The golf swing is actually a turn back and turn through. Most of movement is pure rotation. This means doing golf swing exercises like a seated twist holding a dumbbell straight out in front of you is a very effective exercise in strengthening and conditioning muscles used in golf swing.
Be careful not to use very heavy weights in this golf swing exercise. 3-5 pound dumb bells are ideal. Remember that a golf club is not heavy; in fact it weights less than a pound.
Repeat this golf swing exercise as many times as you can within a 30-minute session without straining yourself. Do remember to warm up before you begin session and also to warm down when you are through. Warming up ensures that you do not start with your muscles cold. Stretches involving muscles that you are going to use can also be extremely useful before you go into this golf swing exercise.
