The Nike MetCon 2 gets a new look for Spring, inspired by the year’s first golf Major and Rory McIllroy’s training journey. Rory McIllroy puts in hard work on the course and also views moments off the course as an opportunity to improve. This diligence takes form in cross training with running, cutting, jumping, and weight lifting to improve muscle endurance, strength, and speed. “Ever since I started to get into strength and conditioning, it has not only improved my golf game but also helped prevent injury.” McIllroy relies on the MetCon 2 for its strength and stability to aid with squats and core work. “Good posture and reliable core stability ultimately improve my swing and make me more consistent. I like to keep a workout routine for at least six to eight weeks before changing it up. Recently I’ve started to add some speed and strength-specific training to get more explosive.” The ‘Strength in Bloom’ MetCon 2 takes cues from the Azalea flower which has special meaning for Rory, and will be available online via the Nike store from March 28.
