Warm Up is Key

by drjdewitt

Ideally, spending some time at the range before playing a round helps keep a golfer warmed up if done properly. The average golfer swings the club at 95-115MPH. That places a huge demand on the spine, shoulders, and hips with each and every swing.

While at the range, take 60seconds for each ball. Most golfers make the mistake of just going rapid fire without any warmup or stretching. This is a recipe for disaster!

It’s important to have a proper stretch and warmup to avoid possible injury. Make sure to address each of the following:

1. hamstrings

2. adductors (inner thigh)

3. piriformis muscle

4. hips

5. shoulders

6. spine

7. wrists
