Due to the nature of golf with its twisting motions and rapid follow-through, golf is hardest on the low back, mid back and shoulders. Eight out of ten golfers will suffer back problems at some point in their golfing career.
Golf also causes physical problems because it’s both a seasonal and a weekend activity. Most of us only play once the weather warms up and winter-weakened muscles are asked to jump into 18 holes. Plus we perform sedentary deskwork during the week combined with stressful lifestyle factors and poor postures, and then over-do it on the weekends…and wonder why we’re sore on Monday morning.
Always keep these six rules in mind when performing any kind of stretch:
- Warm-Up. Before you stretch, your muscles should be warm. An efficient warm-up can include marching, walking in place while swinging your arms, taking a warm shower, or mimicking the sport you are about to do. The warm-up increases the muscle temperature, which increases blood flow to the tissue. The muscle fibers can respond more quickly and efficiently to the stretch.
