Warm-up before the game
For a good game of Golf, you need to monitor your physical shape. Since the game involves constant bends, body turns, and muscle stretching, it’s best not to forget about the basic warm-up before the game. Of course, you won’t see any mention of this in the Golf rules. But most professionals still pay attention to their health to avoid injuries and sprains.
We have compiled an approximate set of exercises for all muscle groups that are involved in the game and need additional training.
Stretching for the chest and shoulder muscles
Stand straight, back straight, legs shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Connect your hands in a lock behind your back and perform hand lifts until you feel pain. Make sure that the neck does not strain. Fix the movement of your hands at the top and bottom of the exercise for a few seconds.
Pay attention to the lower back
Lying on your back, on the floor, grab your knees with both hands and pull them up to your chest. If you perform the exercise correctly, you will feel the tension of the muscles in the lumbar region. Hold this position for 10-15 seconds.
Exercises for the legs
All basic yoga exercises, squats, and running are suitable for strengthening and stretching your legs.
No one can argue with the effectiveness of squats. Stand up straight, feet shoulder-width apart, bend your knees, and start squatting. You can use additional weights for weighting. Squats on one leg: stand up straight, hands on the belt, put one leg on a chair. Perform squats on the supporting leg. Keep your balance.
Lunges are also great for developing your legs. To do this, stand up straight, step one foot forward, and leave the other in the starting position. Slightly bend the leg that is in front and sit down. Change your legs and repeat the exercise. You can use weights to increase efficiency.
For the calves of your legs, you can perform a yoga exercise “dog face down” or this combination: sit on the floor, back straight, legs stretched out in front of you. Reach for your feet with your hands. Don’t bend your knees! If stretching allows, grasp the toes of your feet and pull them slightly toward you.
Perform a warm-up before each game or every day in the morning or evening to maintain body tone. Be healthy!
