Conditioning For Golf Produces A Powerful Golf Swing

Conditioning for golf sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? But let me ask you this. Do you feel stress in your body during or after a golf swing? I’m referring to physical stress. The muscles tightening; the lower back stiffening; the joints aching; or just plain physical fatigue. The reason I ask is to make you aware that conditioning for golf will help eliminate all the above.

Tip: When buying a golf club, you should get one that is custom-fitted for you. Since all golfers are built differently, different clubs work better for different people.

I’ve written many articles pertaining to the traumatic effect the golf swing can have on the body. Swinging a 3 foot plus lever (club) at up to 100 mph in a very dynamic and sometimes uncomfortable position (golf posture) will abuse your body quickly if you have not prepared your muscles from both a strength and flexibility standpoint.

Tip: Always try to have fun while playing golf so you will remain motivated to work on your game and play. The more you practice and learn what you can from experts in the game, the better you’ll play over time.

Physical breakdown of the body is a common occurrence for golfers. Many golfers don’t realize the intense pressure the golf swing causes, and yet they’ll deal with aches and pains through their entire golfing career.

It doesn’t have to be that way!

Golf is an athletic movement and you should physical prepare your body to perform, like any other athlete would for his or her sport.

Doesn’t that make sense?

Tip: So, your ball has landed in the sand; therefore, you should be courteous to the golfers who are behind you! It just takes a moment for you to rake any areas that you swing yourself out of when you land in a sand trap. It is bad manners to leave divots and foot prints behind after being in the trap.

I see golfers every day on the range and the golf course who are physically broken. They have locked up shoulders, inhibiting their ability to rotate fully; they have no core strength (most golfers are sporting too many pounds in the middle) to produce power and distance; poor hamstring flexibility, making it impossible to maintain golf poster; the upper back muscles are weak and tight causing the rounded upper back, eliminating any chance of proper spine angle.

I could go on and on, but I think you’re getting the picture.

Tip: If you are having difficulty carving out time for practice, you should focus your efforts on perfecting your short game. Focus on perfecting your chipping and putting skills.

I don’t know if golfers are in denial of the importance of conditioning for golf, or just don’t want to put any effort into that aspect of the game. But either way, it is inevitable that a weak and restricted body will have no chance at maximizing potential. It’s a physical impossibility.

Conditioning for golf should be taken seriously!

Tip: If you want to hit a good fade, tighten up your grip. People underestimate the aspects of having a good grip with their golf swing.

When you do a program specific to golf, it can be fun. Boredom is one of the biggest causes of consistency and results. But if you knew you were doing something not only for your personal health, but to benefit your golf game, wouldn’t that motivate you to stick with it?

Tip: Don’t do too much with your legs while you swing. What your legs do is shift power throughout your body, so when you move your legs you actually create less impact on the ball which could alter it’s course of action and reduce your distance.

We’re not talking about going to a gym for 2 hours with all the muscle heads. We’re talking about 20-30 minutes a day in your home. Simple and fun exercises with tubing, handweights and a stability ball. Your complete golf fitness gym for under $60. No gym memberships. Just a fun routine in the privacy of your home.

Tip: Before starting your swing, always check to ensure that you have the proper grip. The handle of it should be resting in you palms with both of your thumbs pointing downward.

Evaluate where your golf swing and game are currently and ask yourself this question. “Would I play better if I could move my body more fluidly and powerfully?” The answer is a resounding YES! You’ve got to realize this sooner or later. Prepare your body to perform and the sky is the limit.
