    What is your favourite golf specific gym exercise?

    Hi! I have just joined the forum here but I have been a 'reader' for a while. My name is Matt, I live in Essex and I am a fitness professional with a golf fitness specialist credential. I have been training with amateur and pro golfers for several years. I now deliver golf specific fitness programmes to golfers all over the UK as well as performing 1:1 sessions in Chelmsford, Essex.

    I'd love to discuss all things exercise and nutrition so I thought I would kick it off with my favourite question to golfers...

    What is your favourite golf specific gym exercise?

    Mine is the BOSU / Gym ball / balance disk set up to back swing. The control, posture and balance you can enhance is worth getting excited about!

    Hmm, exercise. Golf, and exercise. No.

    I run, and cycle, but not for golf. Just for general fitness. Golf is a hobby, it's for fun.

    I like the 6 inch lift as I pick my ball out of the hole.
