Golfers sometimes get a bad rap. While the game of golf isn’t fast-paced, it still requires movement and weight-bearing activity, sometimes for hours at a time. That can be a great workout, but don’t underestimate the strain that 18 holes of golf can put on your body.
To avoid strains and sprains and get the most out of your days on the golf course, our fitness specialists suggest some light stretching to maximize flexibility and help prevent injury. Add some weekly strengthening moves that target the core and upper body to maximize power and control behind your swing.
These golf-specific stretching movements from EXOS can help improve your performance and reduce your risk of injury. Take your game even further by signing up for our Gear Up for Golf classes or talk with a Sports Performance Coach about how you can improve your game with some functional movement training.
With just a little preparation, your golf score—and your waistline—could shrink this year, helping you become healthier and more proficient at the game you love. Don’t forget to hydrate!
