Pilates and GolfGolfers are constantly working and torquing their bodies while playing. They’re either twisting the body while driving the club, squatting down to measure a putt or leaning over to pick up a ball. Since these movements are fast and repeated multiple times, golfers risk overusing the same muscles while weakening underused muscles, causing imbalances in the body.For a golfer, muscle imbalances can affect the legs, hips, arms, shoulders, and lower back. Most importantly, these imbalances can affect their game. Drives become shorter and less precise, endurance may decrease, and the chance of strains, pulls, and tears increase. As a result, many professional golfers are turning to Pilates as an essential part of their training regiment to keep the body in balance while improving performance.Pilates movements are based from the center of the body thereby utilizing core strength. Many moves in golf rely on the center of the body for stability and power. A stronger core can improve hip rotation, range of motion in the shoulders and back, resulting in more powerful and accurate golf shots. Pilates is a full body workout that works in strengthening and stretching all muscles in the body, while being easy on the joints. Golfers who practice Pilates can expect a stronger, more flexible, and symmetrical body.Performance benefits:
- Attain an optimal backswing and follow-through with increased range of motion in shoulders
- Get more distance and power because of added hip and torso flexibility
- Have a stronger and bigger hip turn for greater power through rotation
- Create a smoother and more powerful swing due to evenly conditioned back muscles
- Maximize balance and alignment while rotating
- Decrease fatigue because of less strain on the body
- Hold a body position long enough to play through a shot
- Play without pain!
