The golf swing is one of the most difficult practices to master because it utilizes the upper and lower body and engages the mind. Fortunately, Golf Pilates workouts can not only improve the golf swing, but increase flexibility and strength in various muscle groups.
Golf Pilates combines both classical and modern Pilates practices. Golf Pilates workouts are most beneficial if performed on the mat, Reformer or exercise ball. In addition to providing for increased flexibility for powering the backswing, Golf Pilates workouts improve a golfer’s posture to allow for the best swing plane for various golf shots off the tee, in the fairway, and around the putting green. These exercises also loosen the chest muscles. When chest muscles tighten, a golfer doesn’t properly address the ball prior to swinging the club. Leg stability and core control are also maintained in these exercises to provide more power in the downswing, enhancing distance and accuracy.
