Attention Golf Enthusiasts: A professional’s hidden weapon!

Print

Pilates has been popular with dancers, footballers (the all Blacks), soccer players and basketballers for many years now. Yes guys, “real men do Pilates” but do golf enthusiasts practice Pilates? Apparently so!!! Recently I came across an article in a Health and Fitness magazine written by Michael Court. Michael had been talking to Gold Coast based ALPG star, Verity Knight.

Verity waxes lyrical about how her golf swing has improved and her flexibility amazing and its all due to Pilates.

A lot of golfers suffer with lower back issues due to leaning forward which switches off the core. Not using the core puts extra weight into the lumber and
therefore the spine. Having strength through the core not only helps with the golf swing but is great for the well-being of the golf enthusiast.

Pilates emphasizes building strength, flexibility, posture, balance and coordination. These are all strengths that any golfer requires in order to increase
his level of golfing success, plus Pilates golf stretching exercises add energy and stamina. The following stretches are some of the key to avoiding lower back pain injuries.

  • Wall Roll down
  • The saw
  • Mermaid stretch
  • Pilates arc for hip internal rotation and hip extension
  • Parallel on the foam roller for scapular stabilization while the spine moves
  • into spinal extension and rotation.
  • The reformer, Skating strengthens legs and hips.


And much more…
