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: Be gentle with the driver for greater consistency!
The human kinetic chain is a crazy awesome force we have from within. To optimize and tap into its potential, you simply cannot force things or try hard as this is not conducive to self-preservation for a human being.

We explore Adam Scott’s AutoFlex shaft setup in his Titleist TSi4, and see if there could be more reliable combinations out there that offer the same amount of distance but better dispersion.
Clement: How to nail the first move in your downswing!
This first move in the downswing is very much a product of the right focus on a specific task that will engage the body’s “self preserving system” to shift weight on time and clear the hips the right amount to find the direction we want to start the ball according to the flight plan we chose to begin with. To do this well, we need to understand how the weight shifts from the backswing into the downswing as this will prepare the transition to facilitate this engagement. We have such an amazing machine; all we need to do is give it the right simple task! Enjoy this video down memory lane as we have been doing this move since the Bobby Jones days!
