Improving Your Golf Fitness
They say that practice makes perfect. But the truth is, only perfect practice makes perfect. If you’re practicing the same imperfect movements, building the wrong muscle groups, or reinforcing the wrong muscle memory, you’re not helping your golf swing.
Fortunately, golf fitness experts say that regular exercise can help you to reinforce the right muscle memory to get the distance and consistency you’ve been missing. Try adopting these exercises into your regular workout to see better results on the golf course:
Planks are isometric exercises that help you build your core abdominal muscle strength. Planks can help to stabilize your body to give you increased power during your swing while reducing your injury risk. To complete a perfect plank, get into a typical pushup position. Rest your body weight on your forearms by bending your arms underneath you. Keep legs off the ground, supporting yourself on your elbows and toes while maintaining a tucked stomach and back. Hold the position for one to two minutes.
Lunges are perfect for strengthening your lower body and developing endurance without putting too much strain on your joints. They’re also great for stability and balance. With your upper body straight and upright, shoulders back, and chin up, step one leg forward. Lower your body at the hips until your knees are at a 90-degree angle. Be sure to work on your less-dominant leg a little more than your dominant leg for added stability and strength.
Deadlifts are an excellent core muscle exercise to help you get a more powerful swing and better posture stability. Deadlift with the perfect form takes practice and is best performed under the guidance of a professional trainer.
