A “Superset” For Increased Power In The Golf Swing

We are always looking for increased power in the golf swing. Supersets are often used to add extra challenge to our workout as well as help in weight loss. This week I’d like to show a superset that helps build leg and core strength.

A superset is when you do 2 exercises back-to-back. Sometimes you have a little rest in-between the 2 exercises and other times you don’t. So what you may want to start with the rest method. In other words perform the first exercise for 30 seconds, rest 30 seconds and then perform the second exercise for 30 seconds. Continue in the manner for 4 rounds.

An alternative to this is to perform the first exercise for 30 seconds and immediately perform the second exercise for 30 seconds & then rest for 30 seconds. So the rest is between each superset vs. each exercise. Again perform 4 rounds.
Try the first option first and if it is to easy then go to the second option.

So this superset is a push-up followed by a jump squat. You can see the pictures below & I hope to have videos of my supersets completed soon. For the jump squat you want to squat down as shown then jump up as the arms go down and back (ignore the band around the knees).
So remember to perform in good form and follow one of the above options.
