Today’s guest is Matt Scott, a fitness instructor and the current Manager at Cottesmore Health Club in England.  We will be following Matt for the next few weeks as I think he has excellent stuff to contribute to your golf fitness, strength, and flexibility!

Matt is using a cable machine.  If you do not work out in a gym, purchase some rubber tubing, tie it to a door handle or clamp it in a door to get the same results.

Wood Chop.

Set the cable in a high position.  Extend the arms upward and pull down across the body to the opposite knee.  Keep the arms straight and have the first part of the motion work away from the body.  Do 2 sets of 10.

Reverse Wood Chop.

Set the cable in the low position.  Start at the knee and work upward to a high extended position over the opposite shoulder.  Again work the arms away from the body and keep both arms straight. 2 sets of 10.

Paloff Press.

With the cable set at about hip height,  extend the arms directly in front of you, holding the cable with both hands.  Pull the handle into your chest and extend out.  Do 2 sets of 10.

Circular Pull.

Starting by holding the cable in both hands and the arms extended toward the machine, pull the cable across the body while keeping the arms straight. Fast through and slowly back really works the core. 2 sets of 10.

Circular Pull with Pulse.

Same as the previous exercise, but after each set, stop with the arms fully extended straight out in front of you and pulse back and forth with a small motion where the hands are only moving about 12.”
