Best Workouts to Improve Your Golf Game: Tips from Bella Collina’s Golf Pro
Every athlete needs a good workout plan that highlights the physical demands of their chosen sport. In this respect, there are certain workouts that can help improve your golf game and enhance performance. Bella Collina is heavily invested in golf, after all we have a beautiful community centered around this sport. Instead of the run-of-the-mill workout plans, we decided to glean insight on the best workouts to improve your golf game from Bella Collina's very own, Jim Kroll, Director of Golf and PGA Professional.
Flexibility is Your Friend
When it comes to flexibility you might think this granular detail is not necessarily the most pressing physical highlight. We all know details matter and flexibility is certainly a detail worth exploring. “Flexibility is perhaps the most important aspect of making a correct and full golf swing. Poor flexibility can be very detrimental to the development of a repeatable swing that utilizes the body's full potential.”
Partaking in routine stretches that highlight flexibility is an excellent start. Flexibility allows for full range of motion, which allows you to reach maximum potential in strength and speed.
Make Warmups Mandatory
Oftentimes we jump into physical activity without warming up. Akin to stretches, a warm-up always feels like an afterthought or something we do if we have a little time before an activity. However, in golfing a pre-round warm-up is essential.
“A proper pre-round warm-up routine is a key element to improving your performance on the golf course. Many golfers who dismiss warming up as a waste of time or who are pressed for time, rarely take advantage of simple exercises that can engage essential muscle groups which help to increase mobility in preparation for golf swings on the course.”
The next time you step on a course remember to schedule some additional time in advance for a pre-round warm-up. The good news is you’re giving yourself more time to golf!
