Yoga for golfers > How to Properly Warm Up for Golf
Ever thought about yoga as a way to improve your golf game?
Not only does it help your concentration skills, but it also helps you to play longer and pain-free.
Golf is an athletic sport that is both physically and mentally demanding. Specific yoga practice improves flexibility, muscular strength, and mobility and is also an excellent way to warm up the body before a round of golf. Warming up for any sport should be dynamic, so the body builds core heat which helps warm the muscles.
To prepare your body for a round of golf, a short yoga routine you can use to stretch out, warm up, reduce injury and gain focus. Play more effectively and prepare the body and mind for a great round of golf.
Pre-Golf Warm-up routine
Try these five poses before you hit the golf course to warm up and prepare to play. If your body is warmed up and you hit the ball more effortlessly, it will boost your confidence before a round. Play Better, Stronger, longer!
MENTAL WARM-UP for golf
Any exercise will help you improve your golf game, but yoga is the only one that will also help your mental game. Without a solid mental game, even the most physically capable golfers will be underperforming at the tee. Before a round, take a few minutes of breathing exercise to get present and release any expectations of how you will play that day. A good breathing technique for golf is the best way to regulate your heart rate and feel more relaxed. Avoid being hard on yourself and trust your efforts and the process. Spend a couple of minutes thinking about what you are grateful for in what you are about to do, no matter how you play. I highly recommend making 10–15-minute meditation a regular daily exercise, but this is a great start!
Regardless of age, physical state, or flexibility, Yoga for golfers offers the tools to begin, maintain, and advance one’s yoga practice to achieve results on and off the golf course. Golf is a body-mind sport, so it requires physical and mental training.
