Cardiogolf Makes an Appearance on Golf Channel Morning Drive

Visit Cardiogolf.com to download the FREE Cardiogolf Pre-Round Warm Up Routine E-Book.

For many of us, we used to be able to hop out of the car, go straight to the first tee and rip a drive down the middle of the fairway. Now by skipping a warm-up before a round of golf may mean it takes us 4 or 5 holes before you loosen up and gain your form and by that time your score may already be ruined.

Here is a quick and easy pre-round warm-up routine to help you avoid those big numbers on the scorecard. The point of a warm up is to elevate your heart rate to get your blood flowing to warm muscles so they are loose and supple to make it is easier to swing.

You can do this warm-up at your house before your round of golf, if you don’t have a long drive to the golf course or on the driving range. Don’t be embarrassed to do the routine, it couldn’t more humiliating than topping your drive off the first tee.

Watch Karen Palacios-Jansen and Christina Ricci, LPGA Teaching Professionals, demonstrate the warm-up exercises.

There are many ways to warm-up like jogging, doing jumping jacks or even taking practice swings. In this routine, that only takes 5 to 10 minutes, I have chosen 5 exercises that target golf-specific muscles.

Watch Karen demonstrate how to practice indoors.

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

My friends at GolfGym were inspired by my Cardiogolf program and designed the New GolfGym 23″ Shortee Training Club for my students to practice indoors just like I do in Cardiogolf.

Cardiogolf video series includes drills and exercises to help golfers of all levels improve their swing technique and get some exercise at the same time.

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.

Master LPGA Teaching Professional Karen Palacios-Jansen demonstrates swing drills and exercises in this video series that can be done at home with minimal equipment. Using the Shortee Practice Training Club, Karen takes you through a batter of exercises to improve your game and get some exercise at the same time.
