Core Training for Golfers
Core training for golfers is a must
for developing maximum power and distance. As in all athletics,
the core is your engine. Everything comes from the core! The
modern golf swing is definitely a “core-focused” movement;
unlike the older swing technique of lower body action dominant.
You probably have heard the term core training for golfers,
but do you know what it means and how to implement it into
your golf performance routine?
Your core is the middle section of your body…specifically
your abdominal region. If your core is weak or restricted
in rotational flexibility, you will have a minimal chance
at hitting long drives.
I see this all the time in the senior golfer. No core strength
or flexibility, resulting in a HUGE decrease in yardage off
the tee. The senior golfer will say things like, “I’ve lost
so much yardage off the tee the past few years”; “I use to
hit my drives 50 yards further”; “If I could only get 20 more
yards I’d be happy”.
This can be a very frustrating situation; but one that can
be remedied easily, quickly and in the convenience of your
home with minimal equipment. Improving your core rotational
strength and flexibility does not require equipment in a gym
You can do exercises as simple as grabbing a single handweight,
getting in your golf posture, and rotating back and through
holding the handweight in front of your stomach. You can also
do stretches right in your office chair. Sitting upright and
reaching around your chair, turning as far as you can to the
right, then turning to the left.
These are just some very basic core training for golfers exercises,
but they would give you a “kickstart” into doing a complete
program for your core.
You will be amazed at how much power you acquire in your swing
when you implement a core training for golfers program. Even
if that’s all you did for the time-being, you’d be way ahead
of the game.
But my guess is once you start slow and easy, you’ll get the
“runners high” and want to do more. This does not have to
be a gut-busting routine! You can spend as little as 10 minutes
a couple of times a week and see results.
Don’t put it off any longer!
