​Think You’re in Shape for Spring Golf… Think Again!

Think You’re in Shape for Spring Golf… Think Again!

With the excitement of the new year upon us, some might be feeling a little frustrated by our overindulgence during the holiday season. Between the seasonal foods and drinks, not to mention stretches of sedentary behavior due to snowy or rainy weather, the very thought of your next tee time might be met with trepidation.

Don’t fret! We’ve taken the time to research some exercises you should start doing ASAP to up your golf game, along with some good reasons to get started sooner than later.

Before you embark on any of these routines, it’s always a good idea to check in with your doctor and support your physical efforts with any of IonLoop’s negative ion bracelets and original magnet bracelets.

Strengthen Up for Spring Golf

According to last year’s 10 Top New Year’s Resolutions for Success and Happiness in 2019, exercising more often is the second most popular resolution, chosen by 65% of a 2,000-people survey, right behind eating healthier or dieting at 71%.

Still, many people believe they are in good enough shape for golf if they can walk the 18-holes without getting winded. Just ask yoga instructor and golf fitness trainer, Katherine Roberts, profiled in The New York Times’ For Spring Success, a Winter Fitness Regimen: “I hear that all the time, ‘I’m in golf shape; I walk 45 minutes a day on the treadmill.’”

Roberts applauds anyone embracing an active lifestyle, “But they’re not training for golf, and before too long, they’re probably not going to have the flexibility and strength to play as well as they want to — or used to.”

The solution?

To embrace a “golf-specific fitness program or to integrate a modest one into your exercise regimen. Such a program primarily enhances the flexibility in your hips, back and shoulders, adds strength to your core and improves your balance,” according to Bill Pennington, who challenged himself to do this in order to enhance his golf game.

The good news is, you don’t have to shell out funds for a gym membership or pay for professional training. There are plenty of free online resources to help you get started, like MyTPI, sponsored by Titleist Performance Institute, which offers Drills & Exercises targeting specific areas, as well as total body workouts.

Find what works for you and make sure your moves are complemented by IonLoop’s innovative line of accessories, designed to optimize your physical and mental well-being, on the green and anywhere you go.
