How do I fit strength and conditioning training into my golf schedule?

If you are an avid golfer, training should be a part of your daily life. Flexibility is a key component in efficient golf swings. I start my day with a 10 minute stretch focused on my area of concern, hips and low back. That 10 minutes makes for more enjoyable day on and off the golf course.
I try to find 30 minutes 3 times per week to focus on more specific issues, balance and stability. You will find incorporating this in to your exercise program proves beneficial in improving overall on course performance. 
You should be able to get in three days of training each week in addition to your weekly golf game. Training sessions should not be on consecutive days and you should allow one days rest between a training session and playing golf.
