Tips: How Golfers Can Get Physically Fit

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Making a hole in one takes a good deal of luck and talent, but fitness as well. The more fit you are, the less likely you are to make a fatigue-related mistake. Golf is commonly mistaken as just a leisure activity and that golfers can never truly improve their golf game by improving their fitness. Even working out and lifting weights was said to be bad for your golf swing. But today, most golfers, if not all have a fitness regimen. Fitness is not just for the pros. Many young players now realize that being in shape is not only great for your health but thier scores. And with senior golfers, they need to work harder to maintain their strength, stamina and power. After a certain age, it’s almost impossible to make great gains in physical fitness. So no matter what age or scale you are on as a golfer, we want to share with you a few tips on how to improve your golf game. Here are a couple of basic tips to get you started:

  1. Stretching is important in all sports and golfing isn’t and exception. First thing is to loosen up your larger muscles by doing exercises like standing y’s, seated rotations or hand-walks.
  2. Cardio training is important to maintain your endurance. Opt to walk over using the cart. This will give you an extra opportunity to exercise and strengthen your legs.
  3. Exercise bands and weighted balls are used for most golf exercises. Weight training use to be taboo to the golf world but is now accepted as being beneficial to your game. Training your golf muscles will lead to better fitness and in many cases will add distance to your shots.
  4. Look for exercises that strengthen your core and torso, including moves where you twist from the waist and bend at the hips (as it mimics your golf swing).

Fitness is a serious subject that goes far beyond the golf course. The benefits will not only help your golf game but also help you feel better in general. For more information or ideas on contests for improving your golf game visit our website here.
