Weight Vest Training for Golf
Incorporating a Weight Vest into Your Golf Training Program
For many people, a nice relaxing round of golf on the weekend is what they look forward to all week. After all, golf isn't a sport right? It's a lifestyle and a leisure activity. Golfers aren't "athletes" so why would they need to train like one? At Resistance Wear, we don't fall into this line of thinking. Golfers (weekend warriors all the way up to the best on the pro tour) are ABSOLUTELY athletes. And as with any sport, training will make you better. Just because there's not a ton of running or jumping on the golf course does not mean the sport itself doesn't take a great deal of athleticism. Whether you're looking to hit the ball further, have better touch on your short game, increase your endurance over multiple rounds or you just want to be a more consistent member of your foursome, golf training that utilizes a Resistance Wear weight vest can help you get there.
While distance off the tee may be the first thing you think about, it shouldn't be the only thing you're focused on. Accuracy (to hit fairways and greens in regulation), club head speed (to get you out of those rough spots and sand traps) and swing consistency will all help you lower your handicap. Golf training should naturally be more "golf-centric". As such, you should be thinking about your endurance (even if you're a cart-only player) and your core strength. After all every swing you make, even your practice swings, utilizes your core. Either on the course or in the gym, a golf training program that utilizes a Resistance Wear weighted training vest allows you to focus on these areas simultaneously.
Whether you're looking to win your club championship or just improve your score the couple rounds a month you play, weight vest training can make the difference the next time you hit the links. Resistance Wear vests are designed with your golf training in mind. Hit your driver further and with more accuracy off the tee, get through long rough with your irons, explode out of a wet sand trap or have a soft touch with your lob wedge. You'll get the most out of your workout with Resistance Wear.
Benefits for golfers using Resistance Wear weight vest to train include:
- Increased upper body and core strength for huge drives off the tee.
- Improved wrist and arm strength to power through long rough with your irons.
- A supercharged core workout while working on other body parts - simply put on the vest and your triceps and biceps workout instantly begins working your core.
