I believe in order to win you over as a customer, I need to show you the goods.. I admit I’m not like most of the other golf fitness guys out there. I’m just like you, skeptical..
You should be.. I see all kinds of crazy things out there being promoted that won’t do anything to lower your score.
I’m not about giving quick fixes or magic pillz (I’ve seen some hucksters selling and pitching vitaminz that will make you a damn near scratch golfer)… I’ll leave that to the guys who only care about taking your money.
My stuff is real… anyone can do it. The proof is in the pudding..
Down below, I give you some quality stretching techniques that are just a small portion of my 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less golf fitness system. Try them. Use them. See for yourself how they work.
Traveling can be a real bummer on your workouts, eating healthy, and your back (ouch).
Cramped up in an airplane or car for hours on end is bad for you.. not to mention lugging around golf clubs, luggage, and your laptop.
To stretch yourself out and get your body back properly aligned I’ve devised a little stretching routine for you to do before your workouts on trips.
I believe the most important aspect to playing golf well is flexibility.
When we travel we are usually sitting for hours and hours… this can tighten up muscles and lock up your back and neck…
If you have enough space to lie in a plank position on the floor, we have enough room to stretch and workout (I got a great travel workout you can add to the stretching – check your inbox tomorrow).
If we have enough room.. no excuses…
let’s do this..
Any golf workout that’s any good demands a pretty good dynamic stretching routine to warm you up.
Again, these are borrowed from my 30 Yards or More in 30 Days or Less Golf Fitness System…
2. Spine Rotation w/Club
3. Chest Stretch
4. Backswing Angel
5. Downward Facing Dog
- Lie prone on the floor. Stretch your legs back, tops of the feet on the floor. Spread your hands on the floor under your shoulders. Hug the elbows back into your body.
- Press the tops of the feet and thighs and the pubis firmly into the floor.
- On an inhalation, begin to straighten the arms to lift the chest off the floor, going only to the height at which you can maintain a connection through your pubis to your legs. Press the tailbone toward the pubis and lift the pubis toward the navel. Narrow the hip points. Firm but don’t harden the buttocks.
- Firm the shoulder blades against the back, puffing the side ribs forward. Lift through the top of the sternum but avoid pushing the front ribs forward, which only hardens the lower back. Distribute the backbend evenly throughout the entire spine.
Spine Rotation w/Club
- Sit in a chair with feet & hips planted solidly.
- Slowly turn your trunk clockwise and counterclockwise.
- Make sure your head moves with your torso.
- Stand with your arm out-stretched and hand pressed against a wall or support.
- Rotate your hips and feet away from your arm, to increase the stretch felt across the chest muscle. Hold that position for 20 seconds and then repeat for the other side.
- Place the roller or a rolled up towel along the spine from the base of the skull to the tail bone. The knees should be bent and feet flat on floor.
- Allow your pelvis and shoulders to roll in opposite directions on the roller.
Downward Facing Dog
- Really focus on calf muscles and try to get heels to touch floor. This may take time, but is integral in helping to create more power, length, and tension in your swing.
- Come to your hands and knees with the wrists underneath the shoulders and the knees underneath the hips.
- Curl the toes under and push back raising the hips and straightening the legs.
- Spread the fingers and ground down from the forearms into the fingertips.
- Outwardly rotate the upper arms broadening the collarbones.
- Let the head hang, move the shoulder blades away from the ears towards the hips.
- Engage the quadriceps strongly to take the weight off the arms, making this a resting pose.
- Rotate the thighs inward, keep the tail high and sink your heels towards the floor.
P.S. Tomorrow, I deliver the actual workout component you add at the end of the above stretching routine…
get ready to sweat!
