Staying Flexible Focused on the Course - Week 13

RSS

Welcome to our series Flexible & Focused! With my golf fitness tips you can improve your golf game and increase your fitness level! For this series we are using a regular iron, driver or golf cart for the on course exercises. When you incorporate these exercises while playing, you improve flexibility, decrease the risk of injury associated with your golf swing and increase focus! If you are just joining us, see weeks 1-12 to catch up!
 
Step 1: Do these simple exercises at the tee box while you await your turn to tee off.
 
Step 2: Each week you will have a new exercise. This is a progressive workout which means that every week you will have a new exercise to perform along with the exercise from weeks prior. Execute each stretch to a comfortable position and hold for 20-30 seconds.
 
Step 3: Perform the exercise upon approaching the next tee box to stay flexible and injury free for maximum results!
 
Let’s get started! 

Cart Shoulder Stretch

Cart Shoulder Stretch

Standing beside the golf cart with your side facing the cart, reach across your body with your outside arm and grab the cart’s canopy support bar. Slowly turn your torso away from the cart to accelerate the stretch. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds and repeat the stretch from the other side.
