Achieving additional power in your golf swing is almost certainly achievable, just realize you have to do very specific power exercises and that it doesn’t happen overnight.
There are certainly many training systems and many exercise programs to try but I wanted to focus on one particular dynamic, power golf exercise that will surely add a minimum of 10 yards to your drive.
One caveat: This is a quite advanced exercise and one that should not really be done unless you already have a solid core strength program that you practice as well as an adequate amount of flexibility as you really need a solid, strong core to practice this golf power exercise.
One we here at GolfDash recommend is the Core Performance System that we have written about in our article, Core Performance Golf: The Training Program That Will Set Your Game Free – I have personally practiced this program and highly recommend it to build solid core stability and strength for your golf swing.
That being said I wanted to introduce you to a training aid called the Tornado Ball (you can get one at the link below – goes to Amazon). This really is a cool, fun (and exhausting!) training aid.
It’s basically a weighted rubber ball on a piece of rope that you swing around your body with your back to a solid wall. It’s meant to be swung in a series of movements that can increase flexibility, rotational strength, upper body strength, coordination, agility and balance. This ball really packs a lot of punch!
From all my conversation with golf fitness experts, when doing these “power” exercises (whether it’s the tornado ball or other “explosive” exercises) it’s advisable to only do 1x – 2x per week ONLY. They are extremely exhausting and there is no proven benefit to using them more than once or (at the most) twice per week.
