Exercise for a golfer is widely used. Despite success many professionals have enjoyed, and continue to enjoy in their game, mainly because of golf-specific exercises, many amateur golfers still shun any golf specific exercises.
Even when it is rather obvious that leading names in game like legendary Tiger Woods heavily rely on staying in good shape for game by having personal trainers and by being involved in golf specific exercises.
Bt far main reason why most still fear and avoid exercise for golfers is belief that they will develop muscles. Actually lifting weights are a very effective way of toning golf-specific muscles for game, by strengthening them. Strength training using weights will never increase size of your muscles.
Nobody would loathe building big muscles more than most lady golfers. Yet many of them have dramatically improved their games by increasing their strength through golf-specific weight training. Actually you need to be in gym several hours a day lifting very heavy weights to develop a weight-lifters’ muscles. The weight-lifting exercise regime for golf involves lifting lighter weights many more times over a very short period of time compared to a weightlifter looking for muscles with heavier weights lifted fewer times at a time but for longer hours daily.
