Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge
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.
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 mobility and strength in the shoulders.
According to studies the shoulder joint may be the least stable joint in your body. Simply raising your arms over your head helps develop strength and mobility in the shoulder, but most people don’t do that motion during the day. From sitting in the car and at the computer, their shoulders are locked forward in a rounded position limiting the range of motion in the shoulder. If you have limited range of motion in your shoulder, you will be limited in your ability to rotate in your golf swing and how far you can swing your arms.
Performing shoulder exercises that strengthen and improve shoulder range of motion will not only help you improve your golf swing, but could help you prevent injury.
Here is a simple overhead reach exercise that can be done during the day to help stretch and strengthen your shoulders.
Overhead Arm Reach
- Stand in a shoulder width stance holding a Shortee club as shown.
- Inhale as your reach your arms above your head, keeping your shoulders down and your spine straight. Avoid arching the back and no need to reach your hands behind your head.
- Hold for a moment as you try to lengthen your arms and reach your fingertip to the ceiling.
- Exhale as you eturn to the start position and repeat for 8 to 10 repetitions.
