A golf stretching dvd can and would be a very effective way to improve your golf swing technique, power and overall performance but you cant forget one very important factor to make these results lasting!
The main reason you cant just look for a golf stretching dvd is the critical component of strength specific to your golf swing. You see improving your flexibility with a golf stretching program, without the implementation of golf strength exercises will not warrant long-term flexibility gains.
Picture a rubber band for a second. Keep stretching it and stretching it. What happens? It breaks down and eventually snaps in two.
You muscles are the same thing. You can keep stretching your muscles, but unless you improve your strength in those newfound ranges of motion, they wont be permanent results. In fact, just doing a golf stretching dvd could be detrimental to your performance by exposing your muscles to injury.
The wisest purchase would be a golf exercise dvd that incorporates both stretching AND strengthening exercises. Now you will see permanent results! You wont be wasting your time in hopes of a better golf swing.
Youll see a much higher level of power, accuracy and overall consistency. I am always surprised when a senior golfer says he/she needs to work on their flexibility, and the term strength is not put in there.
We know from statistics the human body loses range of motion AND strength every year that you dont maintain it. The use-it-or-lose-it phrase comes to mind and its a true one. Your muscles were meant to be used, not just lay dormant and inactive throughout your later years.
When you start to really understand how the human body works, youll have a different outlook on your golf performance program. You will no longer think that the answer is a golf stretching dvd.
