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 and 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.

Simply taking practice swings can help you develop feel for the correct positions in the golf swing. As you place your hands on the club, try to simulate your real grip and set-up as much as possible. Swing the club, feeling the weight of the clubhead, to develop feel, tempo and strength. Visual a smooth swing and see your ball fly down the fairway.

Use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Clubto practice everyday.  If you don’t have room to swing a regular golf indoors or you can’t make it to the golf course or driving range, use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Clubto practice anywhere and at anytime.

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.

Simply taking practice swings with one arm at a time can help you develop feel for the correct positions in the golf swing. As you place one hand on the club, try to simulate your real grip and set-up as much as possible. Swing the club with one arm, feeling the weight of the clubhead to develop feel, tempo and strength.

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.

In Cardiogolf, we do a variety of lunges in different planes of motion. The Lunge with Rotation exercise works the muscles differently than other lunge variations. All are good to help increase strength and mobility in lower lower body.

Watch Karen Palacios-Jansen, LPGA Teaching Professional, demonstrate how to demonstrate this exercise.

The Lunge with Rotation exercise incorporates two important movements in the golf swing. Benefits of the lunge exercise include developing strength and stability in your lower body. The twisting part of the exercise teaches you to rotate over the resistance of your lower body just like what you need to do in the golf swing.

Lunge with Rotation
  • Hold a club at both end with hands and extend your arms.
    Lunge forwards with your right leg, keeping your knee aligned with your toes.
  • As you lunge, simultaneously sweep the club across to the side of the forward knee. Simulate a row motion.
  • Return to the start position and repeat on the opposite leg.
  • Do 8 to 10 repetitions on each leg.
