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.

Clement: Why the first 2 feet of the backswing are critical
As a teacher and coach, I see this all too often where the golfer looses his or her balance in the first two feet of the backswing; either trying to keep their head down or doing something funky with their takeaway they perceive they need to do. This easy drill will put you exactly where you need to be in those first two feet to facilitate you your best swing every time!

I reveal the true meaning of the Sam Snead quote “Dance with the one you brung to the dance”. He revealed it himself in his book, although it’s an obscure and abstract reference.
