How do I obtain Functional Strength?
Do you strength train? I hope so. Strength is needed when building power especially for the golf swing. If you aren’t lifting to improve your Functional Strength you might be strong but you aren’t going to optimize what you got.
What do I mean by that? Functional strength- to me- means a couple of things:
Can you maintain a good spine position through your lifts?
I call it working on your “spinal hygiene”. Strength, and energy transference are highly dependent on you keeping a good spine through your sub maximal lifts. If not you will get stronger but it will be through cheating.
Do you train strength through all planes of motion?
The human body can move forward/backward, side to side, and in rotation. If you are an athlete, managing your body in balance and strength through all these ranges of motion becomes important. Depending on your sport, some planes of motion can be more important than other but guess what functional strength takes this into consideration.

Is your body in balance with strength?
To check balance of strength, one assessments I might start with is from the Titleist Performance Institute (www.myTPI.com). This test looks at the athlete’s ability to demonstrate strength, speed and power for golf (and all rotary sports really). We have metrics that allow us (TPI Certified) to know if you are in balance with upper body, lower body and core strength and power.
