Training for Power and Endurance made Simple!

 

Are you sweating out forty-five minutes of slow to moderate effort cardio training 3-5 times a week? If you are hoping to increase your golf power, that’s a mistake. Here’s what you should do instead.

The Tortoise and the Hare

Despite golf’s long reputation as a leisure activity, golf is actually a powersport.  Scientific studies indicate that peak muscle activation during a golf swing is equivalent to sports such as football, hockey and martial arts.  Your golf swing is a high intensity, short duration event which must be repeated many times (hopefully not too many times) over a four to five hour round.  Using traditional Long Slow Distance (LSD) cardio training will actuallysedate your central nervous system, slowing you down and decreasing your power output.  There is an old adage in the sports conditioning field “Train slow, be slow”.  Put it this way, if a tortoise and a hare played golf, the tortoise would always miss the cut.

The Right Frame of Mind

How do you problem solve out on the course?  Are your thought patterns completely logical, or are you more creative and intuitive?  Research shows that traditional LSD training stimulates the logical, linear side of the brain.  Golfers face too many variables to be stuck solely in that mode of operation.  Creative problem solving is essential to playing to your full potential.

Pick Up the Pace

The optimal method of golf cardio conditioning should match the energy systems needed for our obsession… I mean sport.  Golf requires power endurance.  Slow and steady may prepare you for the local 5K, but it won’t do much to increase your drive or lower your handicap.  Instead of LSD, useHigh Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).  After a moderate warm up, perform short bursts of fast paced effort alternated with slower “rest/recovery” periods.

Grip It and HIIT It

HIIT can be performed on solid ground (running), on most cardio machines (treadmill, elliptical, bike, etc), or even in a pool.  Basic guidelines follow:

How do you know which foods you should be eating before and during your round to help maintain energy and focus?  Usually, trainers will recommend a combination of carbs, protein, and fats. However, everybody is different, so I recommend you try out different foods that fit into these three groups on a non-competitive day and see how you feel and how your body reacts.  Once you’ve found what works for you, you can eat before the round, knowing you’ll have plenty of energy and enough concentration to finish all 18 holes at maximum performance!

Thanks to Coach Stephen of Renegade Golf Training for this informative and important information!

 

Does eating before and during your round affect your score?

“For better or for worse, what you cram down your pie-hole will affect your golf game and your handicap.”

That’s a direct quote and the opening statement that I made to a group of golf instructors at a seminar last winter.

Some of the instructors were familiar with my work, and knew what to expect from me.

Others may have been taken aback by my bluntness, and vocabulary.

Still others laughed.

But this is no laughing matter.  At least not if your goal is peak performance on the course.

So let’s jump right in…

What To Eat Before A Round Of Golf

The goal of the Pre Round meal is to provide a slow and sufficient energy release that lasts for the next couple of hours as well as to provide great mental concentration.

Eat lightly in the two hours leading up to tee time. Food in your digestive system diverts blood away from your brain and muscles, affecting concentration and physical performance. A meal approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours prior to play is ideal.

Eat  high-quality complex carbohydrates, keep protein and fat intakes moderate since these slow down digestion.

Eat slowly and chew well.

Drink pure water to be adequately hydrated. Try one to two glasses prior to tee time.

Never drastically alter your normal eating patterns prior to competition. Favorite foods may often give you a psychological edge.
