Practice swings can help reinforce sound golf swing fundamentals and mechanics. Making practice swings can also get you into positions that you may not otherwise be able to get into when you swing at a ball full speed.
Watch Karen Palacios-Jansen demonstrate the Cardiogolf Swing Positions using a small Pilates ball. It is a great exercise to do at home or in the gym to rehearse your swing.
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.
Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge

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. Follow Cardiogolf Fuel on instagram- @cardiogolf_fuel
