    Would you consider “steam engines” as a good alternative for the “bicycle” exercise?

      From Mark:

      yes, steam engines are a good alternative if you can’t get on the ground and if you work on the rotation through the core and spine. Make sure you aren’t “faking it” by just rotating with your arms/elbows.

        So what are steam engines

          Standing up, right knee to left elbow meeting at belly button height, left knee to right elbow, keep repeating. They are basically bicycles standing up.

    What is Golfers RX opinion about swimming, relative to a constructive workout for the golf swing?

    • Mark Williamson December 6, 2018 at 1:49 pm #

      Swimming is one of the best workouts you can do for golf, especially freestyle focusing on hip rotation.

    I did Hathaway Yoga for 20 years – this year it went off the air and I am lost without it! Any suggestions for a program youknow of? Lilias Folen!

    Mark – I will be 70 next week and have a bad back (which negated my golf for the whole 2017 season), for which I am going to physio again right now. Would you recommend that I do these exercises, once I am finished physio, in preparation for the 2019 golf season (which starts here in April)? (I don’t want to do anything that might hurt me more or make my recovery longer).

    Dear Mr YOGI,These four exercises are fine ,though not that easy to perform for the 85 years old man I have become (But I still play to a handicap of 7).I strengthen my core by throwing heavy MEDICINE BALLS(4 kgs and 5 kgs ) and by pulling several rubber bands attached to the top of a door down to my knees .Are these sufficiently effective exercises ?
    Please show more CORE strengthening drills. Is the speed at which you perform them a decisive factor or not?
