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 Flexibility-
The full body stretch helps elongate and align joints and muscles. It is a modified Pilates exercise. I have taken simple stretches and combined them with Pilates’ breathing to target muscles used in the golf swing. Although Pilates have been in the mainstream of general fitness for a few years now, golfers are just starting to consider this discipline to help them improve their golf games. Pilates help improve flexibility, concentration and body control. Breathing is an integral part of Pilates, so you will want to concentrate on your breathing as you do all the exercises.
Full Body Stretch-
- Stand is a shoulder width stance.
- Hold a club above your head as shown and extend your arms and torso and hold position as you exhale and inhale for 8 to 10 counts.
- Return to start position.
- Do 8 to 10 repetitions.
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. Stay tuned for more information.
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.
Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge
