Golf Strength Training Slows The Aging Process
Golf strength training is critical in slowing down the effects of aging. Issues like rapidly declining strength, flexibility, and endurance. The number of golfers who are middle age or older is growing and they all want to play as long as possible.
In order to both slow the aging process AND play longer, you need adequate levels of strength, flexibility, and other physical abilities.
Tip: Check the area where your ball was, and if there is a divot, you need to fix it. Balls that fly into the green often leave large dents which can harm the grass of the green and prove frustrating to the next golfers on the green.
Golfers (and most others) lose as they age. The cause is quite simple. They do not partake in any form of golf strength training exercises to maintain the fitness levels they had early on in life.
Tip: Don’t starve on the course, bring a small snack or high protein bar with you. The game of golf is exhausting, both mentally and physically.
It is NEVER too late to improve strength and flexibility. I have worked with golfers in person and via my websites that are in their 70’s and 80’s that have almost doubled their current strength and dramatically improved their flexibility (specific to golf).
Tip: Before you take your first shot make sure you head to the driving range to take some long shots. Loosen up your body while getting in some good practice so you do not start off cold.
Just by doing a simple golf strength training routine a couple of times a week, you will increase the level of strength and other important aspects, and not be as aware of the changes that come with aging. You can’t stop it, but you can slow it down and even reverse it depending on your current level of fitness.
Tip: Practice is the key to resolving the common error of slicing. The problem lies in improper contact between the clubface and ball during the hit, which results in right-direction curvature.
One of the major areas most senior golfers lose…is the flexibility in their midsection (core), which is critical in generating power in the golf swing. As a result, the senior golfer will make a change in swing technique, rather than address the physical limation.
Tip: Put your whole body behind your golf swing. Inexperienced golfers often mistakenly believe that power should come only from the arms.
There are many senior golfers who can still play a good game of golf due to the fact of playing and practicing throughout the years…however their swing execution, power and overall consistency has been dramatically affected.
Tip: A great golfing tip for beginners is to be aware of your tee height. Unless the tee is placed at an appropriate height, it is almost impossible to drive efficiently.
Therefore, it is critical for senior golfers to maintain or increase strength, flexibility, even balance and coordination to preserve the performance or level of golf they so yearn to achieve.
Given the above scenario, I hope you realize the importance of golf strength training.
