No more low back pain
Far too many golfers put up with debilitating low back pain, or "bad" hips. It seems that these pain syndromes have been accepted as a "part of the game". With smart exercise selection, and a heavy dose of core training complemented by hip/upper back mobility work this should not and WILL not be the case. Take your golf game to the next level and train with MBSC!

Golf requires a very large range of motion at the hips and shoulder complex. If you don't have enough core strength to resist motion you will CREATE motion at your lower back and that leads to pain and future injury! **

Con: Tempo Run 15/30

Tempo Runs: 10x15s/30s Find 70-80 yards of space (At MBSC we only have ~35 yards, so we have clients run up and back). If you don't have turf to run on a treadmill is a great option. Tempo runs aren't meant to be all out. Instead run at a clip that is faster than a jog, but slower than an all out sprint, say 75% of a sprint. Run for 15s, rest for 30 & repeat as prescribed. Feel free to do this on the bike, ski erg, rower, etc.
