It is finally time to hit the golf course, but have you noticed your game declining? You may be able to improve your golf game more off the course than on it with Pilates. Plenty of professional golfers use Pilates to improve their form, strength and flexibility.
Your small muscles support your larger muscles, but most strength training programs only work the large muscles. If your small muscles fatigue or lose strength, that affects your large muscles groups. Additionally, strength training does not work on muscle flexibility.
Through Pilates, you can specifically work the muscles groups used to wield your golf club with precision. Pilates works all the muscles in the core of the body, the abdominals, obliques, lats and glutes. Working these muscles with Pilates stabilizes you to allow for maximum range of motion and support. This makes a significant difference in your swing. Additionally, while you work out your muscle groups, you also work on making those muscle groups more flexible. This is why Pilates has become one of the most popular exercises.
Pilates exercise programs can help you hit the ball farther and straighter more consistently while reducing the risk of injury and back pain. Golf is one of the most popular past times and Pilates and golf are a natural duo. All of the muscles required for golf are trained during Pilates.
If you have been challenging your co-workers to a “friendly” game of golf, get into a Pilates work-out first. With Pilates you will find success far beyond that of your traditional fitness program. For more information on Pilates for golf, contact Answer is Fitness.
