Hopefully, you enjoyed your day off yesterday in our week-long golf fitness workout program. Depending on how you feel, take another day off if your sense that your body is telling you to do so. You know best what you are feeling.
However, assuming you’re ready to rock again, let’s get on to Day 5 and Workout 4.
Day 1 – Dynamic Swing Strength
Day 2 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Swing Speed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 3 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Downswing Overspeed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 4 – Rest & Recover
Day 5 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Swing Strength, Dynamic Swing Speed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 6 – Dynamic Downswing Overspeed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 7 – Rest & Recover
Workout 4 is going to be the most intense of our five workouts. There’s nothing new for this particular workout. We’ve already done all the training blocks thus far this week.
For the strength exercises, do make sure you are trying to go up in resistance if you are safely able to do so while maintaining good posture and solid swing fundamentals. Raise the resistance proportionally in your speed exercises using the bands too. And of course, with your full swing repetitions, keep pushing there too.
To swing faster, we need to try to keep swinging faster and faster!
Workout 4 is an interesting one. If you don’t have time to do all five workouts from this particular week-long program, you can actually just do Workout 4 roughly twice per week and still get great results. It’s what I’ve personally been doing for the most part. For example, I’ll do the Workout 4, take 2-3 days off depending on how my body feels (and the weather since I’m doing it outside on this patio), then repeat, similar to this:
Day 1 – Do Workout 4
Day 2 – Rest & Recover
Day 3 – Rest & Recover
Day 4 – Do Workout 4
Day 5 – Rest & Recover
Day 6 – Rest & Recover
As I mentioned in the first article of this series, using mostly Workout 4 has led to these speed increase results for me personally:
– Day 1 – 117mph
– Day 2 – 122 mph
– Day 5 – 129 mph
– Day 7 – 127 mph
– Day 11 – 132 mph
– Day 14 – 132 mph
Okay, let’s go through the workout together in the video.

TXG: BEST VALUE DRIVER of 2021 // ST-Z vs. ZX7 vs. RADSPEED

Walters: Try this practice hack for better bunker shots
Your ability to hit better bunker shots is dramatically reduced if you have no facility to practice these shots. With so few facilities (especially in the UK) having a practice bunker it’s no wonder I see so many golfers struggle with this skill.
Yet the biggest issue they all seem to have is the inability to get the club to enter the sand (hit the ground) in a consistent spot. So here is a hack to use at the range to improve your bunker shots.
Clement: The significant difference between hitting up vs down with the driver
In this incredible video, we show you the significant difference between what hitting down vs hitting up on the driver does—which absolutely confirms why Kyle Berkshire went from 5th in the world in long drive competitions to world champion.
Savy has this 7-to-9-degree positive or upward angle of attack and you will see in this video, just the difference of four degrees can affect the outcome by over 50 to 80 yards!
