Golfers with more strength and flexibility will increase their club head speed and hit the ball farther. Increasing only strength produces marginal improvement; the same goes for increasing just flexibility. However, increasing both strength and flexibility produces far greater results. From a study of golfers using MedX circuit strength training and MedX stretch flexibility exercises:
Reporting in the December 1997 industry journal Fitness Management, researchers Wayne Westcott, Ph.D., and John R. Parziale, MD
At Austin Personal Training and New Orleans Personal Training we use MedX stretch machines and MedX strength training equipment to focus on strength and flexibility improvements. One of our clients, a club golf pro, told me he was hitting the ball farther. I asked him, “Are you sure?” He said, “Yes I am sure. I use a GPS system to measure the distance”. He does once-a-week 30-minute training sessions with us.
With our program golfers can:
· Increase strength and flexibility
· Address muscle imbalances and decrease the likelihood of injuries that often resulting from repetitively swinging the club in one direction.
· Spend minimal time in the gym and have more time available to play golf.
· Play and enjoy golf more often which will positively affect your health.
