Lack of Core Stability Transverse abdominals / Internal Oblique (weakness) - Strengthen Pelvic floor muscles (weakness) - Strengthen
The “Core” is where all movement begins. It is also controlling force behind an individual’s center of gravity. The core muscles support spine and pelvis and are an essential part of driving ball with power and accuracy.
Stabilization training increases communication between nervous system and muscular system which will result in increased joint stabilization during functional movements such as golf. Performing exercises that require balance such as single leg exercises, stability ball exercises or using unstable surface’s will increase neuromuscular efficiency (communication between nervous system and muscular system).
The combination of corrective exercise, core training and stabilization training will greatly improve your ability to unleash true potential of your golf game. A balanced posture, strong core and efficient joint stabilization will decrease any pain or discomfort in your swing and significantly improve power and accuracy of your game.
