What is Golf-Specific Training?
Golf-specific training does NOT necessarily mean every exercise has to mimic the swing. 80% of golf injuries are overuse-related. As golfers, we spend hours, days, and even years rotating through one movement, in one direction. The purpose of S&C is not to increase your risk of injury.
A well-structured training program must first be Species-Specific before Sports-Specific. We must first get you to be able to move your body the way our bodies are intended to move. Then we can proceed to make you stronger, to allow for even greater rate of force development later on. This is why we employ an integrated training approach.
How is OGP’s training any different?
At OGP, our goal is to unleash your full potential, we are here to work with you to fundamentally change what you can physically do.
Our approach is based on Science.
Our trainers employ an integrated training approach to improve all components necessary for an athlete to perform at the highest level and prevent injury by focusing on developing functional strength and neuromuscular efficiency.
How can OGP’s training help prevent injuries?
Despite popular image of golf as a “casual” sport, it is one of the higher injury-producing sports played worldwide at both amateur and professional levels. A golf swing is a highly complex movement, it occurs in multiple planes of motion in our entire human movement system. Traditional strength and conditioning exercises occur in a single plane with primary focus on concentric force production. Our trainers, whilst working together with our highly experienced golf professionals, will help you develop a multiplanar (or multidirectional) training program to increase golf performance, reduce the risk of injury and keep you playing golf safer and longer.
