    HI Geremy. I can confirm how many seconds should be up, the first exercise and from the second exercise set and how many move by set shoud do

  2. Hi Frank,
    I’m not sure I understand your question, but I believe you’re asking how many sets/reps for the plank and the alternating push-up plank.

    Plank: Work your way up to 1 minute hold. If you can’t hold for that long, do 4 sets or 15sec, 3 sets of 20sec or 2 sets of 30sec. Once you reach 1min, you can begin to work towards 2 or even 3 minutes of total plank time.

    Alternating Plank: Work up to 8-12 reps and do 2-3 sets. Make sure you change which arm you push up with periodically so you don’t work the same arm all the time.

    Hope that answers your question,

  3. Jeremy ,
    Are THE “plank “exercises bringing you added benefits from THE simple push ups ?
    I perform my push ups holding a sort of handle in each hand ,it ‘s easier than to push up on THE palms .

    • Hi Raymond,
      Yes, I like changing up from the regular “push-up” from time to time. This is a great way to do that. For those of us with wrist issues, holding some kind of handle is a great idea.

  4. Jeremy ,
    I also do what I call the LATERAL BRIDGE :it’s a plank sideways ,holding on left or right elbow .
    Does it have THE same or different benefits from THE regular plank ?

    • Different benefits… the one you mention handles lateral stabilizers. Great exercise for the core.

    Jeremy -

    I’ve just recently lost some good inches around the love handles over the past 5 months by doing mostly running and interval training on the treadmill. The workouts are somewhat getting boring and I’m thinking about switching to doing more calisthenics and/or circuit training. Do you have any recommended workouts that I could follow?

    I was thinking of still running everyday for at least 20-30 mins, but I would add push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, planks, squats, deadlifts, leg ext, etc to my workout about 3 times per week.


    • Hi Ryan,
      I’m glad to hear you’re looking for a more well-rounded approach to your workouts. Your body is probably getting “bored” too. It’s important to change your exercise routine so you’re not doing the same things all the time. Your body will respond well to that. Concerning your question about a specific routine to follow, I’m a firm believer that if you have specific goals, you need to be evaluated properly. The FMS (Functional Movement Screen) is a great example and many trainers are becoming educated in this area. It’s similar to golf instruction. A good golf instructor isn’t going to just start giving you random drills… they’re going to assess your swing/game and instruct based on their findings.
      Having said that, if you choose not to find an expert in the field, at least make sure you’re getting these requirements each week:
      *Upper Body Push and Pull exercises
      *Lower Body Push and Pull exercises
      *Core Strength
      Good Luck!

    Jeremy ,
    I do an exercise which you don’t d

    • Hi Raymond,
      Continue the exercise as shown by your physiotherapist. Exercising the lateral abdominal muscles is important for a well-rounded golf fitness routine. Save the “fast-twitch fiber” work for plyometric activities such as kicking, striking, jumping and/or throwing.

My assistant, Pete Mitchell is offering you a special deal on Skype Video Lessons. If you buy 3 you get a 4th lesson FREE!

So many people keep wondering if they are doing the right positions as they work on their swing. With Skype, we can now watch exactly what you are doing and check it for you.

Skype is a free program that allows you to connect to us through video on your phone, iPad or computer.

If I had an opportunity like this when I was learning the swing I would have been all over it. Now, you don't have to guess and get on your way to building a great swing by the time spring rolls around.
