CardioGolf Modified Kettle bell workout

Posted on CardioGolf Online Golf and Fitness Studio by Karen Palacios-Jansen

A few great things about this routine:

1. Core muscles, which include the abdominal and back muscles, are essential to the golf swing to create power. Performing core exercises on a regular basis can help strengthen muscles to improve golf swing and prevent injury.

2. Equipment is needed for this workout, but there is a modified version available is there is no equipment available.

3. If you do not have the time to train like an elite athlete, simply adding a few swing drills to your daily routine can improve your game dramatically.

This is your daily groove for your lower body- building muscle, helping to improve your golf swing, and preventing injury.
