Question ID: 249801
I'll throw this out there because I've tried to research this but haven't gotten very far. What I'm looking to find out is what Tiger Woods' workout program (strength, flexibility, cardio, other) consists of? There seems to be some scattered information on the Web but I haven't come up with much that has any substance. Pretty much the only info I have come across is in his book "How I Play Golf" and in the following article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/main.jhtml?xml=/sport/2001/01/13/sgwood14.xml I know that Tiger's workout program is kept under pretty tight wraps but I figured I would ask here anyway to see if anyone might have any more information. The specifics that I am looking for that I would consider to be a satisfactory answer include at least a few of the following: -What types of lifting exercises Tiger does, frequency of his workouts, numbers of sets and repetitions and amount of weight -What specific types of stretches Tiger performs, how often he stretches, how long he stretches for, does he do active stretching vs. passive stretching, etc. -What other types of body work Tiger has done (e.g. chiropractic, massage, structure work, etc.) I certainly don't need to know everything but am looking for more information than I currently have.

Greetings Jpbischke: Although I could not locate a blow-by-blow description of Tiger's fitness regimen, this link may be of interest to you. Ernie Els' Guide to Golf Fitness [Ernie Els is second only to Tiger Woods] "Els developed his program--geared specifically to address a golfer's strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular system--with David Herman, the fitness trainer who helped Els shed the 15 pounds he credits with the resurgence of his game and better health overall. Though many of the exercises--all of which Els himself demonstrates in photographs--require gym equipment, others don't, and while all provide a workout, the program can be easily adjusted in its difficulty and demands to fit any level of desire and ability." http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0609806556/qid=1062098880/sr=8-2/ref=sr_8_2/102-5001182-4342502?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 I hope another Researcher will be able to locate the entire Tiger Woods workout program for you.

An interesting follow-up to this. This month's Golf Digest has a story entitled "Tiger Woods' Workout Program Revealed" or somethng like that. Anyway, it's a bit of a teaser because there aren't many details revealed in the story but it was funny to read through the article and see how much difficulty the author had in trying to answer this question. He finally got someone to speak and while there isn't a ton of information, it was interesting. I don't think I can include the article here because of copyright but if you're interested, check it out.
