  1. Training for golf

    Some great answers here - much appreciated. Leeroid - I'd be very interested what kind of training your brother does. I know it doesn't really matter how far you hit it off the tee, but being able to smash it is one of the things I really enjoy about the game. Since I am going to the gym anyway, I might as well do something that helps with that. Funny enough I have been following Bret Contreras blog - he is the glute guy. FOTR - great video, very much agree with what they guy says.
  2. Hi all I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone had any specific recommendations or programs for golfers. I have been going to the gym for a year now, mainly doing Kettlebell circuits and some weight lifting, but I haven't seen too many results in terms of getting more distance of the tee yet. Just thought I'd throw it out there if anyone had any ideas. Cheers.
  3. Good Auckland CBD gym

    There's also Fitbox - it's a little hidden in O'Connell St, but it's not overcrowded and has a really good selection of cardio and strength gear. Check it out here: www.fitbox.co.nz
  4. 1. Are you interested in having a DEXA scan? - Yes 2. How much would you be prepared to pay for a DEXA scan? - $50 3. Ideally, how often would you have a DEXA scan? - once a month 4. What would your reason be for having a DEXA scan? - track progress The gym where I am training have got this new system to measure body fat, muscle mass and it also measures hydration levels, pretty cool. I have had 3 scans so far and my body fat has gone up by 0.5 kg in a month, which I am obviously not happy about, but at least I know! I was skeptical about it at first, but it gave me very accurate readings, and they have got an online portal where I can check my progress. I probably wouldn't pay a lot of money for a DEXA scan, because this system is very good and a lot more accurate than skinfold tests (IMHO anyway).
