Starting with Hole #2, named Hell Bunker, a short par 4 with 295 yards fromrepparttar 139455 middle (gold) tees is laced on both sides ofrepparttar 139456 fairway with sand traps.

Golf Conditioning Myths

Written by Mike Pedersen


Golf conditioning is here and now! Golf has always been viewed as a game of leisure. But today's golfer is leaner, stronger, and fitter. Untilrepparttar last few years, golfers didn't know how to go about incorporating exercise or, specifically, a golf conditioning program.

They have had a vision of going intorepparttar 139441 local gym and being intimidated byrepparttar 139442 "muscle heads." It can also be overwhelming to decide what plan of action to take and if it will be worthrepparttar 139443 time and effort. I have listed three myths about strength training for golf andrepparttar 139444 truths about them as well.

"I will bulk up too much and that will hinder my golf swing."

Golf conditioning specific for golf will not result in muscle gain that will alter your swing mechanics. To increase muscle size, involves lifting increasingly heavier weights with lower repetitions, increasing your calorie intake dramatically, and spending a couple of hours per day lifting weights.

A golf conditioning program incorporates moderate weight, with medium (12-15) repetitions, and in a time frame of 30-45 minutes. This type of program is designed to improve your golf specific strength and endurance, not build muscle.

"I will lose flexibility if I lift weights."

In fact,repparttar 139445 opposite is true! Weak muscles are also tight muscles. When you do resistance training, you are increasing blood flow, working through a functional range of motion specific to golf, and strengtheningrepparttar 139446 tendons and ligaments in every joint of your body. In conjunction with a stretching program, strength training will improve flexibility, not hinder it.
