Golf flexibility training has come a long way. There are many more golf flexibility training stretches that can greatly impact your golf swing. Simple golf stretches, that done daily will give you a huge return on investment (your time).
There is a big difference between general flexibility training and golf flexibility training. Just take a look at the positions the body is in during the golf swing and youll see many potential golf stretches you can come up with on your own.
The most common area a golfer should apply golf flexibility training is the backswing, impact and follow through.
You might be saying, well thats the whole swing.
Yes you might think so, but Im talking about creating a golf flexibility training program that incorporates golf stretches specifically for those positions of the swing. As mentioned earlier, just take a look at the position your body is in at the top of your backswing; impact; and follow through into your finish.
There are your stretches!
Its not rocket science to come up with golf training programs regarding both flexibility and strength. Youve just got to use your creative side and keep the golf swing in mind when devising these golf training programs.
Tension is the biggest killer in the golf swing bar none!
Most amateurs, if not all of them (us) have tension in our golf swings. Tension robs you of power. This is a known fact! A tense muscle is a slow muscle. A slow muscle produces minimal speed and ultimately power.
The key to a powerful golf swing is minimal tension and effort equals maximum distance AND accuracy.
One quick way to improve this is with a consistent golf flexibility training program done daily. This doesnt entail 60 minutes of your time and dozens of stretches. Im talking about 6-8 key golf flexibility training stretches taking up no more than 15 minutes per day.
Can you handle that?
I know you can. If your golf performance is important to you, youll make the time to get the results!
And when you step onto that course and start making effortless golf swings that go farther and straighter than ever before, youll know it was well worth doing your golf flexibility training.
