From GolfDigest...The 5 worst exercises for golfers

Your heart is in the right place. You want to be stronger, healthier, and play better golf. But if you're anything like the typical gym goers that Golf Digest fitness advisor Ben Shear sees, you're going about it the wrong way. Several popular exercises that you might think are helping you can put you on the fast track to injuries and make it hard to swing a golf club properly. Shear, who trains several players on the PGA Tour, including Jason Day, Luke Donald and Webb Simpson, has identified five exercises that you should stop doing and offers a better replacement for each.



The Good news abaout each of

The Good news abaout each of these exercised that are bad for golfers, is that I do NOT do any of them. I don't remember the last time I worked out with weights so I guess I'm not hurting myself with the wrong kind of exercises. Not that I'm helping myself either. I used to do a fair amount of weight training to build up my shoulder strength and range of motion, but it's been a few years since I've done that. Maybe this summer I'll get back to working out on my rotational swing machine and see if I can build up my swing speed to what it was a few years ago. Thanks to the post Scott, I'm sure a lot of golfers will benefit from not doing these bad exercises shown.
