If you’ve watched any golf on television you’ve no doubt heard commentator’s mention golf training. It’s no secret that 95 percent of professional golfers are doing some for of golf fitness training.
If there livelihood depends on their performance and they are participating in golf training, why wouldn’t amateur golfers do same? The golf swing is one of most physically demanding movements on human body of all sports.
Swinging a three and a half foot long implement at upwards of 100 mph, while maintaining balance, stabilization and proper swing mechanics is very difficult. I don’t think I have to convince you of that do I?
The “only” way to be able to accomplish this is by improving strength AND flexibility of your golf muscles. What’s simplest way to do this? I can tell you not on a machine in your local gym.
Just take a look at golf swing to realize it’s “on your feet” and bent at waist. How could sitting in a machine help that? It can’t! You’ve got to do as many golf exercises as possible on your feet, involving balance, coordination, strength and flexibility. You don’t even have to be a golf training specialist to come up with some creative golf exercises on your own.
