    Stretching Your Golf Game Out

Golf can be one of those sports you love, and one you love to hate. Almost every golfer is looking for
that one way of increasing his or her abilities, of figuring out how to be a better golfer, how to improve
the game. What if the answer was something as simple as stretching?

Your golf game will improve dramatically when you are stronger and more flexible. Flexibility for golf is
often undervalued. Take a look at the basic golf movements: your golf swing uses your hip and knee
joints, your shoulders, elbow and wrist joints. A smooth swing is a result of smooth movements through
these joints, which comes with greater flexibility.

Flexibility is the ability of your body to move in a smooth range of motion. Our bodies are great
mechanical devices. And like any machine, requires routine maintenance to keep it at optimum
performance. Golf stretching is essentially part of the maintenance process. It warms up the muscles
and lengthens the connective tissues that attach to the muscles. As a result, you have more movement
through your joints. This can have an enormous change on your golf swing - you'll have more strength,
greater control and an improved range of motion.

Without proper golf stretching, you'll notice a distinctive "tightness" in the areas of your body that are
affected as you swing your golf club. These muscle groups are large muscles - the lower back or core
muscles, hips, hamstrings and shoulders. If you haven't stretched these muscles on a consistent basis,
or warmed them up prior to the game, the tightness that happens naturally keeps your golf swing from
moving in a smooth pass.

As a result, your swing suffers.

In golf, the power of your swing is a direct result of the range of motion as you move through the swing
plane. The greater your range of motion, the greater the power you can generate while swinging. This
increases your club head speed, which also increases the distance of your drive.

It seems only logical that if you want to improve your golf game, you need to start with some golf
stretching exercises. While it's great to warm up before the game with some static stretches, a

consistent routine of dynamic stretches will add great flexibility for golf. These exercises can be done at
home, without a lot of expensive equipment or a huge investment of time. Just 10 minutes a few nights
a week will improve your flexibility, your range of motion and make you a winner on the golf course.

                                  Golf Fitness Equipment to Put Into Your Golf Workout
                                                               By Maxx Johnson



You are practicing on your game but you want to hit the driver farther and straighter. A good teaching
professional could help you but you do not want to spend all of that money. Golf fitness equipment may
be the answer for you. Many times the students we teach are not flexible enough to reach the correct
golf swing positions. This is where we have to improvise as teachers and players. With this in mind, it
is easier to make one lever move the same direction every single time as opposed to two levers.

 The golf fitness equipment that you need may be as simple as an exercise mat. With an exercise mat,
you will be able to improve your flexibility by doing golf-specific stretching exercises. There are many
golf fitness books that spell out a golf flexibility program for you. Whatever you do, before you start a
rigorous golf workout or golf stretching program, be sure to consult your physician for approval.

 So, what should an ideal golf fitness flexibility program consist of and what types of golf fitness
equipment should it include?

 Your golf fitness program should have many variations such as a long version for regular training days
and a short version for Pre-Round Stretching. A variety of golf fitness equipment will help keep you
interested in your workout. A few variations with the large exercise ball should also be included. Using
the golf exercise ball during your golf specific workout is extremely important for the golfer as it allows
you to work out your core muscles. Your pre-round stretching routine you can do even with a couple of
stretches with a couple of golf clubs to do just before tee-off and between holes if necessary.

 Your stretching and workout program should be thorough. The program should address your head and
neck and go all of the way down to the feet. Why is this? The reason is because the golf swing is a
movement of the entire body.

 Your program must be symmetrical for your body. This simply means that what you workout or stretch
or workout out on one side of your body, you also need to do the same on the other side. This is the
true key to maintaining optimal muscle, tendon and joint balance on both sides of your body. This
allows for enhanced golf swing power without a large increase in swing effort. In addition and more
importantly, you will keep your body equal on both sides.

 The program must include several key compound stretches. Compound stretches elongate several
joint areas at the same time which will mimic natural movement patterns. This also allows the golfer to
be more accurate through enhanced fitness flexibility, body awareness and control.

 You should feel good afterward. This type of stretch routine or golf specific workout using golf fitness
equipment should make you feel as if your posture is immediately better and you should feel stronger.
You should almost feel like you could rip the cover off a ball if you were to hit one right after your golf
fitness stretch routine.

 Golf fitness equipment for your workout can vary depending on what you are attempting to improve.
Many successful golf workout programs use golf fitness equipment such as free weights, weighted
practice clubs, resistance cords, medicine balls and an exercise mat.
