Are you happy with how your golf swing feels? A loose, free swing requires healthy muscles, joints and connective tissues. Sitting for extended periods of time every day doesn’t help. But with a few good habits you can improve your movement and flexibility, and free your swing.
If you sit most of the day, take a break every 30 minutes to get up, walk around and stretch. Just a minute or two goes a long way.
Get into a targeted stretch routine. Especially important for your golf swing are your shoulders, back, hip flexors, glutes and hamstrings.
Doing just 30 minutes of moderate load-bearing exercise, five days a week, gives your joints and muscles the stimulation they need to stay healthy.
Playing 18-holes of golf gets you at least 10,000 steps and burns more calories than running five miles. So on the days that you do enjoy a round of golf, you’re also doing a very good exercise. But on the days that you don’t play, make sure you stay active.
