To maximize your full potential in the golf swing, you must have the ability to take your joints and muscles through their full range of motion. Performing exercises that focus on muscles that are chronically tight will help your become more efficient in your golf swing.
Chest and Back Opener-
Having tight or overly developed pectorals and latissimus (chest and back) muscles can affect how your shoulders work in the golf swing. The tight and overly developed muscles tend to dominate the arm movement in the golf swing, restricting how well your shoulders can turn which can lead to swing compensations and even injury.
1. Extend your arms long as you assume a golf stance.
2. Your arms hang down as if you had a golf club in your hands.
3. Swing your arm back to open up your chest and feel a stretch in your upper back. Go only as far back as you feel comfortable. Repeat on the opposite arm.
4. Return to the start position and repeat alternating arms for 10 to 15 repetitions.
This exercise can be down before or after a round of golf.

Practice something about your game everyday.
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.

More importantly good nutrition is good for your overall health and well-being.
