Whether you play golf or not, I’m willing to bet you know who Tiger Woods is. He is one of the few people in sports who has become a celebrity
throughout the world.
He’s going to go down as the best golfer in history and some
would argue he already is.
There are a lot of things that Tiger can credit for his golf game and one of them is his fitness
He is very secretive about pretty much everything in his life and that includes his workout
program. This has lead some to believe that he’s doing
something illegal, like steroids, in order to get his physique and excel on the course.
That’s ridiculous. Tiger is very fit, but a
steroid user he is not.
When it comes to fitness, though Tiger has changed the game of golf. He has made everyone start paying attention to their fitness as it
pertains to their golf game. Even Phil Mickelson looks like
he’s started to pay a little attention to his waist line.
Not to mention that all the young golfers are coming in a few steps ahead of the older guys
because they’ve been training for years.
But what’s so special about Tiger’s workout program? Is there anything special about it? Does he do some secret workout program invented by the
Soviets? I’m sure that’s it because the Soviets were always
known for their awesome golf game.
I don’t think it’s a secret at all. He just
does what he needs to do to be a better golfer. He focuses
on exercises that will make him excel on the course. He
focuses on strength and mobility.
I can almost guarantee you that he doesn’t spend hours upon hours sitting on weight machines in
his home gym doing regular old Machine Chest Presses or Machine Lat Pulldowns.
He most likely focuses on full body movements as well as some “core specific” moves to help him
better his game.
Here are some of my favorites that I use in my own programs and with clients.
1) Lots of push-ups. Focusing on push-ups
will not only work your chest, but also your shoulders, triceps (back of your arms), upper back, butt and
core. All of those things need to be strong to have a good
golf game. There are endless amounts of different types of
push-ups so it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or advanced exerciser.
2) Core moves like Planks and Mountain Climbers. Just like push-ups, these are excellent core strengtheners and
stabilizers and will help your game tremendously. They also
help with your endurance which will help you push through late in the round.
3) Lower body bodyweight movements like squats and lunges. The golf swing uses a lot of hip power, not just your upper
body. If you only use your upper body in the golf swing,
you’re asking for an injury and a really bad golf game. Having
strong legs and hips will lengthen your drives and increase your stamina, especially if you want to walk the
4) Proper nutrition. This has to be a part
of any golfer’s fitness program. If you pay attention to Tiger
at any tournament, you’ll see him eating fruit, nuts and drinking electrolyte drinks and water throughout the
rounds. He knows how important these things are to his golf
game and his health. Eating things like fruit and nuts while
golfing will help keep your brain sharp and focused which will help ensure you don’t choke in the later holes
and turn a good round into a 120.
So take a hint from Tiger, and me, and work these things
into your workout program and I guarantee you’ll
be hitting it farther and straighter in no time, not to mention burning more fat and getting a better
