Overview
Learn how to do a TRX single leg squat, a great quad and glute exercise for improving strength and mobility. It also strengthens your hands, arms, and core.

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.

Steps

Step 1: Watch
Watch the video.

 

Step 2: TRX Band
Most gyms have a TRX strap (or buy your own for home use)

Step 3: Handles 
Bring handles to your sides.

Step 4: Left Leg
Put most of your weight onto your left leg, and raise your right foot slightly off the floor. Dorsiflex the foot up (point toes to the ceiling). Sit back (as if going to sit on a chair) until the extended right leg is parallel to the floor. Raise back up to the start position.

Step 5: Right Leg
Repeat step four on the right leg.

Step 6: Keep Score
The good news is that you can simulate competition during your golf fitness drills by keeping score. Do three sets of twelve reps. Keep a score of how many sets you did and how long it took you. Try to beat your best time.
