  2. Suggestions for Golf Fitness Exercises

    What is most important......having fun playing golf. I just like my structured routine, warm up and cool down, for golf.
  3. Suggestions for Golf Fitness Exercises

    I like doing resistance training either with low tension resistance bands or light dumbbells to warm up my body before playing golf. I looked at other warm up methods, golf active stretching movements. They did not appeal to me. I dont have muscle fatigue. However, I do encounter everyday stress at work and at home. Golf and fitness workouts are my ways to relieve stress. I could always go to Happy Hour after work. I will stick to golf and fitness workouts. What is your warm up routine before playing a round of golf? Please share.

  9. Bringing golf club to gym

    Never brought a golf club to the fitness center.
  10. When older adults engage in physical activity, they must be aware of their limitations and the amount of activity their bodies can handle. As a golfer in my fifties, I have to accept that I cannot play a physical golf game as I did in my twenties. I have a different body in my fifties. Therefore, just play bogey-double bogey ball and enjoy being able to go on the golf course at my Senior age.
  11. I have also incorporated sports nutrition into my fitness and golf. My 19 hole beverage is a protein shake. The bottle of beer is consumed several hours after playing golf. My cool down activity after playing a round of golf is 30 minutes on the elliptical machine to flush out my muscles. Then finish with 10 mins of stretching movements to maintain flexibility. Finally, drink a protein shake.
  12. I am a fitness fanatics. I do workout with golf in mind. I perform cardiovascular and strength training weekly to be able to swing the club, walk and carry my bag for 18 holes. As a result of my commitment to fitness, I have not had any injuries from playing golf.
