At SCRATCH, we try to devote 50% of our training programs to the at-home exerciser.
I understand that many golfers out there enjoy the effeciency and cost effectiveness of working out at home.
If you are an at-home exerciser, having bands is a must!
They're versatile, inexpensive, and joint friendly.
Check out the article below for my full breakdown on bands as an exercise tool!
When Working Out At-Home...
It's important to understand two things:
[1.] It is tougher to promote strength adaptations.
By no means is it impossible!
But it's a little tougher dependent on the equipment available.
That being said, we have to get creative about placing novel and progressive loads on the body.
Grab a heavier band.
Grip the band lower to increase tension.
Hold two dumbbells instead of 1.
Hold the isometric for longer.
Complete slower reps.
Even if you work out at home, continue to find ways to load the body in novel and progressive ways!
[2.] Try to separate training time from other time.
For many, training can be an emotional outlet.
It represents time that we get to spend on ourselves.
When training at-home, be sure to find ways to emotionally separate yourself while training.
For me, during the onset of the pandemic in 2020 I found this to be very challenging.
I lived in a ~700 square foot apartment.
My work desk was always in sight.
It was hard to dissociate my training time from my work time which led to lower motivation and less effective workouts.
