I love workouts that you can perform at home, at the track or in the gym. All you’ll need for this training are resistance bands of varying thickness. This collection of exercises can be a stand-alone workout or mixed in with the More Pars Training workouts.
One of the most important benefits of using resistance bands is that, unlike free weights, they do not rely on gravity to provide resistance. This increases the potential for use in more functional movement patterns that mimic both everyday activities and sport specific activities, such as golf. Plus, using a resistance band for an exercise can increase the “time under tension” and range of motion because your muscles have to stay engaged throughout the movement.
To get the most out of this Training Guide, perform the movements based on your skill level. I’ve provided icons that represent how long to perform each set. To make any move more challenging, simply adjust the amount of tension by adjusting the length of the band, or opting for ones that are thicker and designed for strength training.
Each exercise encompasses the Power Matrix (Vertical, Rotary, Chop, Wrist & Core Power), which represents the More Pars golf-specific training. The key to success for any workout is clean form and performing with intensity. Perform each (unless otherwise noted) anywhere between 10 and 60 seconds. Rest 60-90 seconds between sets. Go for 3-6 sets in a workout. In all, these workouts should take no more than 30 minutes.
