Power & Swing Speed Training

What’s the secret to hitting longer drives? Well, quite simply it is a matter of club head speed, and club head speed is ultimately determined by how quickly your muscles respond and contract. Pure strength may make you stronger, but it won’t maximize your speed. In fact, training to increase your strength could actually make you slower.

Remember your physics class: Force = Mass times Acceleration. What that means is that the faster you can accelerate your golf swing, the more force will be applied to the ball, and the farther it will travel. Any golfer, who is serious about improving their game with longer drives, needs to train their muscles for speed and quickness.

Long drive golf exercise program will give you longer drives and shots by training for speed of contraction and, at the same time, strengthening the primary muscle groups involved in swinging a golf club.

How it works: Your muscles consist of basically two types of fibers – Fast and Slow. The slow twitch fibers are responsible for strength and repetition of movement.

The fast twitch muscle fibers are responsible for the speed of muscular contraction, and a fast twitch response is the ability of a muscle to rapidly contract to a specific distance over a short period of time.

By developing your fast twitch muscle fibers, perhaps now for the first time, you will increase the contraction velocity of the muscles in your back, shoulders, hips, arms and wrists – the result is always greater club head speed and power and longer drives and shots.
