by : Mike Pedersen, Cpt

Strength for golf is a term you've all heard by now. It's allover the television during professional tournaments, and golfinstructors are now throwing the term around.

What makes strength for golf so important and why should youlisten?

Let me briefly explain.

The golf swing is traumatic to the body! I can't put it anysimpler than that. When you are swing an object that is over 3feet long at over 85 mph, there is a physical cost.

The physical cost is undo stress on the major joints of thebody. The lower back is the most common area to get injured,along with the hips, shoulders, knees and even wrists.

If your body is physically weak and restricted (low level offlexibility), you will have a minimal chance at playing goodgolf and staying injury-free as well.

How many times have you gone to the range or the course, only tocome home with your lower back stiff, aching or in pain? Whatabout other body parts? I'll be you've felt your hip joints ormaybe even your shoulder joints at some point.

If you saw a slow motion video of the human body swinging aclub, you'd be shocked. The body is put in some torquedpositions throughout the swing. When the body is weak it breaksdown. That's a fact!

In comes strength for golf!

By working your golf specific muscles, you will not only improveyour swing mechanics quickly, but your game will transform. Youwill feel like a different golfer on the course. Your playingpartners will be in awe.

You may think I'm hyping this up, but all the above is true! Youwill quickly realize this has been the missing link to your golfgame improvement all along. And don't ever think it's too lateto start a program of strength for golf
