I have a bowflex at home that is collecting some dust right now.  I was wondering if anyone knows of any golf-specific workouts tailored to the bowflex machine.  I can't seem to find anything.

Thanks.

Working out in general is good. Work on strengthening your core muscles

just the working out is good, not as good as actually doing some compound lifts, as youre not using those "stabilizers" you use in a golf swing, but its always good to strengthen the muscles used in your golf swing so emphasize Legs and back, tri's are also good but basically anything is going to help as excercise on a bowflex, not really going to hurt you unless you hurt yourself

I am not familiar with the bowflex... but is there any way you could simulate high to low or low to high woodchoppers?  That would be a good workout for your core and would simulate some abdominal movement in your swing.

I would think that any basic core workout would help your game.  In all honesty, any workout helps you gain better muscle control which in turn will help you control your swing more.  However, make sure that you have a good post-workout stretching routine so that you do not lose any flexibility.  Losing flexibility can mess with your swing.

I'm a huge fan of the bowflex. I recently started playing golf again after two shoulder surgeries, I'm now really into making sure my shoulders are strong and I've noticed huge gains in keeping the ball straight. Here's the four exercises I would do on the bowflex.

Internal Rotation
External Rotation
Reverse Fly
Shoulder Press

They are all in the manual you can download from bowflex.com

Cheers!
Andy

The bowflex sucks.  Get a health club membership and you can use whatever equipment you want.  Plus you won't have to dust that bowflex anymore.  They always say home fitness equipment makes a good clothes hanger.

bodybugg is right, the bowflex isn't very good, but for people who have already dropped at least a years membership to a stellar gym on it, you work with what youve got. But he is right due to the fact that no where in life will you be working one muscle without stabilizing any others like free weights do

I have one at a friends house near King of Prussia PA.  I see you are in central NJ.  I was going to ship it to TX but it may not be worth the hassle.  Interested?  It is from about six years old with the lat bar and leg machine.

Do not be so lame, who do think suppliies your gym with all the equipment? Bowflex! The Nautilus Group and is now Nautilus, Inc. which owns and markets the Bowflex along with Nautilus, Schwinn Exercise, Stairmaster and Pearl Izumi lines among other brands. These are just a few that BowFlex deals with.  A 15 minute warm-up on the BowFlex and I will be loose and ready to play my best. There are unlimited exercises one may perform using a BowFlex! Plus your not going to have to wait for a machine to open up! BowFlex keeps me hitting long and strong. I'll take a BowFlex and a couple of dumbells anyday. With a basic BowFlex try these simple exercises for a solid core; Use the low pulley cable to do hip extensions, dead lifts and squats. Work your shoulders with seated shoulder presses, lateral raises and shrugs. Abdominal exercises include the seated crunch and trunk rotation. Keep it simple and stay in form. Then when your buddy asks you i you changed driver or gol balls you will know!
