This book provides a revolutionary new perspective on strength training for golfers. For years, the importance of strength training for golfers was dismissed as being, at best, an unimportant consideration in improving the golfer's game. But now that more and more golfers have turned to strength training to augment their game with outstanding results, we now know that proper strength training is an absolutely critical factor in improving not only the golfer's overall levels of health and fitness, but in dramatically improving his or her game as well. In The Max Golf Workout, John Little, creator of Max Contraction Training and the author of several popular books on weight training and fitness, offers a workout and training schedule specific to the unique fitness needs of the golfer. The result of a successful ten-year study, the Max Contraction exercises included in this book specifically target the muscles used in the golf swing to help increase strength, flexibility, and muscle endurance, and add, on average, up to twenty additional yards of distance off the tee. - Back cover.
