Great Golf Stretch To Warm up For Your Game

Great Golf Stretch To Warm up For Your Game

By Susan Hill

Many of you want to warm up before golf, but you're not quite sure what to do.

Hopefully, today's tip from Susan Hill at Body for Golf will bring some clarity.

Golf Warm Up

According to a study produced by the British Journal of Sports Medicine, a dynamic
warm up can have a significant impact on your clubhead speed.

In fact, following a study conducted on 20 golfers of matching gender, age and handicap,
it appears those who performed dynamic warm up stretches as opposed to those who did
nothing before play, clubhead speed was increased by over 24%!

Studies similar to the one just mentioned have shown that the best way to warm up
just prior to a round of golf is through the use of dynamic stretches.

Dynamic stretches are those that keep the body in constant motion. They are not
stretches which you hold for 10, 20 or even 30 seconds.

These are stretches you hold for no more than 1 to 2 seconds and keep your body
temperature warm with fluid movements.

Take a look at one of my favorite "on course" stretches below. Try it this weekend
and see what you think.

To perform this exercise...Place both hands over your head while grasping the club
slightly further than shoulder width apart. Cross left leg over the top of right leg
and bend forward from the hip while keeping a straight back. Hold for the count of
1-2 seconds, then switch legs. Repeat this stretch about 10 times.
