Here's Ron: For the past three weeks, I've been rolling out new exercises for the advanced 20-in-20 workout for golfers. (Click here to get caught up.) This week, I've got two more. Simply put, the 20-in-20 is a total-body workout geared toward strengthening and lengthening golfers' muscles with the added benefit of improving endurance. The idea is to do two sets of 10 different exercises in 20 minutes. Complementary exercises are paired (one lower-body exercise and one upper-body exercise) so you can train with shorter breaks between sets and really get your heart pumping.

Keep in mind that this is an "advanced" workout and should only be attempted by golfers who already are working out regularly or have been cleared by their doctors for strenuous activity. There is a basic version of the 20-in-20 for beginners and it can be found here.
