Core strength is vital to your golf swing and golf game. Ha shows three different golf exercise tips and variations for an abdominal and trunk exercise on the floor, Bosu, and TRX to strengthen your core. They are shown in increasing levels of difficulty. The pelvic knee tuck exercise requires some skills and coordination to be able to control and hold your lower and upper body in specific stable positions while trying to concentrate on contracting your abdominal muscles. The goal of these exercises is to do your best to fully tighten and shorten your abs, while juggling to be solid with holding the other pieces of the body during this full body exercise.
Going slow and controlled is necessary at first, to master the fundamentals of controlling and contracting the targeted muscles throughout the motion. Once you fully master this, then you can progress and advance to different levels of difficulty shown in the video and/or along with controlled speed. These golf core exercises may not seem like it’s doing much, but with the right intention and focus of optimally contracting the abdominal muscle can be challenging for some especially if you involve controlling and orchestrating other pieces of the body to be in proper precise positions during the movement.
It’s quite important that you focus on quality of motion and control, rather than number of reps. Control is a big element in proper golf techniques. This is part of where your consistency in your golf swing sequence and mechanics can come from. Keep in mind this may or may not be beneficial depending on your physical capabilities. Please check with your physician before performing in any physical activity.
Core strength is not as elusive as many may believe. It just takes focused work. Yep, we said the four letter word….’work’. Get to it now and you’ll be happy you did later.
