Getting after Stability Training with Kettlebells

My love affair with the Kettlebells only continues to grow.  They have quickly become my go to training device when I want to get my heart rate up and challenge my stability.  Seeing as how one of the biggest issues I have is proximal stability, the kettlebells attack this specific area.  In order to generate more speed in the golf swing, you must be able to stabilize and decelerate in order to efficiently transfer energy at a more rapid rate.  This is where the kettlebells excel.

Give this sequence a try completing 8-10 reps of each exercise and doing 5 rounds.

  • Goblet Squats
  • Rows R/L
  • Cleans
  • High Pulls
  • Swings
  • Pull Unders

As you complete each motion, focus on feeling the ground and engaging your feet to transfer the energy.  I like to also place focus on my glutes every time I extend my hips and especially in the pushup position.

Happy Swinging!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
