Single leg training is a staple in my Fit For Golf Online Training Programs. (CLICK LINK IN BIO FOR PROGRAMS, or message me). Performing exercises on one leg versus two changes the exercises in a couple of important ways. ➡️Increased stability work for ankle, knee, hip, and trunk.
➡️Helps identity potential deficits between right and left sides. You don't want too big a difference, a little bit is normal. ➡️Less weight needed to derive a training effect which can be useful for those struggling with injuries.
Even though golf is performed on two legs at a time, where our pressure and weight is located can be 80-90% on one leg during different parts of the swing. Being weak in your legs can potentially lead to issues like sway, slide, and a general lack of power.
This exercise, the single leg hip hinge really works the glute and hamstring on the standing leg.
I still have athletes perform exercises on two legs at a time, as the stable base generally allows for better force production, important for power and strength @mytpi #mytpi #tpi #fitforgolf #golffitness #fitgolf #golffit #stronggolf #golfstrong #golfpower #powergolf #strengthandconditioning #golfonlinetraining #golfstrengthandconditioning #clubheadspeed #trackman #longdrives
