Golf Conditioning

Are you upset because the fall is here and that means the golf season is coming to an end?  Well, don’t be. Fall and winter are the best time to start training for next season, so use this time to dial in your golf conditioning.  Start by having a qualified professional assess your functional movement patterns to help identify deficiencies and weaknesses. From there, a program can be designed with your special needs in mind.  Remember, you should not be lifting weights like a body builder.  Rather, you should work on stability, balance, functional ranges of motion and power. If you stick to the program you will see results, and once you are moving more freely, your golf lessons will help you continue to shave strokes out on the golf course.

Try Interval training

For many people cardiovascular exercise means stepping onto a machine, selecting a program and going for at least 30 minutes.  Not only is this mind numbingly boring, but it is not an effective or efficient way to burn body fat. In fact, exercising this way does little to improve your cardiovascular fitness.  Instead of doing that, give interval training a try.  This can be done on any piece of equipment, but for this example we will use the treadmill (running).  To start, get on your treadmill (or go outside) and walk for a few minutes as a warm up.  Next, run as fast as you can for 15 -20 seconds.  The speed must be high enough to make you breath heavily.  When you can’t go any more slow down to walking speed until you catch your breath.  As soon as you are breathing easily, run again. Repeat this process 4 or 5 times.  If you do it the right way you should be pretty tired and sweat.  Finish the session with a few more minutes of light jogging or walking.  Do this once or twice per week, and soon you will see results.  You will start shedding pounds and you will be able to run fast and longer intervals.  Let me know how you do!

Trumbull Boot Campers Pull “The Weight Sled.”

In preparation for the In Home-Health and Fitness Boot Camp challenge, Chris Terenzio had his Trumbull boot campers pull the weight sled!  50 pounds pulled 30 yards in each direction (3 times for each camper) equalled burning quads and racing hearts.  ”I never imagined that I could love and hate an exercise at the same time” stated one camper.  The Trumbull participants are getting ready to wage friendly competition against their Stamford counterparts.  Stay tuned to see what happens next (pictures and video coming soon).
