A Note from Karen:
There are less than two weeks until the summer golf season begins. If you practice some aspect of your game everyday until then, you’ll be ready to start the season out the right way. This time of year is hard to find time to practice- with kids getting out of school, graduations and vacations. So I have designed a mini-Cardiogolf Challenge to help you get some daily practice.
Today’s Challenge-Improve Core Muscles
Core muscles, which include the abdominals and the low back, are essential to the golf swing to create power. Strengthening the core can be done with simple plank exercises.
Plank exercises can be done almost anywhere at any time. Performing plank exercises on a regular basis will help strengthen muscles to improve golf swing and prevent injury.
Lie facedown on the floor and get up into a push-up position. You can also use forearms and toes to push your body up off of the floor balancing only on your forearms and toes.
Contract your abdominal muscles while keeping your head, neck and shoulders aligned with hips and legs.
Hold position for 10 seconds working up to holding position for 60 seconds.
