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.
Use the Cardiogolf ‘Shortee’ Club to 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’ Club to practice anywhere and at anytime.

Today we focus on Uphill and Downhill Lies
Siimulate 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.
Simulate a downhill lie by placing your back foot on a step or bench so that most of your weight is on the front side like a downhill lie.
- Rehearse your backswing for 8 to 10 repetitions.
- Then rehearse your downswing for 8 to 10 repetitions.
- If your tendency is to do a reverse weight shift or pivot, this is an excellent drill to help learn the correct weight shift.
- This exercise is great for anyone that needs to learn how to load the backswing.
- The downhill portion of the exercise will help you with your weight shift towards the target.
For years, I have been using a traditional step in my Cardiogolf routines and exercises. Although effective, I felt it was important to design a step that simulated a fairway to make it more ‘golf-like.’
You almost never have a flat lie on the golf course, so it is important to practice your swing on sloping lies to develop feel and stability. The Cardiogolf ‘Slope’ is curved like a fairway slope. You can vary the angle you place your foot to practice varies sloping lies.
I developed the Cardiogolf ‘Slope’ to help golfers practice uphill and downhill lies, but it is also a great tool for exercise. You can do a variety of traditional low-impact exercises as well as strength, balance, core and even upper body exercises.
