If you’re anything like me, a good game of golf can be a total reset for my mind….that’s a GOOD game. A bad game, makes my body hurt all over and perhaps a bit cranky.
There’s an article on PGA.com that speaks to the tie in of Whole Body Vibration Exercise and a GOOD Golf Swing. The article really makes the physiology of golf clear.
Your golf swing is primarily about proper body mechanics. A good golf swing requires the full rotational capacity of nearly every joint involved and needs to be done with relative ease. When your body attains its optimal range of motion, your best swing will be performed efficiently, easily, explosively and repeatedly. Many golf swing faults are directly attributable to poor joint mobility, resulting from soft tissue restrictions. Soft tissue includes: muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and fascia.
Wholebody Systems has been using Whole Body Vibration for 5 years, and our clients are thriving (both on the and off the golf course). The article goes on to explain the science of Whole Body Vibration exercise and how it helps your swing.
This is exactly what Whole Body Vibration does; it works by transferring vibrations from an oscillating platform to muscles throughout the body, enabling them to contract and relax multiple times per second in a reflex action. Any static or dynamic pose, held for up to 60 seconds at a time while vibrating on the Whole Body Vibration platform, activates targeted muscle groups, simultaneously improving muscle strength, power, flexibility and range of motion; all contributing to optimal performance on the course.
If you’re an avid golfer like me, you’re constantly looking to improve your game. That new driver or set of clubs may not be what you need, consider some Whole Body Vibration exercises to increase the range of motion in your golf swing.
