Golf Fitness Adventure Part 2

Week 3 of the Titleist Performance Institute 8 week home training course has come and gone.

As mentioned previously, I have been assigned with 4 exercises to do each week. Some on a daily

basis and some on an every other day basis. The major challenge has been adding 20 minutes to my

16 hour day. I “likes me sleep”.  Here is the 2nd of the four assigned exercises.

The Reach Roll Lift Up. The toughest of the four for me. You start by kneeling on the ground and

sitting back onto your heels. Place both arms on the floor and in front of you and reach out as far

as you can. Roll your palm to the sky, and then try to lift your arm up off the floor. Make sure you

only lift your arm, not your trunk. Repeat on the other side. Start with 2 sets of 20 reps two to four

times a week. As you gain strength add 3 to five pound weights.

Golf Fitness Adventure Part 1

Week 1 of the Titleist Performance Institute 8 week home training course has come and gone.

As mentioned previously, I have been assigned with 4 exercises to do each week. Some on a daily

basis and some on an every other day basis. The first week presented some challenges as I was

reminded that my schedule of working 16 hours a day is not conducive to fitting in time to

exercise. I managed a good work out on Sunday and Monday, but worked late Tuesday through

Saturday. Here is one of the four assigned exercises.

A basic hamstring stretch with leg raise, this stretch is held for 30 to 45 seconds, two

to three times on both sides twice daily. The leg raises are done slowly during the

stretch and one can typically get in 8 or 9 leg raises during the 30 to 45 second stretch.

Golf Fitness Adventure

“I’m… supposed to… be able… to do what?” – I gasped between one charley horse after another.

This was during my Titleist Performance Institute Golf Fitness Evaluation. Local TPI certified

golf fitness trainer, Matt Miller of the Center For Physical Rehabiliation was taking me through

a series of a dozen golf fitness specific tests.

 

The tests included both strength and flexibility and are based on the Titleist Performance

Institute (TPI) research of thousands of professional golfers. After my 60 minute evaluation

and explanation, I was taken through another 30 minutes of personalized training targeting

my areas of inefficiency.

 

I was given a series of four different exercises for an 8 week – in home – training program. “Four”.

Not a dozen or more. Which was nice. The program is relatively simple and takes approximately

18 minutes a day.  After 8 weeks I will receive a post evaluation to determine how I responded.

 

3 of the 4 exercises are for strength and one for flexibility and I will be highlighting progress

and a description of each in this blog.
