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.

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.
