So Tiger Woods spends two hours a day in gym, Gary Player still does a thousand sit ups every morning. I don`t need to do that, it is there job to play golf. And so it goes. Yes they havethe time and money to devote their lives to their given sport but is that really an excuse for you to be lax in your approach. Fitness for Golf is not just a phrase that applies to the golf pro. In fact it is just as important to every golfer.
It is very rare that any top sportsman does not rely in some degree on his level of fitness. When Nick Faldo completely altered his approach to the game in the early eighties a major factor in his rise to be number one golfer in the world was the fitness regime that complimented his obvious talent. Tiger Woods has no problem admitting that he would not be as successful as he is without the golf fitness schedule he adheres to.
A simple exercise plan to help your round After winning his first Green Jacket in 1961 it was quoted that Gary Player would never last as his exercise regime would ruin his golfing career.Nearly fifty years on it could be said that quote was slightly in error. Admittedly Player was, and still is, a fitness fanatic. Not everyone has his zeal and time to commit to such indoctrination.However it seems that golfers need to be educated about the benefits of exercise and warm-ups.A recent survey of more than 1000 golfers confirmed that golfers primarily do not warm up.A surprising 70% stated they rarely warmed up, less unexpected was that a meagre 3.8% confessed to exercising before each round. Now before you hook out the sweat pants and dust off the barbells let`s take some time to think about this:The Arnold we want to simulate is Palmer not Schwarzenegger.So relax, sit back and let`s think of the most practical and accessible means of golf exercises at hand.
