Cardiogolf Slope Fitness Step
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.
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.
The Cardiogolf Slope is ideal for cardiovascular training and lower body exercises and can be used as a regular gym bench as well. The Cardiogolf Slope is curved and works similar to a balance ball or BOSU ball also known as a Swiss ball, fit ball or stability ball. The Slope works similar to these training aids, but with the Slope, there is no need to have all the different balls. The Slope will help you work on your core body muscles-the abdominals and back muscles. A primary benefit of exercising on the curved Sloped as opposed to exercising directly on a hard flat surface is that the body responds to the instability of the Slope to remain balanced, engaging many more muscles to do so. The Slope also double as a gym bench or a chair and is easy to move and store and can challenge your body’s balance in ways that a stable bench cannot.
Core stabilization is crucial to your overall golf performance. Your core or torso which encompasses your hips, abdominals, back and legs are the stabilizing muscles during a golf swing; these muscles hold a position while other parts of the body are at work. The Slope is effective in strengthening your core muscles, as well as increasing your flexibility, range of motion and improving balance. In my opinion, it is the single most important golf-specific accessory you will own. The Slope can be used in conjunction with the Shortee Club, dumbbells, medicine balls and resistance bands.
