As the technology has improved in the golf industry as well as the fitness industry over the last few years, the research that has been done on a complete a golf fitness program allows us to look at a golf swing and its parts much differently now than just a few years ago. Many golf courses and country clubs have added a golf fitness program to their year-round programming.
Many of our students would like to start a golf fitness program that they can accomplish at their house and ask us where they should focus their golf fitness program.
Much of the success of a consistent golf swing is dependent on your core muscles. A great way to improve your core muscles is through golf fitness program that provides resistance. Resistance training means that your body gets used to working against an added pressure or pull. When you get use to performing a certain action or motion with resistance, then removing that resistance makes the act far easier, and adds power to your stroke. Resistance cords help you strengthen almost all of your upper body muscles involved in your swing, including chest, back, torso, rotator cuffs, shoulders, and even hips. You may also consider using a medicine ball to achieve simple yet beneficial strengthening of the core muscles through twisting and flexibility.
The core muscles are some of the most essential muscles to the game of golf, which is why so many golf fitness programs focus on core training or balance training. Balance training strengthens your core muscles all together because it requires you to use your stomach and back to maintain proper alignment. Balance balls and balance discs offer a variety of positions and exercises that strengthen your balance and, therefore, your core muscles, which can greatly improve the accuracy and distance your swing can achieve.
