5-Minute Cardiogolf Break-Uphill Lie Drill

This is your Cardiogolf 5-minute workout break where we work on your golf swing and exercise at same time.

In my opinion, daily practice is the key to success towards any goal.  Making 10 practice swings a day or exercising  for 5 minutes everyday will get you playing better and in better shape than  exercising or practicing for two or three hours once a week. First of all, it is always hard to find big chunks of time to do massive workouts or beat balls on the driving range.  Secondly, the long workouts or practice sessions usually lead to fatigued swings, injuries and ingrained bad habits.

There is something to be said about the momentum of taking small daily steps towards a goal that is cumulatively better than taking big steps with less frequency.

Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge

When you play golf, you almost never have a completely flat lie on the golf course like you do at the practice range.  It may be difficult to recreate those sidehill, downhill and uphill lies on the practice range, but you can do it at  the gym or at home.

Simply taking practice swings with your stance at different levels can help prepare you for how it will feel on the golf course.  Use a step or bench to simulate the uneven slope.  Start with an uphill lie. Place your front foot on the bench so that you simulate an uphill lie.

The idea is to make a full turn and weight shift despite the restriction you may feel because of the uneven stance.

Uphill Lie
  1. Simulate an uphill lie by placing your front foot on a step or bench.
  2. Lean your weight slightly towards your back foot and hold a club or hand weight as if you were going to hit a shot.
  3. Swing to the top and stop to make sure that your weight is loaded into your back leg. Feel the weight on the inside of the back foot and keep the back knee slightly flexed.
  4. Rehearse your backswing for 8 to 10 repetitions.

Cardiogolf Training Package Launched

Take Your Practice Indoors with the Cardiogolf Shortee Practice Club and Training Video Package.

MOORESVILLE, NC, Aug. 3, 2017-LPGA Master Teaching Professional and Certified Personal Trainer Karen Palacios-Jansen has teamed up with GolfGym, the premier golf-fitness training product company, to create a package to help golfers practice their swing indoors. The package includes the Cardiogolf 23” Shortee Training Club, designed short to swing indoors, and 20 training videos, including drills and exercises to help golfers of all levels improve their swing technique and get some exercise at the same time.

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.

Introducing the Shortee Practice Training Club and Cardiogolf Instructional Videos. Great for indoor swing training and off-season conditioning. When you purchase the Shortee Practice Training Club you’ll receive Cardiogolf Instructional Videos to download and follow on your computer, tablet or smart phone.

The New Cardiogolf Shortee Training Club & 20 Video Series includes drills and exercises to help golfers improve their technique and no ball is required.  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.

Watch the videos and simply follow along as Karen takes you through a battery of drills to help you improve your game and get some exercise at the same time.

Visit cardiogolf.com or golfgym.com to get your Shortee Practice Training Club and Cardiogolf Training Video Series.
