GOLF EXERCISE TOOLBOX: Band Single Arm Bent Over Row

Muscles Stressed:

  • Lats

  • Posterior shoulder complex

  • Biceps

  • Obliques/Transverse Abdominus

How will it help you become a better golfer?

Well, it won't... specifically.

It will help you build resilience in your upper body, strengthening important muscles for your swing.

The upper body is a critical piece of developing clubhead speed.

That old phrase, "it's all in the hips," isn't all that true.

Who would have guessed...

Read the article below for more on the role that the upper body plays in developing clubhead speed...

How to incorporate it?

3-4 sets.

6-12 reps each side.

By the last rep of each set you should be feeling a sense of muscular fatigue.

If not, increase the band resistance or complete more reps.

If you can only complete < 6 reps, decrease the band resistance.

Feel free to add tempos as well.

Here's a couple you can try:

[1.] Pause at the top position for 3 seconds.

[2.] Lower the band for 3 seconds.

[3.] 3-3-3. Pull for 3 seconds, pause for 3 seconds, lower for 3 seconds.

The longer each rep takes, the higher difficulty the exercise will offer.

Add it to your toolbox!

Let's go low.
