Ep. 3 | The Golf Heroic Mission
The Golf Heroic Podcast https://www.golfheroic.comFacebookInstagramMore Podcast Episodes HereSmall-ish deep dive into Coach Brandon's belief in fitness and Golf Heroic's Mission. Empowering Golfers with the ability to realize true athleticism. Golf Heroic's Mission Statement; To create athletic golfers and empower their game by optimizing their physical and mental performance on and off the course, reducing injury risk and building a community of like-minded individuals through education and science-backed, performance-driven, goal orientated fitness.The quote that sums up Coach Brandon's training methodology; "Don't allow your goals to be superficial. Think Deeply about your motivations, and pursue them in ways that elevate your performance. Accept what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is essentially your own, and apply it to your workout". The quote from Coach Kate; "You don't throw bricks into a field hoping to build a house". This quote highlights how random workouts are not the best program for you and won't give you the results you want. The vision for Golf Heroic came from the idea that everyone wants something a bit different. We all have different goals therefore a one size fits all program won't work. There are lots of programs out there, but what's lacking is the specificity for golf. Coach Brandon writes amazing programs based on a range of different goals. He also takes a small group of clients to work one-on-one creating personalized programs for each client. Check out how he balances the development of a golfer while still getting you fit and helping you achieve your fitness goals! https://www.golfheroic.com/

Connect with Golf Heroic!https://www.golfheroic.comFacebookInstagramMore Podcast Episodes HereCheck Out the Free Golf Heroic Webinar!Is Crossfit Goof For Golf?Have you been looking at Crossfit as a good athletic training program to elevate your golf game?Have you done Crossfit for years and now you want to elevate your golf game, and you're wondering if your Crossfit workouts will help create the strength and conditioning you want to support your golf game?Coach Brandon spent years competing, training and coaching in Crossfit.Crossfit Methodology explained from Crossfit HQ.To state that one methodology is good for everything is really dependant on how you're training in that methodology. You can train in the best possible movement patterns but if your training program is poor or if your coach lacks some understanding in how to train you to move, you might not be doing yourself any benefits. The training program you bring into your life needs to take into consideration what your end goals are.Crossfit can be good for golf, as Coach Brandon says, it depends. There needs to be parameters around how you approach the training, but the problem lives with the common thread in Crossfit training that promotes high intensity above all.So what are the most important things for golfers to train to ensure they are elevating their game and improving their overall health?Most importantly, consistency will make the most improvements in your life and your golf game.Secondly, there needs to be balance in your training.

The sport of golf is focused on short bursts of energy, the golf swing is a power based movement that need to have strong fast twitch muscles to give you strength and distance. So your training program doesn't need to be solely focused on developing fast twitch muscle fibers, in fact, as Coach Brandon mentions, you need to develop all things in your fitness, the balance he brings up multiple times in this discussion. However, Crossfit spends it's time and efforts, based on it's methodology, developing slow twitch muscle fiber and endurance in it's athletes.But, do you love the Crossfit moments and enjoy that type of workout? Consistency is the MOST important piece in helping you become the best athlete you can be.Coach Brandon writes an awesome program based on the movements you love about Crossfit called Links WOD.
