Strong Low Back Program
Research has found that low back pain is often due to weak musculature
in the lumbar region. At Studio 30 we use the MedX EXL low back machine,
which utilizes a patented restraint system for the legs and hips, allowing
isolation of the lumbar muscles. The use of MedX low back machines have
been extremely successful in helping people strengthen the low back,
which has been shown to reduce pain.
If you want to hit a longer
ball off the tee, increasing your club head speed is crucial. Strength
training, combined with increased flexibility, has been found to be the
most effective combination. Our golf program uses the MedX rotary torso
and Proflex stretch machine -- the very same equipment used at the Butch
Harmon golf schools. These are the same pieces of equipment that were
used in the PGA Tour fitness vans.
