So I've been doing a lot of ab exercises and a lot of chest and arm exercises to get ready for golf. I've also done a few leg exercises as well which along with my ab exercises have seemed to help with my balance and my swing. I was wondering if anybody could give me any tips on things that could help my golf game workout wise

I played college golf until illness took me out. I am working with a trainer 2x a week now to get resdy for golf this spring. Core is huge. Also, for golf you want to have a lot of flexibility. Increase ROM, then the larger your swing arch, and the further your shoulder turn, you create more torque and a greater moment of inertia once you make your transition, leading to faster club head speeds and longer drives. Having stability in your core allows you to maintain the correct spine angle through impact, in order to produce a lag. Static stretching with a partner is great for flexibility, or you can do it on your own. Doing workouts with your weight more on your toes and balls of your feet helps with ballance. Also, try doing some workouts while at the address position. Grab a MB, take your stance as if you're holding a club, then bring the medicine ball back and through, throwing it down on the ground or against a wall. Try to do as much with your dominant hand as you do with the other. Take swings right handed and then left handed. Muscular balance is key to a good golf swing. You can search exercises by muscle group- core, back, shoulders, wrist extensors, glutes, gastrocnemius, hamstrings. Or by equipment, Medicine Ball, Stability Ball and resistance bands provide a plethora of golf specific exercises. Hope this helps!
