What does a golfer need most
to perform his/her best game? New shoes? The best irons? A great swing? A brand
named golf course? All of the above?
execute a perfect swing a golfer must have oxygen-filled muscle groups. This
means lean, pliable, flexible muscle groups especially in the core (abdominal
muscles). This will power muscles for the duration of the game
Tight muscle groups are as
detrimental to a golfer’s scores as playing with a broken arm
golfer uses 32 muscle groups for each swing with the core being the powerhouse.
Muscle groups must go the distance (full range-of-movement) and re-power
quickly to go the distance (generate the same energy from the 1st
hole to the 18th hole).
swing requires 9 different body positions all of them out of the normal
anatomical position. If a golfer’s scores at least 90, he/she is educating
his/her muscle groups to perform this action at least 810 times in a 4-hour
period resulting in extremely tight muscles from muscle memory!
Muscle memory while so
important for a golfer is also the biggest hindrance to his/her scores!
5 Crucial tips for a golfer
- Build lean
muscles. Bulky muscles prevent
the movement required to swing effectively. Find a trainer who is knowledgeable
in exercises geared to building golfer’s muscles.
exercises and bodywork should relieve tightness in MUSCLE GROUPS. Muscle memory is created in muscle groups
(front and back) therefore flexibility is a must for both front and back
should address injury-prone areas. Right-handed golfers are injured in different areas than left-handed
golfers. Make sure your bodyworker/trainer knows your injury prone sites.
Water! Water! Lack of water in
muscles causes major tension. Golfers need flexible, pliable, oxygenated
muscles to perform well. Hydration is key to a successful game!
torso length can influence the outcome of your game. Don’t just rely on technology or your golf club;
use YOUR body to maximize accuracy in your swing.
