I have worked out off and on for many years with weights. I stopped my routine and dutifully followed the book. I worked out once a week, doing the exercises as outlined. After about 5 weeks, I didn't notice any appreciable increase in my strength or my driving distance. Yes, the amount of weight that I could lift using their static technique had increased quite a bit. However, the same thing happens when I lift weights normally. Anytime I start a new exercise, I am initially very bad at it and improve quickly to a plataeu.
On the book itself. I was really disappointed that the authors made their claims based on a study of 6 golfers. Just 6! That's hardly enough for any kind of reasonable statistics. Furthermore, they didn't use any kind of control group to verify that it wasn't simply a placebo effect. I would also have like to seen a control group to verify that the extra yardage wasn't caused by people simply trying harder because they were part of an experiment. I kept wondering if these people were practicing at the range more often because of this experiment.
Also, the exercises are hard to perform without a partner. They seem to work better if you have someone to put the weight into position for you. Also, I found that some exercises were hard to do with the equipment I had at home. It seemed like I was expending a fair amount of effort using other muscles just to hold my position. Sometimes, I didn't feel that the target muscles got exercised as much as they were supposed to be.Read more ›
The only flaw is the test subjects used were a poor sampling of golfers.
Most golfers who would be interested in buying this book are pretty good
players who would like to improve to the next level. But of the test subjects,
the handicaps ranged from 11-24.
That said, they all gained strength from the workout, and based on that
and the reasoning they employ in the book, it is sufficient to try this system out.
