Golf exercise equipment can be a variety of pieces; but what truly is golf exercise equipment?
You’d be surprised to find out it is not expensive; and is not necessarily in a gym or health club either.
Yes…there are golf “machines” for stretching and strength building that are well over one thousand dollars, but are definitely not needed.
When you think of golf swing, it’s a dynamic movement completed in space with your ‘whole’ body. So any kind of training or golf exercise equipment should be able to accommodate this.
For starters, a pair of hand weights (dumbbells) are inexpensive, portable and can be used for dozens of golf-specific exercises. They don’t have to be heavy or cumbersome. You’d be surprised what a 5 to 8 pound pair of dumbbells can accomplish with right golf exercises.
Next on list of golf exercise equipment is tubing. You may have seen it in articles, on television or in a catalog. Exercise tubing is extremely portable, very inexpensive and also can be used to mimic many phases of golf swing, but with resistance.
I personally use exercise tubing in all of my programs, with all of my personal clients and in my own golf workouts. It can give you one heck of a workout if you have right resistance. These bands come in varying tensions from light to extra heavy.
