Cardiogolf’s Shortee Tutorial

Professional golfers know the importance of athletic development for golf. As a recreational, you may not have the time to train like an elite athlete, but by simply adding a few swing drills into your daily routine, you can dramatically improve your game.  And you don’t have to go to the golf course or driving range, you can do these exercises at home.

How to Set-Up to Shortee Club

Introducing the New GolfGym 23″ Shortee Training Club. Great for indoor swing training and off-season conditioning.

My friends at GolfGym were inspired by my Cardiogolf program and designed the New GolfGym 23″ Shortee Training Club for my students to practice indoors just like I do in Cardiogolf.

In Cardiogolf class, I use short practice clubs to do exercises and swing drills.  The club is short for a couple of reasons:

  • the short club is easy to swing indoors without hitting the walls or ceilings
  • the clubhead is closer to your hands, so it is easy to monitor the clubface and learn how to square the face at impact
  • since you are not hitting balls with the short club, there is no judgement of where the ball goes, so you can work on your technique without getting frustrated
  • the club is lighter than a regular club, so you can learn to swing the club faster to develop clubhead speed

Making practice swings will not only tone your muscle and burn some calories, but the act of swinging over and over again can help you improve your swing technique and improve muscular endurance.

Our practice swings are usually smoother, longer and more on-plane with better tempo than our real swings.  As you make practice swings, you can focus on making certain motions to improve technique such as making a fuller shoulder turn, keeping your spine angle throughout the swing and shifting your weight correctly.

As you make practice swings, you can swing faster than you usually do to help you get used to swinging faster to improve clubhead speed. As you make practice swings, you can work on certain moves in your swing without worrying where the ball is going.

A few things to think about while you are making your practice swings…

  • Look down at where a ball would be and try to simulate hitting a ball as much as possible
  • Work on your swing fundamentals.  Monitor your posture, alignment, ball position and grip to make sure they are correct
  • Keep your head level throughout your swing
  • Complete each practice swing by holding your finish for a moment, as if you were watching your ball fly down the fairway
  • Imagine the perfect golf shot as you swing
  • Finish in balance
  • Start each swing from the beginning; don’t swing back and forth continuously
  • Make each swing as if you were hitting a real shot

Cardiogolf Drills-A New Way to Practice

Visit Cardiogolf.com to download the FREE Cardiogolf Pre-Round Warm Up Routine E-Book.

In the Cardiogolf Video Series, available at Cardiogolf.com, you get  drills and exercises to help you improve your swing technique and get a great workout at the same time.

Making practice swings instead of hitting balls is a better way to improve your swing technique.  If you are trying to learn the swing or make a swing change, rehearsing the move without hitting a ball will assure that you are actually doing the correct move.  Repeating the motion that you want to achieve will help ingrain the move into your real swing.

In this drill, watch Karen and Christina Ricci from Golf Survival Guides, demonstrate how taking practice swings with just your front arm only can help you improve your swing technique and develop strength in your upper body.

Front Arm Only Drill
  1. Set-up to hit a shot, holding club with just your front hand.
  2. Make a backswing and follow-through, simulating the golf swing as much as possible.
  3. Keep your front arm extended on the backswing and then let it fold on the follow-through.
  4. Make sure that the shaft touches your front shoulder as you finish your swing.
  5. Do 8 to 10 repetitions.

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.
