Most country clubs are closed on Mondays to give the staff a rest and do golf course maintenance. So Mondays are a good day to do your cross training. The principle of cross training for golfers is to improve mobility, flexibility, stability, balance, strength, endurance, and power to help create a profienct swing. Cross training is something other than swinging the golf club.
Karen’s Class Schedule
The repetitive nature of the golf swing can lead to muscle imbalances, sore joints and muscles and injury. When you swing at a ball, the body is continually replicating the same movement with force that can lead to developing a series of opposing strengths and weaknesses.
For this reason it is important to cross-train and do exercises that help balance out your muscles. But not just any exercises: you need to do balancing exercises.
According to Robin Long, Pilates expert, imbalances often go unnoticed, and therefore un-corrected, because many traditional exercise regimens don’t incorporate single-side exercises. Many times our stronger side does the majority of the work in a given exercise and we don’t even know it. Consequently, our stronger side gets stronger and our weaker side gets weaker. In Pilates, you will do a variety of single-side exercises where you can control the amount of repetitions and resistance to balance the opposing side.
Pilates uses controlled movements, focusing on your core muscles to build body strength, flexibility and endurance. It’s a total body conditioning routine to help you strengthen, lengthen and tone muscles without high impact movements. It is a perfect regimen for golfers.
