Here's Ron: Last week, I introduced the first two exercises in my new 20-in-20 workout. The name comes from the fact that you're doing two sets of 10 different exercises in 20 minutes. This workout is designed to hit all the muscle groups needed to play golf safely and effectively and also improve your endurance. It's also designed to promote muscle symmetry (your left side should be roughly as strong as your right).

This week, I'm giving you the third and fourth exercises (there will be 10 total) to add to your repertoire. You'll receive the remaining six exercises over the next few weeks. But in the meantime, you can refer to last week's Fitness Friday post for my previous 20-in-20 workouts (beginner and advanced) to keep you busy.

As I stated in the introduction video last week, these exercises are NOT for beginners, and anyone attempting them should consult with a doctor or certified physical trainer first. But if you're in the clear, this workout will be a fun challenge.
