I have missed a few days here and there, but I have stayed pretty true to the workout program.  I just finished my 29th day, which was a main workout day, meaning I was doing more weights than core and cardio.  The main workouts are getting tougher and tougher as they are incorporating more isolation movements with weights and the swiss ball. Needless to say, I am beat.  I only have 13 total more workouts to complete my 6 week program.  This has is/was definitely what I needed to get my motivation back to get back in shape.  Now that I am seeing results (on the course and physically), my motivation is only getting stronger.  I am not sure what I am going to do after my 6 weeks are up.  I am thinking I will keep the last few workouts as my staples for the gym and slowly increase the reps and weights.

I'm not trying to sound like an advertisement for www.GolfconditioningNow.com, but this had been way better than I expected.  In addition, having someone like Grant who I can ask questions, get motivation, and check in on me makes it better than trying to piece some type of workout from the internet and hoping that I am doing the exercised right and that they are exactly what I need for golf and most importantly me personally. I highly recommend this.

Finished!

I finished the workout over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was nervous at first because the exercises and workouts seemed a little easy, but they got more and more advanced as the weeks progressed.  As I said previously, by the end there were some really difficult exercises that incorporated the swiss ball and isolated specific muscles.

Without question, this was exactly what I needed to get back in the gym and I am going to keep this type of workout moving forward. Before starting with Grant, I was doing the old Monday=Chest, Tues=Back, Wed=Shoulders, etc routine.  In contrast, this program works the entire body on weight training days and had lots of core and cardio sprinkled in between.

I have always prided myself on being up to date on workouts, training methods, etc, but this workout also included many exercises that I have never done. Not only core exercises, but dumbbell movements as well.

If you're looking for a true golf training program, this is it.

    • If only there were decades of tournament data that could provide statistical clarity to the question. 
    • I have had lessons in the past. In addition to this ive read countless ideas on the swing by so many people and watched gold constantly. When i was good at golf, i had a swing where i attacked the ball very much from the inside and played with a strong draw. My grip was odd...the left hand pretty neutral but the right hand strong. The swing was very short and had a very fast tempo, not dissimilar to someone like Nicholas Thompson off the PGA tour. I got down to a 2 handicap at lowest, and usually a low 3 handicapper hovering around 2.5, 2.6 index. I wanted to get better as i never felt i hit the ball that well, so i sought out lessons and i saw the trackman numbers and such. We worked on getting the grip better, actually aligning to the target better (whereas before i would just kind of walk up to the ball, shuffle around a bit till i felt it was ok and hit), i started really focusing on things that i still think are good like alignment, routine etc. And the swing path became less inside out. For a while i played great, then i started getting steeper and steeper and hitting disgusting pull slices all day. THEN, it started getting to the point where, my mind wouldnt let me take the club away. I would do all kinds of crazy stuff like the club would bounce up and down and my takeaway totally frozen even though pros recommended trigger moves etc. Then because the game wasnt enjoyable because of the yipping, id start taking time off because i didnt want to go through with all of this and then, i started losing my flexibility, getting bigger etc. Now I just dont want to go because the only emotions i ever feel are frustration, resentment, annoyance, wanting it to be over after 10 mins and feeling like theres 4 more hours left etc. If you could take me back to a time where i did not yip, i would play the game again and absolutely love it, but its never ever coming back. Ive tried everything. It HURTS. Ive never been any good at ANYTHING else in my life. I put everything into golf from the age of 12 up to about 25. The last 10 years has just been too much for me. i just cant take it
    • So do you need the club that fills your stated clubs to hold greens (are you going to hit into the greens / all carry)? Or are you fine with some roll out? Hold greens > properly fitted hybrid ~19/20 degrees loft. Some rolll out ok / does not hit directly into a green > properly fitted 5 wood/~17-18 degrees loft. 
    • I would love to see Tiger start to use one of these  
    • First of all, nice job with getting a bit more on plane going back. The club isn’t going nearly as much to the inside which is good. I’d take screenshots of where you are at A2 and keep tracking that so you can be sure you are starting back on plane. Overall, you are trending the right way here! I don’t really think the head movement is anything to be focusing on. If anything, it is a symptom of the OTT move and not a cause. The more important thing to notice about the transition is the shoulder move and what exactly it is accomplishing and then working back from that a little bit to find the root cause. What I see is a shoulder move in transition that is a compensation for your pretty flat shoulder turn. Look at how flat your shoulders are at the top of the backswing and then look at how much steeper they get right after you start the transition. The answer to this might very well be what @iacas was suggesting by nudging you towards working on your torso turn in the early backswing. That should help get your shoulder turn to be a bit steeper. Before you start true downswing/transition thoughts or work: backswing, backswing, backswing.
