In our previous blog, we talked a bit about our golf workout programs. Unlike traditional fitness training, golf-specific fitness training is a process. A solid program is developmental -- a targeted training program to help a golfer get from where she or he is to where they want to be. Let's dig a little deeper into how we approach exercise program design and how our athletes feel as a result of our process.

Adrian Reed came to the Joey D Golf Sports Training Center about three months ago with some back issues, which kept him from playing his best golf. Coach Travis Lampton was quickly able to recognize that Adrian had some postural issues that were impacting his game. And this was just the beginning.

We're really lucky to be living down here in Florida. As long as it's not raining, it's a golf day. Of course, we realize that everyone isn't this lucky. In many parts of the country, the golf season may be as short as six or seven months. We get asked all the time about how someone's workout should change from the fall to the winter to the spring and into summer. It's a great question because there are definitely things that you want to be doing in the off-season or pre-season that you might not want to be doing once you're out playing 18 on a regular basis.

We've reached early February, which means that if you made any New Year's resolutions a few weeks ago, there's a good chance that you've already broken them. Don't worry! Most folks have trouble sticking to their resolutions. If one of your resolutions was to become a better golfer, though, you're in luck. It might not have been as easy as you thought to go cold turkey on those lottery scratch tickets, but adding a few yards to your tee shot or increasing your accuracy or consistency with your irons is still very much in the cards for 2021.

We're all pretty good at reading facial expressions. We know when someone is happy and we know when someone is sad or upset. But here at the Joey D Golf Sports Training Center, we know a very unique facial expression. And we see it every time someone comes into the facility for the first time. They may have read our blogs and books and they may have seen Coach Joey D or Coach K-Wayne Tullier on TV, but nothing prepares them for those first initial steps onto the training floor. Everyone gets that same look on their face. It's a look that says: "Whoa! This is much bigger and much cooler than I ever expected!"

To paraphrase Jim Nantz, 2020 has been a year unlike any other. And, generally, not in a good way. While we could go point-by-point through everything that was wrong with the past year, we'd rather take this holiday season to look back at all the things that went right in 2020. Here's a dozen things we're thankful for...

If you've read any of our blogs or eBooks or hung out with any of our coaches for more than 30 seconds, you're probably familiar with one of our primary philosophies: you can only swing the club as well as your body will allow you to. Usually, when we say this, we're referring to the bones, muscles, and nervous system that make up the human body. When they've been optimized to play the game of golf, they'll allow you to swing the club pretty efficiently.

Golf Balance Drills: Fix Your Body, Fix Your Swing

People don't think enough about balance. Most folks assume that once, as toddlers, they're able to successfully stand on two feet and start to walk, they've mastered balance and don't have to think much about it from that point on. Unfortunately, balance is the least understood component of sports performance. And no sport will expose your inability to maintain your sense of balance more quickly or more profoundly than golf. That's the bad news.

If you've been reading our blogs and eBooks for any length of time, you know that when it comes to training our players we take a Big Picture look at how the body factors into the golf swing. And it doesn't matter if that player just won $15 million and the FedEx Cup or if he just won $80 bucks and his weekly foursome. If you're looking to play your best, you have to train your entire body to be successful. But while a lot of players may do some quality upper-body training and lower-body training, many may be sabotaging their game by not focusing enough -- or correctly -- on the thing that ties the upper-body and lower-body together: the core.
