You Need More Flexibility…Period

Golf-specific workout exercises produce greater flexibility. Greater flexibility for middle-aged and seasoned golfers will improve their games, and offer a host of additional benefits.

The top five benefits are:

  •  Turn – proper coiling of the body and the ability to make a complete turn will produce your maximum distance. Flexibility exercises as a part of your golf fitness regimen helps stretch and strengthen your muscles to achieve a complete backswing and produce more distance off the tee box.
  • Increased Balance – Golf fitness helps you develop balance on your feet and enhances your ability to stand on one foot for a longer period of time (a key component of the swing finish). Increased Balance is a skill that can be acquired through practice. Balance training leads to increased flexibility and the ability to stay in control, for a more consistent golf swing.
  • Increased Endurance – Increased flexibility requires less energy per swing, allowing you to stay more physically and mentally fresh. Four to five hour rounds will not take the physical toll on you as they once did.  Endurance training as part of your golf fitness program focuses on stamina exercises using multiple reps with light resistance.
  • Increased Power – Strength and power conditioning help increase club head speed. Greater swing speed combined with greater “Smash Factor” (the ability to hit the ball squarely in the club face) produce greater distance. Golf fitness focuses on transferring power through your the lower body and core, which is built through golf fitness  conditioning.
  • Better Overall Health – Stiffness, soreness, and pain can be minimized, even eliminated through a proper golf fitness routine.  Typical golf injuries of the shoulders, knees, back, or wrists can be avoided. A golf-specific flexibility and strength program can improve your overall health, improve your golf game, and improve your life.

Key point:  Flexibility cannot be taught, it can only be trained. Understanding this key point lets you know the importance of increased flexibility in your body to improve your golf game and overall health.
