Golf Fitness - Warm Up Routine

Here's what a Golf Fitness warm up routine looks like. Movement in your training program should mimic what you do in your golf swing. The key components being Thoracic Spine rotation, lower body stability and hip mobility. In this Golf Fitness warm up routine we take you through a warm up that we do with our golfers. Hope you guys enjoy and learn from the video. Our mission with our golf fitness program is to help golfers play better golf and play pain free

3 Advanced Core Training Exercises For Golf

In this video Greg demonstrates 3 advanced core training exercises for all the golfers out there. As a golfer the ability to create rotational power is key for performance. A strong core allows a golfer to control and create rotational forces and not to mention connect the lower and upper body. These 3 exercises are more advanced so always make sure you are doing all mobility and stability exercises and that you have a solid foundation before progressing.

Ground Force For Increased Club Head Speed

One of the most fundamental components of athletic movement is learning how to connect with the ground! As a golfer ground force is crucial for rotary power and generating club head speed. Thought: The fastest athlete or the athlete that can jump the highest isn't the athlete that moves the fastest. It is the athlete that can exert the most force into the ground and control that force. In this video Brandon Harris CO Founder of Premier Fitness Systems a Scottsdale, Arizona based fitness studio specializing in golf performance and teaching athletes to increase their ground force production shows a few foundational exercises to learn how to create better ground forces for increased club head speed in golf. The key to understanding ground force and how it works is to first understand Newtons third law of motion. Third law: When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body. To create power in the golf swing a golfer must drive the legs forcefully into the ground. This results in the ground pushing back up into the golfers body with a equal magnitude of force. This force is know as the ground reaction force or ground force. The ground force is transferred up the kenetic chain from the ground to the legs into the pelvis up through the core and shoulder complex to the arms and finally the golf club and to the ball. If a golfer doesn’t have stability and strength in the legs, pelvis, core and shoulder complex there will be major loss of energy transfer and lack of club head speed.

Golf Fitness - Creating Rotary Power and Stability

Golf is a rotary sport! The key to developing rotary power is first to develop stability in the scapula and pelvis. To often athletes push speed and power before they have developed stability. This forces the athlete to compensate with dysfunctional movement patterns and lose power. In this video Brandon Harris Co-founder of Premier Fitness Systems teaches you 2 Golf Fitness exercises that will help you develop stability in your shoulders and hips.
