A Golf specific workout designed specifically for your physical limitations will give you the greatest results in the quickest amount of time. You may not be interested in this approach, but I can tell you quite confidently, this is the missing link to your golf swing improvement. Your current physical capabilities dictate your golf swing. There is no other way to put it.
There are certain physical requirements that must be met to make an optimal golf swing with maximum power and efficiency. Have you tried to make a full backswing only to feel tight, restricted and tense doing so? Do you think the answer is hitting more balls or taking more lessons?
The answer is a golf specific workout designed to eliminate your swing faults and poor golf swing mechanics. The minute you improve these physical limitations, your golf swing will transform right in front of your eyes.
This may sound dramatic, but its true. When youre able to make a full backswing (90 degree shoulder turn, with a 45 degree hip turn) with no muscular tension or restrictions, you will be able to generate maximum clubhead speed and power into the golf ball.
You will also be able to repeat this for 18 holes. This will result in less mishits, more fairways hit and scores that will drop quickly. Doesnt that sound like the outcome you have been hoping for, for a long time?
One of the most important components of a golf specific workout is core rotational strength and flexibility. The golf swing is a rotate back and a rotate through. This entails your core to have optimal strength and flexibility from a rotational standpoint. All other exercises should be a secondary priority when designing a golf specific workout.
The beauty of a golf specific workout is it can be done in your home with minimal equipment. For less than $80, you can have a complete golf specific workout gym in your home, saving you hundreds of dollars a year in gym memberships, and also giving you back more time to play golf due to the convenience of doing it in your home with no travel time involved.
Knowing youre doing a golf specific workout that will enhance your golf game will motivate you to stick with it. Adherence is key to your success. So many people start fitness programs, only to quit before they saw any results. Dont fall into the same trap.
Understanding it will take a little time for your body to respond to your golf specific workout will allow you to have realistic expectations. But I can tell you, the results may show up very quickly if your current physical conditioning is below par.
Its never too late to embark on a golf specific workout program. I have seen golfers in their 80s, who have increased their driving distance by up to 60 yards! They were not able to get the ball air born, and now can make a bigger turn hitting the ball more solid and much further.
This is something you cant ignore!
Your golf improvement program should definitely incorporate practice, a few lessons to get a basic understanding of golf swing mechanics and most importantly a golf specific workout.
