A great golf swing technique to improve your golf game with power, flexibility, and consistency is to increase the reps, or repetitions, during your routine workout exercise. A great method to incorporate into your fitness program is using the RIP, or Rest Interval Performance, Fitness. In any activity that we perform, whether work, sports, or exercise, rest periods have been proven to be an important component to the person’s overall performance and health. Even when an athlete is training to run long distances, the best training technique is to run-and-walk until the runner can reach their training distance. This same approach can be applied to your normal exercise routine.
I use the RIP Fitness as part of my CASPER Workout Program that includes performing 100 sit-ups each day. Herschel Walker used sit-ups as a main component in his workout to achieve The All-American status and win The Heisman Trophy. The RIP Fitness that I use is where I perform 5 sets of 10 sit-up reps in the morning and again in the evening. Between the 5 sets of 10 sit-ups, I have a 10 to 15 count rest period before I continue to the next set of sit-up reps. A great counting method is your breaths, count your breaths during your rest period. This provides me with the ability to build my abdominal muscles, which is essential to my golf game by maintaining a strong core in order to prevent back injuries.
The CASPER Workout Program
I typically perform the twelve (12) exercise elements in my CASPER Workout Program four times per week, but I perform five of the CASPER Workout Program elements every day as part of my golf swing workout. These five golf swing workout elements consist of: Sit-ups, Abdominal Wheel, Stocking the Shelves using a 15-pound Medicine Ball, and an 80-pound Punching bag workout, and a three-mile bike ride. Strengthening the abdominal muscles is critical to my golf swing and is a predominant part of my daily golf swing workout routine. I don’t perform my golf swing workout before I play golf, however. I just perform my GOLFER Q-Yoga routine to flex and help lubricate my joints.
The abdominal muscles are critical to provide power and speed in my golf swing, but even more essential to prevent injuries to my lower back. Abdominal muscles are important to prevent lower back pain and injuries that are common among golfers.
NOTE: A great theory for your back is the McKenzie Method that I learned while attending Kinesiology school. Use the link to learn more about this method.
GPS Gear for Power and Speed Golf Swing Sequence
I depend on my abdominal muscles to provide the power I need to Gear up for my golf swing sequence. This is where I Syncing/Presetting my left wrist and right elbow (I’m right-handed) with my shoulders, much like how gears on a ten-speed bicycle functions. The power I’m generating through my elbows turning with my shoulders maximizes both Power and Speed, clubhead speed. Based on the same principles of how the gears on the ten-speed are arranged.
The golfer can use their elbow to coil the shoulders and abdominal muscle in the takeaway to create power than in the downswing the golfer can naturally reverse the gears, This allows the shoulders to uncoil to turn the golfer’s elbows to create clubhead speed. Anyone who has compared the single-speed bicycle to that of the ten-speed realizes the advantages the ten-speed has over the single speed bicycle. There’s simply no comparison.
The single-speed bicycle-type golf swing is how some amateur golfers are using to set up their golf swings. They are using the single-speed bicycle approach, where it is the middle of the road, not creating a significant amount of power nor speed. They aren’t properly engaging their elbows with their shoulders to maximize their potential.
David Duval and Ken Duke Golf Swing
Syncing/Presetting the wrists is exactly what David Duval, Ken Duke, and Sir Nick Faldo demonstrated in each of their golf swings on Golf Channel, and Syncing the golfer’s elbow is the tip that Arnold Palmer gave President Eisenhower, particularly concerning the President’s right elbow. The GPS (Gear Preset and Sync) golf swing sequence allows the golfer to engage their abdominal muscles directly for more power, speed, and distance.
If you want the benefit of stronger abdominal muscles using the RIP Fitness APP, this will give you the ability for higher reps without experiencing fatigue or exhaustion. Even when you are working outside, especially during the summer period, taking breaks is important. I usually take a ten-minute break every hour while working on my farm. You’ll actually accomplish more work by using this method. I depend on the RIP Fitness APP for working on my farm and for my golf game.

Operation DOG TAG
Sports, such as golf, along with fitness and an exercise regimen that includes yoga, has been proven to be a great Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for trauma victims. Veterans and those who have experienced a traumatic situation where the mind has been traumatized and disrupted can use golf and yoga to help re-establish connection and pathways in the brain. Golf also provides an excellent opportunity for trauma victims to reconnect in a social setting to develop a dialogue without the pressures of clinical visits.

Time-lapse photography that I reviewed during my Kinesiology Xerox Box Golf Research Project compared the golf swing vs. baseball swing and how similar the Sync/Preset wrist action in the golf swing was to the baseball swing sequence.
Here’s the QUESTION: How many times standing in the batter’s box did you think about your golf swing mechanics, techniques, or elements. Your were only focused on the pitch. Why not use the same Outlier technique in golf.
Sir Nick Faldo demonstration of the Preset Golf Swing Technique
One of Sir Nick Faldo’s first golf swing fundamentals that he learned as demonstrated in this YouTube video entitled The Preset golf swing technique. Nick Faldo discussed the WHAT, but didn’t explained the HOW in his YouTube video.
The Sync/Preset Elements in The ESPY Golf Swing Coach explains how to setup the classic golf swing maneuver to place the wrists into the key Lock Position. This was the same golf swing technique used by David Duval during an interview with Charlie Rymer on Golf Channel. These two Videos are probably two of the best Videos to discuss the wrist action in the golf swing.
