Ok, so not sure this belongs in this section, but my friend is driving me crazy and I really don't have an answer for him.. anyway..
He plays golf (very regularily so, it's a big deal).. he doesn't do much in the way of leg training for two reasons:
(1) he broke one leg in three places years ago and still has pins in his ankle, so there's a grandious number of exercises he can't perform
(2) he gets real tight hips and it affects the golf.. you know I guess the best golfers (besides Tiger) do real faggy workouts and mostly stretching)..
Anyway he's extremely lean and pretty well developed as he's not new to training, but he tried getting serious with the lower body training to get a little bigger (after breaking his leg he atrophied and would like to build it back up, but it doesn't train right being so twisted and is visibly smaller than the other one .. anyway back to my point..)
He says that after doing legs (mainly, dumbell squats), he can hit the ball perfectly and its amazing.. but the next day he'll be tight as a drum and his golf will suffer horribly.. what more.. if he sticks with the training for a month it will only get tighter and worse, but after some time off he'll go back to doing the db squats and be better than before.. until he starts training regularily and then gets tight again..
He stretches a lot (including sport-specific static stretching and whatever) but it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Im not a doctor or specialist in anyway, but he always asks me, and I just dont know what to say. I dont know anything about golf anyway and I dont know what to tell him.
I was hoping someone here might be able to give me advice or link me somewhere? Maybe there's a special way to traing for this sport?
