Exercise of the Week: Golf Warm Up

Posted: August 31, 2012 in Golf, Video

Hey everyone!

Here is my exercise of the week, or should I say exercise series of the week.  CLICK ON THE YOUTUBE LINK BELOW…OR THIS LINK  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aJBadSHrUQ&feature=youtu.be

Hopefully the sound quality is better this week.  However, we filmed the video sideways with the iPad, so I had to use a program to flip it back.  As a result the picture is a little small.  Also, I am no actor…so my on camera skills are not great, but not bad for the second week.  So, my appologies for thses things!

Hopefully you will find this warm up series helpful in your golf endeavours.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when warming up for golf:

Active Dynamic Stretching–static stretching is great for working on flexibility after an exercise bout or long before the exercise bout.  However, soon before a round of golf dynamic stretching will better prepare you for your golf outing.

What you Need to Warm Up- Hips, Spine, Shoulders and Legs- In order to rotate through your swing a great deal of pressure and torque is put on your Hips, Spine, Shoulders and Hamstrings.  Make sure these are good and warmed up!

Hitting a Few Balls- Hitting a few balls IS NOT A WAMR UP!
