My Journey to Better Golf
I have not really had any specific training goals over the last few months as I have been basically been in a maintenance phase since covid. Some has been due to lacking of real motivation and some has been due to being busy with my new business venture. But regardless, I am now committing to making progress in strength, power, speed and bodyweight over the next 6 months.
I will also be committing to working on some much-needed swing improvements in that time frame and hopefully come out next spring being able to play some better golf. For me my swing speed is more limited due to poor mechanics than it is physical capabilities.
I will build my training around getting strong in the main lifts, getting powerful via med ball throws, jumps, and Oly lift derivatives and speed via under/overspeed training, band work and Speed specific practice.
I will be performing Re-assessments every 4 weeks to track my progress.
