Golf Exercises for Flexibility and Strength that were giving to me by Coach Noss from Joey D Golf, are what I have included in this video. The exercises don’t require weights are something that I do from home all of the time. This is Part 2 of my 3 Part Video Series of my trip to Joey D Golf.
This video is about one of the most exciting golf trips I have ever taken. I went to Joey D Golf in Jupiter Florida to learn what golf exercises would be best for me to gain flexibility and to learn how to play power golf. I have 8 bulging discs in my back which have limited my golf swing and my golf fitness. My golf swing speed is only 102mph, so working with Joey D Golf to find the best golf exercises to incorporate into my golf fitness program, is something that I planned for my offseason. Exercises for Flexibility are important to help with preventing injury as much as it is to increase distance.
The best golf exercises are not always the same for everyone. At Joey D Golf they first do an evaluation of your body to see what deficiencies or imbalances you have. In the golf swing it is critical to have a body that is in balance. In my case they found that my left calf muscle was much tighter than my right one and I did not have much internal hip rotation. As a result they gave me very specific golf exercises for hip rotation improvement. Balance in the golf swing is a result of more than just a balanced weight shift. I learned that for your golf swing to perform it’s best, a certain amount of golf fitness must present. Proper stretching and warming up, allows your muscles to perform optimally when at the driving range or on the golf course playing. Power golf is a result of golf swing speeds that be 120mph or higher, rotating around your spine. The golf swing is unique in all of sports because the best golf exercises are not always using heavy weights. For me, my golf swing speed will only increase if I can get loose. Now that I am 50 years old, it is harder for me to get loose, especially if it is early in the day. One of the first things that Joey D Golf worked with me on were a series of golf exercises for flexibility. Specific golf exercises for hip rotation, golf stretches for my back and golf stretches for my hips were the areas of focus. Because of my lack of internal hip rotation, the golf exercises for hip rotation are a priority because it impacts my swing path in my backswing.
The golf exercises that I show in the this video are all things that I can do from home and don’t require weights. To make the moves more difficult or intense, I use a piece of foam or something that creates a bit instability to help all of the small muscles work to stabilize me while I do the exercise. Resistance bands can be added or I can increase the resistance level of the bands.
My Joey D Golf workout has helped me with my fitness for golf and has improved my life outside of golf. The back pain that I have takes a lot of work to manage and I do many things to limit the pain, but the improvement in my golf fitness has had a remarkable impact in the quality of my sleep. I use my golf stretches before I go to bed, which relaxes my muscles and lowers my pain. When I get up in the morning, the first thing I do, even if I am not going to play golf, I do my golf stretches. This gets my back and hips loose and pain free. Depending on what I do during the day, my back will flare up at times. If I do the golf stretches, my back loosens back up. The value of the Joey D Golf workout has been more than just getting loose before a round, it has changed my life.
I hope you enjoy the video and get value from what I learned. If you are interested in learning more about how this could benefit you, I highly recommend you contact Joey D Golf for your personal evaluation.
