Now that the season is fully underway itâ€™s best to make sure that we all remember the â€œbasicsâ€ to a healthy round. Pre-Golf stretches should be incorporated into everyoneâ€™s routine. It is the key to a successful golf swing and is something that most players donâ€™t feel is necessary. As our flexibility decreases we are predisposed to injury. Without stretching more injury will occur. Golf involves repetitive twisting and rotation of the trunk which will in turn put a shearing stress on the spine increasing injury. Most people who play 1-2 rounds a week do not bother to warm-up beforehand and soon have injuries.
Some Pre-golf stretches:
1. Side Bending
Stand up straight with feet shoulder width apart and arms at your side. Bend to the right letting your right arm slide down the outside of your thigh, keeping your hips facing forward. Your left arm should lean overhead to the right. Keep both feet on the floor and feel a stretch along the left torso/trunk. Hold for a count of 10 and repeat 3 times on each side
2. Upper Body Trunk Rotation
Stand up straight with feet shoulderâ€™s width apart and arms bent at elbows, holding a golf club behind your head (a 7 iron works good). Twist your body toward the right and hold for 10 sec then twist to the left and hold. Repeat 3 times.
3. Shoulder Stretch
Grab your club in front of you with your hands crossed. The bottom hand palm up and the top hand palm down. With the bottom hand push the club in the direction of the top hand. Feel a stretch in the back of your shoulder. Hold each for a count of 10 and repeat 3 times. Then switch hand positions and repeat.
Just remember these stretches are just the beginning to a less painful round. Following weeks of daily stretches you will see that your swing mechanics have also improved with greater alignment and improved flexibility. Look for more stretches to come next weekâ€¦
