If you have any tightness or inflexibility in your neck area, you will have a hard time completing a full shoulder turn and you may take your eye off the ball as you swing back. This may result in raising your body up or standing up as you swing back or using excessive hand and arm motion causing a faulty clubface.
If your tendency is to lift your head, take your eye off the ball, have an incomplete shoulder turn or have an abbreviated finish, it is important to incorporate neck flexibility exercises into your daily routine to not only improve your swing mechanics, but also prevent injury.
- Sit upright on a ball or chair, maintaining good posture and looking forward.
- Slowly rotate your head to the right as far as you can and hold the position for a moment.
- Slowly return to the start position and then slowly rotate your head to the left as far as you can and hold position for a moment.
- Alternate rotating your head from side to side for 8 to 10 repetitions.
- Do 2 to 3 sets.
Stay On-Course with Your Health and Wellness
Cardiogolf teams up with Zija International, the leaders in the Natural Health Revolution, to offer golfers of all abilities cutting-edge health and wellness products.
Would you change the way you eat if you knew certain foods could help you play better golf?
Managing your food intake, hydration levels and adding certain nutrients to your diet can not only help you concentrate and focus more on the golf course, but it can also help you keep your heartbeat steady as you make an important shot or putt, help your muscles fire faster for more power, help you fight fatigue so you can play and practice longer and even help you keep your cool after a bad shot. More importantly good nutrition is good for your overall health and well-being.
We all know the importance that fitness, swing mechanics and equipment can have on our golf games, but are you eating the right foods to sustain enough energy throughout your round to play your best golf? The best equipment in the world won’t make a difference if you don’t have energy to get you around the course. We do not hear as much about nutrition for golf, but rest assured that the most elite golfers of the world follow some sort of diet to provide them with the energy-output they need to play their best. While is it not yet the norm for golfers to follow a specialized nutrition program, it will soon become so.
By simply adding a few Zija products into your daily routine and making simple diet modifications, you can dramatically improve your golf game and more importantly your health and well-being.
Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge
