Fast Twitch Workout (For Rotational Power)

Your favorite golfers don’t have those fast powerful swings by accident, they’re training for it! You’ll be building those same skills with this routine. This workout builds your large fast twitch muscle fibers while also training your neurologic system for better swings, speed and velocity on the golf course. 

Skeletal muscle is made up of bundles of individual muscle fibers. These  muscle fiber types can be broken down into two main types: slow twitch muscle fibers and fast twitch muscle fibers. Slow twitch muscle fibers burn energy at a steady continuous rate which allows you to maintain long, even energy bursts – think of a marathon. Fast twitch fibers allow you to perform short powerful movements such as – you guessed it – the golf swing. 

Training in ways that attune your brain and nervous system to fire muscles quickly and that train your fast twitch muscle fibers to respond with maximum output is key to a powerful golf swing and this workout does just that. Join 2022 IDEA World Fitness Leader of the Year award winner, Pete Holman, for this fun and challenging golf fitness workout. 

All you need for this workout is a resistance band and some space, so there’s no excuse for not taking your swings to the next level. As Pete likes to say, “Put on your game face and let’s get after it!”
