Staying Flexible Focused on the Course - Week 14

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 1-13 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! 

Club Hamstring Stretch

Club Hamstring Stretch

Stand with your club in front club face towards you and hand atop the club. Having the club face towards you prevents the club from slipping away from you as you do this exercise. Take one foot back and place both feet firm. Bent the knee of the back leg and slowly sit back as though you were sitting in a chair and raise the toe of the front foot in a flex position to engage the hamstring. Hold for 20-30 seconds. Slowly return to the start position and repeat to the opposite side.
