Complete 12-Week Golf Workout Program for this Winter

On this page
Louis Pringle

Winter is often a frustrating season for golfers as for many of us, it means putting away your clubs until spring comes around and the weather is nice enough for courses and ranges to open.

Just like you, we understand how hard this time of the year can be, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t improve while you’re away from the course. The right golf clubs and a good amount of practice can lead to good results on the course, but a healthy and strong body can help you achieve results that you would have never thought possible before.

At Golf Avenue, we aim to make the sport as accessible as possible to golfers everywhere and we couldn’t think of a better way to do so than to offer you access to an entirely FREE complete workout program to help you take your game to the next level when spring comes around.

This program is designed to span over a 12-week period, perfect for golfers looking to keep active during those winter months, especially for the golfers who can’t head to the course during that period of the year.

How did we create this winter workout program?

To help us with the creation of this program, we reached out to Coach Guillaume Smith from BKYRD, a certified personal trainer who’s worked with high-caliber athletes for years, and notably, golfers who were seeking to improve their flexibility and their power on the course.

We came to Guillaume with a clear desire to build a workout program, specifically designed to help golfers improve their performance during the winter months, a period when most golfers in North America can’t head to the golf course.

Our goal with this program is to provide golfers of all levels with a program that would allow them to develop better flexibility and a wide range of motion, which in turn will produce better strikes when you’re out on the course.

Having worked with golfers in the past, Guillaume knew exactly what we were looking for and knew exactly how to create the perfect guide for golfers to practice in the winter months, which, for most of us, happens to be the off-season. Here’s what he had to say about this program:

“This strength training program has been built to make you improve your strength, stability, and power. The goal here was to implement a progression across 3 phases where you can then translate this power back onto the course. Without proper mobility, power is useless, you can't get in the ranges of motion you need to generate the necessary power, so we also added a mobility routine made to increase primarily your thoracic spine (the middle part) and your hips to increase range in your flexors.

Extra conditioning on your end could be great for improving recovery, aerobic capacity, and overall health. This many activities such as steady state runs, bike spins, cross-country skiing, or swimming. Something that will elevate your heart rate, but not something too intense that inhibits your ability to keep that exact pace for at least one hour.”

How to navigate this training program?

When you look at your workout make sure you complete the whole section. Single Movement, Supersets, and Giant sets are included in this program. The number followed by the Letter means there is more than one movement to a section.

In other words, on Accumulation Day B, you have three exercises labeled under A. This means that these three exercises need to be completed as a set. This means that when you’ve completed the necessary reps from A1, you move on to A2, then to A3, and you repeat the sequence until you’ve completed the required number of supersets. You will alternate between one and the other until all sets prescribed are completed.

Example of how to navigate this program:

Accumulation Day B
  • A1 – Landmine Squat 3x 12-15
  • A2 – KB Golf Swing 3x 2repsx20secs
  • A3 – Birdog Row Single arm 3x 12-15 on each side
In this case, A1 -> A2 -> A3 need to be performed one after another to complete a tri set. As indicated next to the exercice names in this example, you'll want to repeat the set three times over (3x).

For A1, you need the repeat a Landmine Squat 12 to 15 times. Then you move on to A2.

For A2, you perform a Kettlebell Swing motion over 2 different 20-second series. Following the second series of your set, move on to A3.

For A3, complete the Bird Row Single Arm move 12 to 15 times over with each one of your arms. If you have completed the A1 -> A2 -> A3 sequence three times over, you're done with the A block for Day B of the Accumulation Phase.

Each exercise from the main program will include a video demonstration from Guillaume to help you better understand the movements.

Frequently Asked Questions and Considerations

Before we get into the thick of things, we imagine that you probably have some questions or even some doubts about what this program entails. Fortunately, for you, Guillaume provides a series of Q&A’s, as well as some considerations to keep in mind before getting into this program.

What equipment do I need with me to complete this program?

The best option is to head to the gym, everything you will need in this program will be there. This is not a training minimalistic program, but the selections of exercises are still simple to complete at home if you have most of the basic equipment.

Here a short list of the types of equipment you'll need to complete this program:

  • Kettlebells - 2 to 3
  • Dumbbells - 2 to 3
  • Barbell
  • Swiss Ball
  • Landmine Attachment
  • Weight plates
  • Bench

Unless you have access to all the equipment listed above at home, you'll most likely need to head to the gym. But if you can't make it to the gym, for any reason, we also provide you with alternatives to adjust the program if you want to perform it from home. Here a list of "alternatives" you can use at home.

Equipment alternatives if you want to workout at home:

  • For most exercises, you can replace the kettlebells or dumbbells with any weighted object that you'll be able to hold in your hands.
  • Can't replace the barbell properly, so we recommend that you simply perform the moves without the barbell when possible.
  • For the Swiss Ball, you can typically use a chair or a piece of furniture that you'll be able to put your back against.
  • Landmine attachments will most likely be hard to secure at home. If you have a barbell at home, simply find a spot in the ground where you'll be able to anchor it.
  • The alternatives for the bench are the same as the Swiss ball. Any sort of chair or low furniture on which you can sit or lay will do just as well.

How to differentiate the strain level between Pain vs Soreness?

Training will challenge you, muscles may ache, and progress is made with difficult tasks. It's important to not confuse soreness with pain. If any movement gives you any sort of BAD type of pain. STOP doing that exercise.

What should my training frequency be with this program?

To be as successful as possible you will need to stay consistent with this training program. Increase the load you use each cycle (4 weeks per cycle). If you fall off the wagon for 1 week, don't worry, restart where you stopped and try to keep the good habits of strength training twice a week.

Medical Disclaimer

Do not start this fitness program if your physician or healthcare provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain, or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.

No assurance can be given that the advice contained in this program will ensure the results you are looking for.

If you engage in this exercise or exercise program, you agree that you do so at your own risk, are voluntarily participating in these activities, assume all risk of injury to yourself, and agree to release and discharge GOLF AVENUE from any and all claims.

Now that we’ve covered your questions and addressed any cautions, it’s time to get into the real deal! Just like any physical activity where a lot of exertion is required, we’ll start off progressively with a short warm-up, specifically designed to help your body prepare for the exercises you’re about to do.


Accumulation Phase (Weeks 1-2-3-4)

This workout program spans three phases over 12 weeks. These three phases are accumulation, intensification, and realization. Each phase is designed to be performed over 4 weeks, and each phase offers two complete routines that you’ll be able to alternate between during those 4 weeks.

Let’s start with our first phase, Accumulation. This is the first phase of the program where we’re looking to acclimate your body to the movements that you’ll need to be able to perform in this program. This phase also serves to strengthen the muscles that you’ll need to rely on as progress through the subsequent phases.

To help you achieve all these objectives the number of reps and the variety of exercises will be on the higher side. This higher number of reps should help bring your body up to speed ahead of the second phase: Intensification.

Here’s a quick side-by-side look at Day A and Day B from the accumulation phase of the program. Feel free to screenshot this specific part of the program so that you can always have easy access to it.

Intensification Phase (Weeks 5-6-7-8)

Moving onto the second phase of this workout program, Intensification. Balancing out the Accumulation phase, the Intensification phase lowers the number of reps, generally, but increases the intensity. The goal here is to use heavier loads and have a variety of more technical exercises.

While the first phase was all about acclimating your body, this second phase is designed to help you strengthen your neurological capacities so that you’re able to access new functions in your body. Connecting your body and brain is key when it comes to your on-course performance.

Intensification Day A – Exercises Breakdown

A1 – Bulgarian Split Squat

The Bulgarian Split Squat is a highly effective lower body exercise that targets the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. Use the video below as a reference to execute it or read the complete description following.

What you’ll need:

  • Bench (or an elevated surface)
  • 2 dumbbells

How to do it:

    1. With two dumbbells of a weight of your choice in hand, stand with your back to a bench or elevated surface. Take a step forward with one foot, resting the top of your rear foot on the bench behind you.
    2. Ensure your front knee is directly above your ankle, creating a 90-degree angle.
    3. Lower your body by bending your front knee, allowing your rear knee to drop towards the floor. Keep your chest upright throughout the movement.
    4. Lower down until your front thigh is parallel to the ground, ensuring your knee extends above your toes. Your rear knee should hover just above the floor.
    5. Drive through your front heel, engaging your quadriceps and glutes to return to the starting position.
    6. On your last rep, hold the pose for 8 seconds at the bottom of the motion.
    7. Repeat the motion 6 to 8 times per leg and take 30 seconds break between each leg.
    8. Use a full 15-second break before moving on to the second move of the superset in A2.

Helpful tips to keep in mind:

A2 – KB Golf Swing 2.0

The Kettlebell (KB) Golf Swing 2.0 is another take (and what you could loosely call the evolution) of the KB Golf Swing in the Accumulation phase. Watch the video to learn how to adjust the motion for the Intensification phase or read the description for a full walkthrough.

What you’ll need:

  • Kettlebell

How to do it:

    1. While holding a kettlebell with both hands in an overhand grip, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes slightly turned out.
    2. Initiate the swing by driving your right foot to the ground and swinging the kettlebell to the left.
    3. Allow the kettlebell to swing naturally; your arms should be relaxed, and the power comes from the leg push and the heel turn.
    4. Be sure to fully turn into the swing by lifting the heel of the pushing foot off the ground and turning your hips in the direction where you’re swinging the kettlebell.
    5. As the kettlebell comes down, be sure to keep the momentum going by using your other leg to swing the kettlebell to the other side.
    6. Swing the kettlebell 8 to 10 times on both sides to complete the set.
    7. Take a 90-second break before returning to the move-in A1, if you have some supersets left.
    8. Complete 4 supersets to finish the A block.

Helpful tips to keep in mind:

What you’ll need:

  • Dumbbell (or kettlebell)
  • Slide (or smooth surface on which you can slide your foot)

How to do it:

    1. While holding a dumbbell with both hands in front of your chest, stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, and place a slider (or another smooth-surfaced flat object) under one foot.
    2. Slightly bend the knee of the leg standing on the slider (for better control) and keep the other leg straight.
    3. Lower your body into a squat position on the leg that is not on the slider. While lowering into the squat, extend out the leg with the slide to the side. Ensure the straight leg remains extended, toes pointing forward.
    4. Lower your body as far as comfortable while maintaining good form, keeping your back straight and chest up.
    5. Push through the heel of the bent leg, sliding the foot back to the starting position, when you were standing.
    6. Repeat the motion 10 to 15 times on each leg.
    7. When you’re done with the reps from both legs, head to the move in B2.

B2 – Half Knee Band Chop Low to High

The Half Knee Band Chop Low to High is a functional exercise that engages your core and works on rotational strength. The movement should help improve your capacity to hit through the ball at impact.

What you’ll need:

  • Resistance band

How to do it:

    1. Begin in a half-kneeling position, with one knee on the ground and the other foot forward, creating a 90-degree angle at the front knee. Anchor a resistance band low and to the side of your kneeled leg.
    2. Grasp the resistance band with both hands, ensuring a firm grip, with both arms extended away from you. Your hands should be together at the start, and you should start the motion as close as possible to the anchor point while always applying a little resistance to the band.
    3. Initiate the movement by rotating your torso, pulling the band diagonally across your body from low on one side to high on the other. The movement should resemble a chopping motion.
    4. Execute the chop in a controlled and deliberate manner, emphasizing the engagement of the muscles involved. Avoid using momentum to complete the movement.
    5. Slowly reverse the movement, bringing the band back to the starting position to complete a rep. Maintain control and resist the band's pull.
    6. Repeat the motion 10 to 15 times on each side of the body.
    7. Once you’re done with both sides, head to the move in B3.

Warm-Up Routine

In terms of warm-up, you’ll want to complete a quick warm-up before every workout session. The goal is to raise the heart rate a bit and heat up your body a little. No need to go overboard with the effort and attempt a PR here. Take it easy to start off your workout.

Multiple options are available to you for this warm-up. Feel free to get on a cardio machine for 3 to 5 minutes (Ski, Bike, Row, Treadmill, StairMaster). Try alternating machines from session to session to maximize your body’s versatility (and it’ll help to keep you motivated!).

Once you’ve completed your short cardio warm-up, Guillaume has a few extra exercises that will help get your body prepared for the physical exertion that you’ll be doing. We’ll include a quick description for each exercise listed below.

  • Single Leg Calf Raise to Knee
  • Airplane Hip Rotation Supported
  • Band W to Y
  • 90/90 Hip Washers
  • Seated Foam Roll Trunk Rotation
  • Foam Roll Thoracic Spine Extension

Single Leg Calf Raise to Knee

For this one, we’re looking to work on the legs first. So, here’s a quick rundown on how to complete it:

    1. Stand upright with good posture, engaging your core for stability.
    2. Lift one leg off the ground, keeping it straight or with a slight bend in the knee for comfort.
    3. Balance on the standing leg and rise onto your toes by lifting your heel as high as possible.
    4. As you reach the top position, also bring your lifted knee towards your chest, creating a flexion movement.
    5. Hold the top position briefly, ensuring a controlled movement.
    6. Lower your heel back down, returning to the starting position.
    7. Repeat the movement 10 to 15 times on one leg before switching to the other.

Airplane Hip Rotation Supported

This second exercise aims to activate your core and your hips. You’ll need something to grab on for support for this one, and here’s how you should do it:

    1. Stand with your feet apart and extend your arms straight out to the side.
    2. Bend your upper body forward while extending one of your legs backward as you bend forward. As you bend forward, you can use your support to help balance yourself out.
    3. Once in position, turn the foot of your extended leg to the inside so that your leg turns to the inside all the way up to your hips. From there, you’ll turn your foot to the exterior and you’ll open your hips with the same motion.
    4. From the open hip position, turn back to the closed hip position to complete a rep.
    5. Repeat the movement 10 to 15 times, on each leg, to really feel the stretch.

Band W to Y

This third exercise will help with your upper body, and more specifically, your arms and shoulders. Here’s how to do it:

    1. Set up a resistance band on a rack (or a solid object that won’t move). Make sure the band is about chest high.
    2. Stand in front of the installation with your feet apart and grab each end of the resistance band with one hand.
    3. While holding on to the band, bring your hands near your shoulders, but make sure to keep them on each side of your body. In this position, your upper body and your arms should form a “W”. This is our starting point.
    4. From there, you’ll want to raise your arms in an open position. In other words, you’re looking to make a “Y” shape with your body and your arms. Bring your arms back in the “W” position to complete a rep.
    5. Repeat this movement 10 to 15 times for maximum efficiency.
    6. Don’t forget to keep the resistance band stretched out during this exercise.
    7. If the resistance is too great on the band, either get a less resistant one or simply get closer to your installation to limit the resistance for warm-ups.

90/90 Hip Washers

This next exercise is also aimed to help loosen your hip and work on your hip mobility. This is how you should do it:

    1. Begin in a seated position with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle at the knees, forming an "L" shape. You can use your arms for support behind you or along the sides.
    2. Start activating the motion by turning your torso and your hips to the left. This motion will force you to rest the outside of your left leg on the ground, while the inside of your right leg should be parallel to the ground (or resting on the ground if you’re flexible enough).
    3. From the left side position, rotate your torso and your hips as well as flipping your legs to the opposite direction to complete a rep.
    4. Repeat the movement between 10 to 15 times for each side.

Seated Foam Roll Trunk Rotation

Next up, this rotational exercise will engage your core and your back to help you build a stronger mid-section. Note that you’ll need a foam roller or something similar to help you out. Here are the steps to doing it right:

    1. Sit on the floor with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle and place a foam roller horizontally behind your hips.
    2. Slightly lean backward on the foam roller to engage your core and cross your arms over your chest.
    3. Rotate your upper body to your left, turning your torso, your head, and your arms, while keeping your hips in contact with the foam roller.
    4. Rotate to your right and maintain contact with the foam roller to complete a rep.
    5. Complete 5 to 10 full reps to maximize efficiency.

Foam Roll Thoracic Spine Extension

Finally, this extension exercise will help loosen the upper part of your back and your torso. It’s a simple, yet effective stretch, so, here’s how you do it:

    1. Sit on the floor with the foam roller placed horizontally behind your upper back.
    2. Support your head with your hands, keeping your elbows wide.
    3. Tighten your core to provide stability and protect your lower back during the movement.
    4. Slowly roll up and down the thoracic spine, focusing on the area between the shoulder blades. Roll up and down to complete one full extension.
    5. Pause and apply gentle pressure on any tight or tender spots.
    6. Go through 5 to 10 full extensions to complete your warm-up routine.

For this last part of the warm-up, make sure to complete one or two sets of the exercises listed above. Adjust the number of reps based on your feel. You’ve completed the exercises once and still don’t feel loose enough? Go for another round before you get into your true program for the day.
