On the next all-new episode of Golf Fitness Academy
, co-hosts Dr. Greg Rose and Dave Phillips are joined by PGA Tour professional Jonathan Byrd and Randy Myers, Director of Fitness at the Sea Island Resort, Sea Island, Georgia. Randy guides Jonathan through one of his normal workout routines, focusing on power and weight training, to show viewers how they can properly workout in the gym before a round without harming their golf game.
Jonathan began working out in high school but didnâ€™t focus on golf-specific exercises until encountering problems when he was at Clemson. His muscles were tight and didnâ€™t have the flexibility necessary for playing a lot of golf which resulted in injuries which still occur today. This workout routine from Randy Myers demonstrates the importance of working together with fitness instructors and swing coaches to develop a program that builds muscle strength, endurance and flexibility but focuses on getting the body ready to play golf. The episode begins with a segment on Power, followed by Weight Training and, finally, a demonstration of the Power Plate machine.
