Periodisation for Golf

Here's a short video of organising/Periodising your golf training.


When training for golf, we want Strength and Power. However, this is not necessarily our starting point when training. In order to develop strength and power optimally and safely, it's a good idea to have a good foundation of basic movement and conditioning. See below for an example of what this might look like.


In this example, over a period of 12-weeks, the emphasis starts with developing a base level of Hypertrophy and endurance. And then building on top strength and then power. It also involves moving from higher volume (more total reps) to higher intensity (more load per rep). This is a good approach, especially for those with relatively little training experience.
