Golf Fitness Helps You Play Your Best Golf

Typically you’ll hear a group of golfers all talking about the newest technology and what club or which ball they need to improve their golf game. We all want to believe that the newer golf technology will get us to the next level of play. While there may be some truth to the theory, more emphasis is being placed on fitness for golf. Many players are now accepting the fact that by conditioning the body on a regular basis, they create an opportunity for more optimal play.

No matter what you current level of play, if your muscles become stronger and more flexible your swing will show improvement. The golf swing places complex demands on the body. There must be mental concentration, neuromuscular coordination, and muscular strength and flexibility all functioning at the same time during the few seconds it takes to make your swing.

To synchronize the body’s performance and improve your game, the best fitness for golf regimen includes what is called functional fitness. The exercises of functional fitness for golf are designed to mimic the golf swing, and improve strength, balance, and flexibility. This method of regular conditioning even if it’s only a few minutes a day can greatly increase your ability to achieve and maintain an optimal swing.

The key here is to realize that you want to tone and condition your body for the overall performance required during a round of golf. Golf involves repetitive movements from many muscle groups. By implementing functional fitness for golf, your muscles will be trained to automatically perform when necessary. You’ll also reduce your risks of strains and injury.

Benefits aren’t just in acquiring a more powerful and consistent golf swing; your overall health and stamina will also improve, both on and off the golf course. When beginning a fitness for golf regimen it’s good to get an overall assessment of your current level of strengths and weaknesses. By identifying areas of weakness, you can concentrate more on improving in those areas rather than spending more time on areas where your performance is stronger.

If you are not currently in a fitness program for golf, give it a try. You can get an assessment online and even do the necessary conditioning right in your own home. The time spent will bring you rewards on the course.
