Overview
The isometric golf swing drill creates a dynamic impact. It works the core, arms, and shoulders. Isometric means to hold an angle, instead of using movement.

Golf fitness is now considered crucial amongst all tour pros. Golf fitness is something you can do at home, so purchase a yoga mat, unfurl it in your front room, home office, or bedroom, and start doing some golf-specific fitness workouts.

Getting golf fit is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your golf game. And hey, the side effects aren’t bad either: live longer, increase the quality of life, and release loads of happy endorphins into your bloodstream, gain muscle and flexibility, reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes, strengthen your bones and muscles, prevent falls (falls are the leading cause of death, injury and hospital admissions among the elderly), reduce your risk of some cancers.
