Pre-Season Check Points-Alignment

If you live in the Southeast like I do, golf season has already started.  The warm weather pushes people outside and on to the golf course.  To start your season out right, do a few quick fundamental checks to make sure that you start your golf season on the right track.

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

Quick Alignment Check

  1. Aim down your target line.
  2. Place a club along your foot line.
  3. Your feet should  not align at your target.  If  your feet are pointing directly at your target or any other direction except for parallel to target line,  you will have to make swing compensations.
  4. You need to adjust your set up until you are aligned correctly.

Cardiogolf Non-Dominant Side Workout

Golf is a one-sided sport.  We set up to the ball on the same side  every single time, we turn back behind the ball in the same direction every single time and then we follow-through in the same direction every single time and we do this for hundreds of repetitions, at high speeds, for hours at a time.  It’s no wonder many golfers suffer injuries, aches and pains.

If you are a right-handed golfer, your dominant side (right) is stronger, more flexible and more coordinated than your non-dominant side (left).  The opposite for left-handed golfer.  The problem with this is that the dominant may take over in the golf swing and cause swing faults that can lead to swing compensations and injuries.

Studies show that focusing on training your non-dominant side can accelerate your improvement.  The same study says that the combination of core and non-dominant arm strength exercises can provide a more effective specialized training program than core alone training for golfers to increase their drive distances.

Check out my non-dominant side exercises that I incorporate into my Cardiogolf classes to improve strength, flexibility and coordination on my weaker side.

Fitness and Game Improvement Program

Professional golfers know the importance of athletic development for golf. As a recreational golfer, 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.

Hi, I am Karen Palacios-Jansen, creator of Cardiogolf. I have been teaching golf and fitness for more than 20 years. A few year ago, I decided to combine the two, together, into a unique fitness and game improvement program to help golfers increase strength, flexibility, endurance and swing technique and no golf ball is required. You know you need to exercise for better health, so if you are a golfer, why not work on your golf swing and get some exercise at the same time.

To do the Cardiogolf routines, you need a few pieces of equipment like hand weights, medicine balls and a step. You also need some space to swing a real golf club or short practice club and then you simply follow my cues as I take you through a battery of drills to help you improve your game and get some exercise at the same time.

Get ready to shape up your swing and trim your score with Cardiogolf.
