    great stuff

  2. Jeremy ,I have just reviewed these excellent exercises for THE strengthening of THE lower body ,which is THE basis for THE Power in THE golf swing ,as THE Power Comes from THE earth upwards .How do you call THE adjustable REEBOK platform you use un this Video ?
    CAN I use a BOSU ball instead ?
    Now ,a completely different question :I exercise occasionnally with a very ancient piece of equipment ,called THE “BULLWORKER “invented a long Time AGO (1963 ) by GERT F KOLBEL
    THE exercises are based on “ISOMETRICS “:perform THE exercise 6 Times then hold THE 7th one 7 seconds .
    This looks quite easy ,but it isn’t !
    What is your opinion on these static exercises ?
    Are they of no use for golf improvement ?

    • 1. Reebok Adjustable Step
      2. I’m not familiar with this equipment but Isometrics are a fantastic form of strengthening for the golf swing. According to the latest biomechanics research, we get the majority of power in the golf swing due to stabilization of certain body segments at the correct time (just before impact) like a whip. Though acceleration is crucial, segmental stabilization is even more crucial in terms of distance. Isometrics are a form of stabilization strengthening.

    Jeremy: Should these “reps” be done every day.? Or 3-4 times per week for instance? Are there other (leg/glut) exercises that you could direct me to? I’m just a new member and have not gone thru the whole” Ignition” site yet.
    Thanks in advance for any info.

    • Welcome to Ignition Golf, Dave!
      The first exercise shown above could be done every day or could be a great pre-golf warm-up. As the exercise gets more difficult with the squat, step and medicine ball this is going to take more muscular effort. If you get to a pretty good level of fatigue in the leg muscles you may want to rest 48 hours to get muscle recovery.
      As for other lower body exercises, go to the FLEXIBILITY tab located in the red bar above. Press that and you will find many pages of exercises, such as ‘What are Glutes” “Advancing your Leg Strength” and “Increase your Lateral Hip Stability.”
      Have a great time looking through the website!

    Jeremy ,
    How is this fine exercise diff

    • Sorry Raymond, I’m not sure which one you’re referring to. There are a couple you may be thinking of: the “Hip Swivel” is for balance and flexibility and the “Standing Hip Stretch Stretch” is for aiding in recovery and flexibility of hip and glute muscles. Let me know if there is a specific one you’re referring to if not one of the above. The video above is mainly working on golf specific leg strength to promote weight transfer and strength.
