The most common injury that happens while golfing is muscle strains and pains in the lower back. The golf swing puts a tremendous amount of stress on the back and upper body due to the torquing of the torso over a stable lower body. The stronger and more flexible the upper body; the less chance of injury and the better swing control.
The FITREV experts have come up with 3 key fitness equipment pieces that any serious golfer should have.
#1 Stretch Trainer
Using the Precor 240i Stretch Trainer will condition flexibility all while stretching the muscles and improving the golfers range of motion. Learn more about the Precor Stretch Trainer.
#2 FTS Glide Functional Trainer
The FTS Glide offers resistance training designed with a compact footprint and low height to fit any fitness facility. The FTS Glide is easy to use and provides resistance training. Learn more about the Precor FTS Glide Functional Trainer.
#3 Work Out Bands or Cables
This type of exercise equipment has been custom fitted to golfers looking to improve their swing. Select cables are available that incorporate a shortened club where there would normally be a handle. Using these cables strengthens muscles and perfects the range of motion while also stabilizing balance.
Regular golfers and even newcomers to the sport quickly learn that having a strong core is the ultimate way to improve their game. If you are an avid golfer or have just taken up the sport, FITREV suggests trying these three pieces of equipment before your next round of golf. We’re certain you’ll notice a difference. Next time you’re on the green, pay attention to what muscles you are using for that swing and think of how changes in your posture, balance and strength could improve your results.
