A Valuable Golf Exercise In Your Office When You Have A Moment
Golf exercise is not necessarily in a gym. Getting creative with what you have can make all the difference and have a very positive impact on your game.
Even extremely busy executives can get 15 seconds at a time while seated at their computer or work station in the office, for some golf exercise.
There are actually many different stretch golf exercises you can get done in your office, here is one.
I call it the seated twist golf exercise. Sit upright in your chair with your chest high and back straight. Reach behind you with one arm, which will rotate your upper body. While staying erect, twist as far as you can go and hold. You can then twist the other way and repeat.
Go both sides 2-3 times, holding for 10 seconds. This is a very effective golf exercise for eliminating or even reducing back pain and at the same time tremendously improving your backswing and follow through range of motions. The result will be a much better swing, higher club head speed and much more distance.
There are numerous other golf exercises that can easily be done from the comfort of your office or home, which will have a major impact on your game because they help develop muscles and parts of your body that you need for various stages of the golf swing.
Other golf exercises involve the use of simple equipment or products designed specifically to help correct certain weaknesses in your golf game. So the best approach is to identify what your major weakness in the game currently is. An expert in golf conditioning can then recommend the best product that will give you the golf exercise most vital to correct the particular weakness you want to eliminate.
Golf exercises are a very important part of the modern golf game that cannot be ignored.
