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 Torso Rotation-
Long lean muscles work best for golf. When muscles are long and lean, you are able to work through your full range of motion to make a complete backswing.
One of the most common swing faults among high-handicapper is lack of rotation in the torso. Compared to professionals who make massive shoulder and torso turns.
To create a good turn, you need to be strong and flexible. Doing a few exercises to free up your torso turn will help you turn better.
Torso Rotation Drill-
- Stand is a shoulder width stance.
- Hold a club in front of your chest as shown.
- Rotate your upper torso and hold position to one side as you exhale and inhale.
- Hold stretch for 8 to 10 counts.
- Return to start position and repeat on the opposite side.
- Do 8 to 10 repetitions on both sides.
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.
