Golf Fitness Program a Key Factor in Maximizing Your Game0
Testimonials to golf fitness are seen all over the television. Its talked about on the practice tee and in clubhouses. Why is there so much talk about golf fitness? Is it really that important? And if so, what are the elements that make up a good golf fitness program and how can paying attention to them help you play your best golf?
The premise of a Golf Fitness in Dallas Tx golf fitness program is to first diagnose your physical limitations through a golf fitness evaluation, than come up with a plan to reduce or eliminate those physical limitations to achieve optimal swing mechanics.
A golf fitness program covers four areas:
- Golf-specific strength exercises
- Golf stretching exercises
- An aerobic conditioning plan to improve your endurance on the course
- A nutrition plan to give you energy and help you reduce unwanted pounds
Any Golf Fitness in Dallas Tx golf fitness program that skips the above components will not be successful.
Every golfer has strength, flexibility, endurance and nutrition issues that can be greatly improved. Below are some specific examples of things that might be included in a Golf Fitness in Dallas Tx golf fitness program in each category.
The strength-for-golf section of the program should address the core area, which means focusing
on rotational strength and flexibility an example would be doing seated twists with a single dumbbell to improve rotational range of motion and strength.
The flexibility-for-golf section should be specific to your golf swing. The backswing is always a focal point when it comes to drills and stretching exercises, but what about the follow through?
With aerobic conditioning for golf, youve got to look at the main activity: walking. Then devise a cardio program that incorporates a 20-30 minute walking program at an intensity of 10-15 percent higher than when you a golf course. This will give you an aerobic improvement, helping you maintain concentration without fatiguing.
Nutrition for golf could be a separate, full report, let alone a single article. But the main thing to remember is to fuel your body with a meal of protein and carbs before you tee off, than eat a couple of snacks (fruit, nuts, etc) during the round to maintain blood sugar levels. This will provide you with more than enough fuel (energy) to get you easily through 18 holes. So as you see with this brief overview of a golf fitness program, there are many things to consider and put into place. But the bottom line is to get started on your golf fitness program right away. Youre giving up strokes if you delay.
