Golf Swing

Golf is a low-impact way to get some exercise. Golf is a social, competitive sport that requires frequent walking on a course. The repetitive motion of your club swing can cause injury and pain. The most common symptoms are the back and arms, but the golf swing can cause injury to any part of your body.

We’ll be discussing some important stretches for golfers in this article. These stretches are great for:

  • Relief golf-related Pain
  • Reduce Your Chance of Injury
  • Improve Your Overall Performance

These stretches should be done before and after each round of golf. You should also perform a set on days off to get the best results.

  • Shoulder Stretch

This is a great stretching technique that golfers can use to open their shoulders and increase range of motion in their shoulder joints. This is a great stretch for athletes whose sport involves the upper body, arms and shoulders. This can be used as a warm-up before a round of golf and should be repeated throughout the game.

  1. Position your golf club in front you, one hand holding each end with an overhand grip.
  2. Move the club forward, straighten your elbows and lift it up above your head.
  3. Slowly stretch out your shoulders and extend your arms backwards until tension is felt in your shoulders.
  4. Hold the button for 10-20 seconds, then release.
  5. Repeat the process two to three more times.
  6. You should not push yourself beyond what you can handle. Slowly increase your range of motion.
