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.
- Simulate an uphill lie by placing your front foot on a step or bench.
- Lean your weight slightly towards your back foot and hold a club or hand weight as if you were going to hit a shot.
- 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.
- Rehearse your backswing for 8 to 10 repetitions.
