Golf Exercises Don’t Have To Be Grueling
Golf exercises are viewed by the majority of golfers as “work”. That is why it is so difficult to convince golfers that golf exercises can be fun and don’t have to wipe you out physically.
Tip: Before beginning your round of golf, note the ball that you are using, and inform the members of your group of the ball’s brand name and number. This way, you always know which ball is yours and do not accidentally play the wrong ball, which can lead to a loss of a stroke.
I’ve worked with many golfers in person and with my online golf performance sites, who were shocked to realize how much fun and motivating golf exercises can be.
Tip: It doesn’t matter if you are a golf novice or seasoned pro, you will hit sand traps and bunkers from time to time. Hacking your way out of these situations can make a mess.
Don’t picture going into a sweaty, smelly gym and lifting god-awful weights. No…picture doing golf exercises that mimic your golf swing and have a direct impact on your power, accuracy and consistency.
This new outlook will be a huge motivating factor in the success of your golf exercise program. When you envision the end result, it makes it all worthwhile.
It’s also a double benefit!
Tip: Look for the “sweet spot” of your golf club. This refers to a point on the club that should be ideally meeting the ball for the most accuracy and speed.
Doing golf exercises that closely mimic your golf swing, will not only improve the strength and flexibility of your golf swing quickly, but reinforce your swing technique off the course. This double benefit will transform your game.
Get ready for powerful drives, accurate approach shots, and scores that will plummet.
Tip: You need to get as much practice as you can swinging your golf club. If you can get a simulation machine or borrow one, use it to help you practice.
Golf exercises can be done with very affordable and portable equipment saving you time, money and convenience. The thought of going to a gym; or having to join a gym to get started will keep you from starting indefinitely.
Tip: You don’t need a golf cart on the course when you can walk instead. This helps you get much more exercise so that you can improve your health.
Your golf exercises can be done in your home, office or even a hotel room with exercise tubing, a pair of handweights, and maybe a stability ball if you want to get a little more creative.
Tip: While golf may be a relaxed sport, it is of utmost importance to understand what is happening around you at all times during your round. Be ready for your shot when your turn comes up.
They are not golf exercises if they are on a machine (especially seated ones). How can a seated machine help your golf swing, when your golf swing is done on your feet, in a very dynamic position require timing, sequence of motion, and stability to name a few?
Tip: A good tip to improve your golf swing is to use your whole body for power. Beginners often mistakenly think that arms provide the power in the stroke, but using the arms alone makes for an clumsy, weak swing.
So next time your golfing buddy says he’s doing golf exercises, ask him (her) what they’re doing specifically. If he/she says they go to the gym and use the machines, you won’t have to say anymore.
Fueled with the above, affordable equipment you are ready to embark on your golf exercises.
