Make sure that you ALWAYS stretch before going out to the driving range and play. Going out and hitting balls “cold” is not a good idea, plus it will normally take about 5 or 6 holes before you start to feel “in the groove”. Not to mention, it’s easy to pull a muscle. Getting off to a good start makes a round of golf much more enjoyable.
Here’s a proper stretch Warm up which hits the major muscle groups: Legs, Hips, and Upper Torso, that will get your body stretched out and ready to play, and takes just a few minutes. This should also be used for your Post Game Cool Down Stretch… BEFORE the 19th hole. It’ll also be much easier reaching for the cash that you win from your buddies.
Posture Problem #1: Upper Back & Neck
Upper back and neck problems have become an epidemic in our culture. Common among dentists and others who bend over too much, our neck begins to carry the brunt of our weight. Follow this simple program and get your neck and back – back!
Posture Problem #2: Hands
Our hands are involved in nearly everything we do. But, they don’t operate as independently as you might think. The truth is, the shoulders and elbows dictate a lot of the function of the hands. Get “Hands On” with this program, and you should get a “hand”le on your hands.
Posture Problem #3: Feet
Got foot problems? If you do, your foot strike probably isn’t landing properly. If your foot isn’t in harmony with your knee and hip, you’re probably going to have some foot problems. It may be time to “Put your foot down” and do this program.
Posture Problem #4: Legs
Our legs were designed to move us around, all day long. Oops, something happened the last few decades and we’re not moving them as much, simply because we sit down way too much. The result, tight and weak legs. Get them back with this program.
Posture Problem #5: Knees
Did you know that most knee problems are really due to hip misalignment? This fragile joint takes a beating by all the pounding and torque that’s put upon it. This sequence will help get your knees back in alignment and allow them to do their job.
Posture Problem #6: Hips
Our “Sitting Down” culture puts a tremendous burden on our hips. Once our hips get out of position, every joint in our body is affected. Do the sequence outlined here, and you’re sure to “Get Hip”.
Posture Problem #7: Rounded Shoulders
Almost everybody in our culture fights with rounded shoulders and the ear way out in front of your center line. The front muscles of the body are too tight and they pull your shoulders forward. If you just isolate your upper body when stretching, you won’t get adequate results. Follow the sequence in order and you’ll be walking straight and proud.
