Pilates for Golfers
Pilates for golfers is great for increasing power production and control of the body’s rotational movement during a golf swing. Pilates can also improve postural alignment, reducing postural pain which is a common consequence forward and rounded body position required for golf.
How it works
Pilates is an overall body conditioning workout consisting of various matwork based exercises designed to increase in intensity and difficulty as your strength and muscle endurance increases. The exercises work the entire body and focus on developing a strong deep core for a solid central base around which movement occurs. A solid central base allows for greater power production with every swing during golf, increasing accuracy and distance of the ball.
Pilates incorporates a series of controlled fluid movements which stretch the muscles to relieve any tightness or tension which could restrict performance. Pilates re-educates normal movements patterns, reducing risk of injury which may be acquired through repetitive trunk rotation, squatting to pick the ball up and prolonged walking.
