  • What needs to happen in the world of golf for recreational players to start taking fitness more seriously as a way to improve without taking lessons, buying gear, etc. – Matt S.
  • How would you balance a regular weightlifting routine with a golf-specific routine? I enjoy regular weight training but also need some specific activation exercises for golf like hip stability and mobility. My thoughts would be 3 for regular weight training ( I m usually really basic and don’t spend more than 45 min in that routine) and 3 other days more golf-specific – Bradford
  • I would love to hear you break down the most common/dangerous bad advice you hear people give. – Aaron
  • What would you consider strong lifts for a golfer? – Adam
