This week Kirk Adams shows us a few of his favorite horizontal pressing exercises that pair well with the hip dominant exercises he showed us last week.

For more, here’s Kirk’s detailed explanation of this week’s fitness routine from the Facebook group:

Today is part 4 of my How To Build A Workout series and we’re talking about another group of upper body exercises that we need to pick from when creating our program. They are upper body horizontal pressing exercises and I typically pair them with the lower body hip dominant exercises we talked about last week. These exercises are important for us to be able to use our upper body correctly in our swing, generate maximal club head speed, and maintain core stability while our arms are swinging the club.

3 of my favorite horizontal pressing exercises are the Pushup, the Dumbbell Press and the Half Kneeling Single Arm Press. When you’re building your workout, pick at least one of these exercises and do 2-4 sets of 6-10 reps. Try to vary the exercise that you choose at least every 3-4 weeks.

Give these exercises a try and let me know if you have any questions. I’ll be back in a later video breaking down how you can make each of them easier or harder. Next week, we’ll discuss another category of upper body exercises that should make up your workout program!
