More glute exercises for even more swing control

In yesterday’s email, I said these words, verbatim: 

When you swing a club, you generate power from your hips.   

Because your glutes are primarily responsible for movement at your hips, weak glutes compromise your skill during your swing. 

And it struck a bit of a nerve as I received a number of responses asking some version of this, “Other than squats, what else can I do to strengthen my glutes?” 

So today, we’re going to dig a little deeper with the help of Katie at 1stPhorm – that’s the nutrition and fitness behemoth headquartered here in St. Louis. 

Katie wrote an article awhile back that I bookmarked to share with the Crew in the future. 

Well, there’s no time like the present. 

And in typical 1stPhorm fashion, the title of the article is straight to the point… 

Glute Exercises For The Gym 

I do love their no-nonsense ways.   

So, if controlling your swing is something you’re interested in (and who isn’t?), check out that article. 

Oh…at the bottom, there is a sample workout for glute day. 

I have two schools of thought here: 

  1. We don’t recommend working on specific muscle groups for an entire workout. 
  2. If you want to jump into the deep end and challenge yourself, it looks like a summa byatch. 

Your arse would be sore for a week, but again, I do love a good challenge. 

You’ve been warned.
