Exercise, Exercise, Exercise for Golf

By: David Webster

Many golfers both professional and non professional know that in order to be at the top of their game they need to warm up, this is important for every golfer and can keep the body from being injured from pulled muscles and strains. Many of the exercises are important for blood flow to the arms, shoulders, and back, while they also warm the muscles. They are very simple and are not taxing to the body and will not tire the body out before going out on the golf course. Most of these exercises are either range of motion exercises or they are bends and squats which all will help the body from injuries such as muscle pull, strains, and even sprains. Those embarking on Golf Holidays may like to read this carefully!
One exercise that is very easy and will at the same time help your golf game is to stand with the feet apart, take one arm and stretch it across the body, while standing straight.

Try to rise it straight to the opposite shoulder take the hand of the other arm and hold this arm for about fifteen seconds. This will help to stretch the muscles and limber the shoulders and should be done fifteen times on each side.
The back is a problem for many people, and so back exercises are very important for some people that are easy, while still effective. Lower backstretches are not difficult, yet they can be a tremendous benefit to the back suffer; lie flat on the back on a hard surface such as the floor. While lying flat, slowly raise you leg in a bent position so that you are able to hold the knee, and hold this knee for about ten seconds, this should be done ten to fifteen times and then switch to the other side.
Another easy exercise is a chest stretch, it helps to take away tension, and therefore it is not only good for your golf game but it will just plain make your body feel better. Standing with your feet slightly apart to form a line with your hips holding your hands behind your back raise them until you feel a stretching feeling in your chest. Hold this position for ten seconds; this should be done about ten to fifteen times for the full relief of body tension.
Though these are simple exercises they have great benefits to the body of the golfer as well as the non-golfer. Once you've got your exercise sorted you need to book your golf holiday. Why not consider a three day break at either Avisford park or Belton Woods.
