3 TRX Exercises That Will Help Golfers Increase Driving Distance
The TRX Suspension Trainer is a piece of exercise equipment that our Tampa personal trainers utilize frequently at our facility. The TRX suspension trainer uses body weight and gravity to help our golf fitness clients increase rotational power, core stability, balance, coordination, and more. You’d find several suspension trainers at our South Tampa studio because they are beneficial to all our clients regardless of fitness level. Individuals in our South Tampa golf fitness program use them often to help lower their handicap and increase driving distance.
Several aspects of our golfers’ fitness that we focus on in our South Tampa golf fitness program are power production, coordination, core control, and rotational strength. There are numerous suspension trainer exercises you can do that can improve these fitness components. The following video highlights three specific TRX suspension trainer exercises that golfers should do to crush their next drive.
Single Leg Hinge to Lateral Lunge
Setup facing the TRX attachment point. Place your hands on the handles near your chest and there should be tension on the TRX straps. Perform a single leg hinge by pushing your hands to the floor and lifting your left leg. Hold the hinge position for a few seconds then return to single leg balance with your left knee raised to waist level. Hold the balance position for a few seconds then perform a lateral lunge with your left leg. Step back to single leg balance and repeat the sequence 5-10 times on each side.
This movement enhances glute strength, hip mobility, and core control.
Setup facing the TRX attachment point. Maintaining a full body plank, extend your arms fully and walk feet towards the attachment point. Row/pull hands towards your armpits while rotating your elbows to the ground, fists to the ceiling. Let your hands return to the starting position, extended in front of your chest, complete 5-10 repetitions.
This movement enhances lat strength, shoulder mobility, and scapular control.
Side Facing Rotational Rows
Setup in a split stance, side facing position to the TRX attachment point. Keeping the straps taut, position hands in the center of your chest and feet where muscle tension is created on the lateral lines of your body. Maintaining a full body plank, allow your upper body to rotate towards the attachment point while your arms extend fully. Row/pull hands towards your chest, rotating your upper body back to the side facing position. Complete 5-10 repetitions facing each direction.
This movement enhances rotational strength and disassociation.
These movements enhance multi-joint mobility, core control, and rotational power. TRX straps may need to be adjusted between exercises to optimize the movements.
