Staying Flexible Focused on the Course

RSS

Welcome to our new 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!
 
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!
 
Lets get started!
 
Cart Hamstring Stretch
Cart Hamstring Stretch

Place your heel atop the wheelbase and place the corresponding hand on your bag for balance. Flexing your foot and keeping your knee slightly bent, lean forward at the waist until you feel the stretch. Hold this stretch for 20 to 30 seconds before repeating the process with the opposite foot.
