Golf workouts for winter is a great approach to taking advantage of the time you now have available to improve your golf since youre not playing as much, if not at all. Its a way to stay connected to your golf game when youre not able to play due to the conditions (snow, temperatures, ice, etc.).
Have you gone into depression mode when winter hits and you cant play golf anymore? I know this use to happen to me until I finally moved to a year-round nice climate. This transition from playing golf regularly to not at all can be depressing.
What do you do with all the time you now have since youre not playing?
The answer? Golf workouts for the winter! This is your off-season and like most athletes they work on their bodys to take their game to the next level. This is a time where you evaluate your game and work on your weaknesses.
A common denominator for most golfers, especially senior golfers is physical capabilities. This is your current level of golf-specific strength and flexibility. It is highly unlikely you have no physical limitations in your golf swing. 80% or more of amateur golfers play with an injury during the season. This would tell me there is a physical issue.
What better time than winter to do golf workouts to greatly improve this situation. There is no excuse. Youve got the time and hopefully youve got the motivation to improve your game. Youve just got to set up a game plan in regards to your golf workouts for winter.
The first step is to get a physical evaluation done to diagnose your current level of fitness specific to golf. You can hire a local golf fitness trainer or look on the web. Golf workouts are becoming so popular you cant miss finding out information about them.
Once youve gotten your golf fitness evaluation, assess the areas that need the most work and spend the majority of your time on those areas. Most likely this would be flexibility and core strength. These are two very common areas that are lacking and can make the most impact on your golf improvement.
You will be shocked at your progress if you stick with it through the entire winter. The first time you step on the range, youll feel like a different golfer. It will be like an out-of-body experience. Youll soon realize this is what youve been missing all along.
So when you put those clubs up for the winter and go into depression mode remember this article and start your golf workouts for winter.
