MedX® manufacturer of rehabilitative exercise equipment commissioned research to see if their core exercise equipment would be helpful to golfers. The results: The golfers had more range of motion, greater club head speed, and hit the ball farther. Butch Harmon, Tiger Woods’ swing coach, used MedX equipment at his Las Vegas golf school. MedX once provided a bus that was equipped with their patented core exercise equipment. It followed the golfers from tournament to tournament on the Senior PGA tour.
You don’t have to be a professional to benefit from the program. Marcus, 72 years old, went from be limited to playing nine holes every other day to being able to play 18 holes in back-to-back outings.
More recently a new client, Mike, had back problems when he went golfing, so much so that he took Ibuprofen before teeing off and took some more on the back nine. He goes golfing about for five times a year. He would go more, but it aggravates his back. The next few days after golfing, he often finds himself stiff and sore.
Mike completed his 18th exercise session the other day. The nine hours of exercise total. He went out golfing this past weekend and played all 18 holes with no pain, none at all. The MedX core exercise equipment will strengthen the back and facilitate increased range of motion. More motion and more strength mean better circulation and better lubrication of the discs resulting in a healthier back. At Austin Fitness Trainers and New Orleans Personal Training we have full lines of MedX equipment. We have helped golfers up their game, and we have had success working with those who have back problems.
