The sad reality is for most us fitting anything else into your already busy schedule is tough. Factoring in your five day work week along with any other responsibilities, it makes it a lot harder for the average golfer to squeeze in additional time for fitness or stretching prior to their golf game. Leaving the office and going straight to the golf course is the usual scenario. Fitting in this extra step prior to playing can make a tremendous difference in how you feel and how you play.

With the amount of force that goes into every swing, you run the risk of injury if you do not prepare yourself prior to playing. As we get older our range of motion lessens which makes it that much more important to stretch prior to playing. Not to mention that it takes you four to five holes before you loosen up and gain your form, by this time your score may already be ruined….

Increasing strength and flexibility in your golf muscles is key, start a golf stretching program. This is also one of the quickest ways to improve your driving distance. Golf muscles that are tight or weak respond slowly and inefficiently. Speed and power comes with stronger and more flexible muscles.

Note: you should incorporate into your stretching routine simulation of the golf swing as much as possible.

When you generally take better care of yourself such as eating better and a fitness schedule of sorts, you feel better right? This also applies to your golf game, eating better and exercising on a regular basis will give you more energy and strength, therefore giving you better flexibility and more power to incorporate into your golf swing. Keeping in mind that your swing requires you to rotate, you should implement such golf exercises with the goal of increasing club speed, power and distance. Forearms, wrists and legs should be focused on as well.

The added bonus in adding fitness to your routine also helps with weight loss, helping to eliminate any extra stubborn pounds youve been trying to shed. What are you waiting for? Step up your golf game by incorporating a golf stretching program into your daily routine!

TIP: Playing golf is a great way to get some exercise. Walk the course instead of driving a cart, or even start with walking half the course if 18 holes is too much to walk! Remember the more you do it, the easier it gets so start walking the course today for better health.

Happy Golfing!

    hips and the feet pointing out like a duck.. I can’t squat properly cuz of
    lack of flexibility in my hips, knee and ankle. could you make a video on

    Another great video… I would like to see a video that helps stretch out
    ankles. My course is uncrowded, so we are allowed to walk with our bags.
    It’s a good workout, but when its time to hit, my ankles feel a little
    stiff. That or any other “on course stretches” would help a lot… Thanks!!

    Good video. As a college pitcher we would use bands to increase flexibility
    and posture in the same shoulder muscle groups. Frog crunches are a good
    way to help in the lower abdominal as well. I would like to see more
    medicine ball exercises related to golf.

    Nice vid gabe. Would using golf balls work? Not everybody has a lacrosse
    ball but since this is your channel I guess everybody would have an unused
    golf ball lying around somewhere.

    Tennis ball, foam roller or medicine ball would be better, i think golf
    ball might be to small. GO pickem up at at a local sports store only a few
    dollars.

    Gabe, for some reason I think you’ll make it onto the PGA Tour. Possibly
    it’s the comfortable swagger that is hard to notice but is un-mistakable,
    possibly the rhythmic swing that allows sweet strikes and long hits or the
    fact that you can improvise and hit tons of different shots. However, I
    can’t help but feel that someday I’ll hear the words ” And Gabriel Writer
    earns his first Green Jacket here at Augusta”, you’re different Gabe,
    you’re different.

    As a beginner, I’m struggling a lot with my lack of flexibility (among
    other things) which leads to soreness after rounds. So, I would enjoy a
    download on that!
