For professional golfers who want to improve or maintain their golfing skills, they need do some daily exercises and make it their top priority. Most of the golfers’ bodies have its weakest part called the core that needs to be in great form. Without strong and pliable muscles in your stomach, butt, hips, and lower back, you can’t make a perfect golf swing. You can actually do some daily exercises at home that can help develop core strength, upper body, and lower body. When you do home exercises daily to enhance your golf game, you’ll become more interested in playing golf at some of your favorite golf courses in Branson.
The first exercise you need to do to help enhance your golf game is to build core strength. To do this, you need to increase muscle tone in the abdomen and back. Core strength can generate more power from the coiling action in your backswing. Leg lifts and stomach crunches are classic abdomen strengtheners, but isometric exercises can be done anytime. To build your core strength, tighten your stomach muscles for 60 seconds. By lying flat on your back, arms out to the side is another good core exercise. From that position, bring your knees to your chest and gently roll your knees to one side and then the other without lifting your shoulders off the floor.
The muscles of the upper body are more critical in generating speed than the arm muscles below the elbows. Some upper body exercise that you can do include pushups, bicep curls and triceps extensions. Start lifting light weights of 2-lb. dumbbells by lying flat on the floor on your back, with your arms extended away from your body. Place a weigh in each of your hand and lift your arms off the ground without bending your elbows and point them toward the ceiling until they are perpendicular to your body.
By sitting on the edge of a sturdy couch or heavy chair is a good exercise to strengthen arms using your own body weight. Place your palms flat down on the chair on either side of your buttocks. With your feet flat on the floor, bend your knees and move your buttocks forward and off the chair. Then lower yourself toward the floor, while bending your arms. Raise yourself back up by using your arms instead of your legs.
Many of the golfers think that because they swing the club with their arms, the strength of lower body isn’t that important. Here’s an easy-to-follow exercise that can help enhance the strength of lower body. Stand with your back and shoulders flat against the wall. Keep your feet about one foot away from the wall. Bend your knees and slide down the wall as if you were sitting in a chair. Then hold for 60 seconds.
So, if you want to play golf at some of your favorite golf courses in Branson, try to do some daily exercises at home to help enhance your golf game.
