Cardiogolf 1000 Practice Swing Challenge

The challenge is straightforward-simply make 1000 practice swings, 30 swings a day, during the month to improve your swing technique and increase clubhead speed.  You don’t need to go to the driving range or golf course, you can simply make practice swings in your garage or living room at home a few minutes a day (just make sure that you don’t whack the ceiling or walls!)

If you don’t have enough room to swing a regular club, use the ‘Shortee Practice Training Club’ by GolfGym.  Click here for more information. 

Off-Course Fitness Tip-One Leg Standing Balance Test: Test balance and stability

This test measures your ability to stay balanced throughout your golf swing. If you are unable to perform this test, it is likely you will have difficulty holding a balanced finish and will be limited in the amount of force you can apply to the golf ball while maintaining good fundamentals.

On-Course Golf Tip-Quick Alignment Check

If you have a hard time aligning yourself up on the golf course, try this quick alignment check to assure you are aiming at your target.

  • Aim down your target line.
  • In your set up position, stay in your posture and simply point your front arm out as shown.
  • Your front arm should point parallel to your target line, not at your target.
  • If it is pointing directly at your target or any other direction except for parallel to target line, then you need to adjust your set up until you are aligned correctly.

Cardiogolf 18 Hole Balance Workout 003

Balance is important for the golf swing so that you can maintain your body angles throughout each phase of the swing.

Doing balance exercises can improve your balance capabilities within your golf swing especially at higher speeds.

If you have poor balance, you have to slow your swing speed down so you won’t lose your footing during your swing.

Simply practicing balancing on one leg can improve your nervous system’s ability to control your balance.  Practicing balancing on one leg in different planes of motion can further help your golf swing.

Traditional training methods tend to emphasize movement in one plane of motion.

The transverse plane is often neglected in exercise programs, so you want to seek out exercises that move you through all the planes of motion.
