Why Exercise Is Crucial In Achieving The Correct Golf Swing
Achieving the correct golf swing is the magic key that will open all the doors to better and more enjoyable golf.
However the correct golf swing becomes very difficult to pull off for one simple reason. And that is the fact that the body usually violently resists it. The reason is because the correct golf swing is a set of movements that the body finds extremely unnatural and uncomfortable. Thus the muscles all struggle to find comfort in the body and in the process a golfer finds it extremely difficult to achieve the correct golf swing with any degree of consistency.
Exercise has a tremendous effect in helping the body and all the muscles involved to find more comfort in the unnatural correct golf swing movements. In fact any exercise that will strengthen the numerous muscles necessary for the correct golf swing will have an impact. There are quite a number of muscles that are used in the correct golf swing. They range from muscles in the feet to the lower leg and right up to the hamstring and hip muscles. The lower back is an extremely important part of the body in executing the correct golf swing.
We then move up to other muscles in the back arms and neck.
A golf specific-exercise program will be much less strenuous and much more effective in helping a golfer to achieve consistent execution of the correct golf swing. This will usually involve both strength exercises as well as stretch exercises.
Another aspect that tends to interfere with the performance of a golfer is tiredness and fatigue after a brief session on the course. Golf is actually a sport that demands a lot of energy contrary to what many people believe. If your body is not conditioned, what will tend to happen is that your game will deteriorate as you continue playing.
Playing good golf will only happen when the body has enough endurance to last a long session of golf. Exercises play a major role in helping to achieve this and ensuring consistent correct golf swing techniques.
