Senior exercise for golf is becoming evident, but not enough to make a dent in the aging golfers approach to golf improvement. So many golfers who reach their 60s and up are looking for anything that will help them improve and yet the last thing they look at is their body.
With age comes a declining level of strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, coordination and more. With that being said, why wouldnt a senior golfer take care of those issues with a golf training and conditioning program?
It is quite obvious the body at that age dictates the outcome. With a slight improvement in both strength and flexibility the senior golfer can see dramatic improvements on the course.
The return on investment is well worth it!
If youre a senior golfing wanting to enjoy many years of good golf, you need to take a serious look at a senior exercise for golf program. One that suits your needs and current physical fitness level.
Once you do youll need to create some consistency to see results. Theres no such thing as a quick-fix in regards to health, fitness and even golf. At the same time, it doesnt need to be a commitment of several hours every day seven days a week.
You would be setting yourself up for failure from the get-go.
Being realistic with your goals and commitment level will give you the best results in the shortest amount of time. The number one cause of failure is adherence. Stick to it long-term and the sky is the limit.
A senior exercise for golf program can consist of 4-6 strength exercises, and 3-4 flexibility ones. Thats how simple and easy it can be. If you get the fitness bug, youll naturally do a little more. But starting off with this type of program format will be doable and enjoyable.
As soon as you start seeing results in your driving distance and accuracy, youll become a believer in fitness for golf. It really is the missing link to a great game.
The main focus of your senior exercise for golf program will be your core rotational strength and flexibility; along with hamstrings and maybe shoulders. Those are the key areas that will give you a noticeable improvement in power output and consistency of swing.
The best part is you can do this type of program right in your own home. Ive developed all my golf performance programs and websites to utilize minimal (and affordable) equipment in the home or even office. Ive received over 10,000 emails in the last 6 years, since launching the first online golf performance website on how great it is to not need a gym membership.
So take a look around or do a search for golf fitness or golf training to see what senior exercise for golf program suits you the best.
