A strength-training drill that has the golfer moving a dumbbell through the motion of the golf swing, using the lead hand.<p>A good <a href="https://www.thoughtco.com/strengthen-your-hip-abductor-1563407" data-inlink="nNdeRbGYa0EB1k8H1BB_tA&#61;&#61;" data-component="link" data-source="inlineLink" data-type="internalLink" data-ordinal="1">weight shift</a> is important in the golf swing. One way to help improve your weight shift is to work on strengthening your hip abductor muscles. This can lead to a much better hip rotation during the swing.</p><p>Similar to the Backswing Drill with Dumbbell listed above, this one uses the resistance provided by a heavy object - the medicine ball - to build up the muscles involved in the golf swing.</p><p>The core rotational muscles are the main muscles that need to be strengthened if the goal is to add swing speed and distance.

Strengthening it is a great way to guard against injury. &#34;Openers&#34; is a stretch for the lower back that can help with flexibility and strength in that area.</p>Another option for working on strengthening the lower back and adding flexibility.The &#34;Golf Wrist-Cock Exercise&#34; targets, of course, the wrists, and the wrists play important roles in the swing: controlling the club through impact, and adding power.<p>A Swiss ball, or fitness ball, can provide great variety to one&#39;s workout. The Russian Twist is a staple of core exercises, and this one is done <a data-inlink="yek0xlzP_uKcx6qmrqu5Zw&#61;&#61;" href="https://www.thoughtco.com/improve-core-strength-1563384" data-component="link" data-source="inlineLink" data-type="internalLink" data-ordinal="1">on a Swiss ball</a>.</p><p>Like the very first golf exercise listed up above, this one utilizes fitness tubing, the elastic bands that provide resistance. Golfers can work their core muscles with the Tubing Side Rotation.</p>The Single Cone Leg Reach is an exercise that can help golfers develop their balance, and balance is very important in the golf swing.Here&#39;s another drill using fitness tubing. The title says it all: This exercise works one arm at a time, and targets the part of the golf swing just prior to impact. Golfers can add strength and - maybe - yards with this drill.
