If you play golf & don't spend time in the gym doing resistance training for golf, you are missing out the biggest portion of what could have been. Improved performance and injury prevention during both on & off season, both recreational golfers & professional golfers around the globe are doing what is known as functional fitness. Read how having a resistance training program can have a significant increase in both performance & preventing of injuries.
Improving your rotational power is one of the factors to your driving distance at the driving range. Golf kinematics includes rotational force & you can help improve this by improving strength & power for maximal strength. Weight training session should include power production for golf swing speed by implementing at least 2-3 weeks isokinetic training, training the body to improve muscle strength at the weakest of end range. This helps to promote more muscle fibers for both lower & upper body, improving ball speed when you play a golf game.
Elite golfers/professional golfers always look into the strength and power training program as this improves overall physical conditioning(physical fitness), & when plyometrics training program is in play, you have the body learn to decelerate force from the golf swing. This will help you decerase the rate of injury that many amateur golfers experience when they go for a golf drive performance(driving distance) test. Muscular strength
Rotational sports such as tennis and football are all rotated or thrown from the same side. It is mainly because of these reasons there can be significant alterations in length between a working or non-working arm. The golf swing usually takes place from a single side of the body, & if left untrained, it can cause imbalance between the nonworking side of a player and this causes the player to become vulnerable. Despite its importance, strength training can be useful in minimizing asymmetries. Resistance training is important for not only pre-elite golfers but to anyone who needs to maintain or improve sports performance and injury prevention.
Muscle & Movements Golfers Must Train
The golf swing differs from most rotational sporting movements as the feet are fixed to the ground throughout the swing. The club heads speed of the pros can go from 80 to 300 mph. Specially for mature golfers who wants to improve driver performance & prevent injuries to happen, you need to improve your body's elasticity & joint mobility. Adding in multiple planes of movement in your strength training programme will greatly enhance your experience of the game.
A golf swing speed, driving performance, grip strength, & lead arm speed/ lead arm acceleration is just some fo the few things to factor in when trying to improve your performance. We factor stretch rate when producing force & deceleration as most of the power that will be produced, needs to decelerate! Meet our sports medicine team who can help you show where you can improve from rotational power, movement efficiency, & lastly elasticity to help improve flow for recovery.
