The Core Performance phenomenon continues - with this new book that combines the effectiveness of the author's revolutionary training system and the enormous popularity of golf. Mark Verstegen, who has trained hundreds of elite athletes here and abroad at his Athletes Performance Institutes, among them many PGA and LPGA golfers, now shares with every golfer the methods that have helped the pros develop their explosive power and strength. In Core Performance Golf, golfers will discover: a training program that is ideally suited to developing the golf swing because so much of the swing, like the Core Program itself, depends on rotation and movement; exercises designed to help them create more torque and balance, thus adding yards to drives and precision to shots; a conditioning and nutrition regimen that will build strength, power, and stamina, while reducing the risk of injuries and speeding recovery time; and sidebar quotes and tips from famous golfers the author has worked with.
Mark Verstegen, founder and president of Athletes Performance Institutes, has trained some of the biggest names in sports, including Green Jacket winners, Stanley Cup champions, Olympic gold medallists, and All-Stars.
