The winter season can be boring and exhausting sometimes, especially when you are used to an active lifestyle. It is only good for relaxing and chilling, and maybe some overeating!. If you are an avid golf player the winter can be especially difficult. But it doesn’t mean that you should just sit around and let the muscles atrophy. Never!
The off-season is a great time to work more on the important details, on things you probably didn’t notice during the season. During winter you should work more on your technique, on your moves, strikes… on the finesse that will make your play even more impressive. When you step on the golf course for the first time after a long pause, you will have something new to show. That is, if you follow instructions from our golf professionals.
There are no magical worlds of wisdom that will make you the next Tiger Woods if you are just sitting on the couch and doing nothing. Unfortunately, that is not an option. Instead of counting the days and hours till springtime you should look after all the important aspects: staying sharp, staying physically fit, finding your perfect equipment, and taking lessons.
Staying in shape
We already mentioned that staying in shape is crucial. This should be on everyone’s bucket list, not just for golfers. It is not just about looking great, it is important overall, if you want to stay mobile and healthy.
But let’s get back to why this is actually pretty important for savvy golf players. You should avoid getting muscle atrophy or you will lose your strength and it could damage the quality of your game. People say that golf is more of a hobby than an actual sport – but it takes muscle coordination and strength. If you let your muscles go – it will certainly impact the quality of your game. And while you are struggling to get back in shape – the season will end again.
So what can you do? Combine weight lifting and cardio. Weight lifting will make you stronger and increase you stamina, which will make your moves more balanced. Cardio is great for keeping your heart healthy and stable – it will help you to move better on the golf course.
We know that this is the hardest part, accepting that your game is not perfect and seeking help from professionals. But let’s just be honest for a moment here and look at the truth.
