The truth of matter is that in golf, dumbbells are used to build strength, and not muscles, by lifting much lighter weights up and down, more times than a bodybuilder does.
The sessions are also much shorter than those of a body builder who have to spend most of day in gym lifting extremely heavy weights to build their muscles. Actually it is true that building muscles will tend to bring in stiffness and very opposite of functional flexibility.
A good golf exercise training program must also include stretch exercises which are a great help in attaining functional flexibility for golf.
It is functional flexibility gained from weight training and stretches that can greatly improve golf swing of any golfer. Actually greater functional flexibility for golf...the better golf swings.
