This book is excellent & has the most up to date exercise techniques for golfers. The DVD is also very helpful so you can actually see the exercises being done.

A comprehensive tool for building the physical part of your game. The "golf-specific exercises on the DVD are very helpful. All in all, quite a bargain.

Note that the reviews listed prior to June of 2007 are for a different book, one that is now out-of-print.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my 2nd purchase of this Book / DVD. I purchased it for my pro instructor who has new interest in fitness. This workout is great from so many aspects of golf fitness. It is separated into sections targeting areas like, shoulder cuff, core, power enhancement, etc. As are result, each workout can be tailored to target areas and time allotted. I wish they had more books and DVD's available!
