Although golf may not be the most strenuous sport in the world, it helps to be in better shape when playing the game. Being fit has a lot of advantages when it comes to golf. You’re more limber, you have a wider range of motion, and you’re less prone to getting injured. In line with workouts, there are certain exercises that can help improve your golf game as well.
Medicine ball core rotations are great for working out your abdominals and obliques. Strengthening your core gives you a smoother motion and a stronger force when you make a swing while helping you keep a proper posture. You may do this exercise freehand, with a medicine ball, or a set of dumbbells.
Hip flexor with rotations and side bends work your core as well as your legs. This particular exercises stretches the muscles to extend their range of motion. With no weights needed, you can do this anywhere, even before teeing off.
Wood choppers are generally great for baseball, but they can also work well for golf players. This exercise works your shoulders and your obliques. The motion of swinging the pulled weights can be associated with your golf swing. Pulling on the weights requires explosive strength, strength that can build up and help you attempt more powerful swings.
While all these exercises and workout routines are great for golfers, keep in mind that doing warm-ups and stretching is important before playing the game as this helps you avoid injuries.
