If you are wanting to improve your golf swing, performance and endurance to better your golf game, who better to look to for inspiration than one of the world’s most respected and renowned golf coaches. Butch Harmon coaches some of the best golfers in the world, including Tiger Woods, and happens to have something in common with The Optimum Movement Centre - state-of-the-art MedX machines.
How Can MedX Machines Improve Your Golf Game?
MedX machines are not like normal pieces of equipment you’d find in traditional gyms. They are expensive, specialised machines used by professional athletes and medical professionals for rehabilitation and performance optimisation.
The huge draw card that MedX machines bring when improving your golf game, is how they can isolate the often hard to activate core muscle groups needed for a perfect golf swing.
The Optimum Movement Centre incorporates MedX equipment along with functional fitness exercises to increase strength, power, mobility, flexibility, agility and endurance to improve your overall fitness and conditioning. As your body becomes stronger, it will naturally also become more efficient.
Butch Harmon also puts a huge emphasis on increasing strength and conditioning with his elite golf students by using the MedX machines. He is one of the original ambassadors of the MedX Core Spinal system and also uses the MedX equipment at his Las Vegas golf school.
Butch Harmon endorses MedX® equipment saying, “If you look at the long hitters of today, they make very little hip turn on the backswing and a huge shoulder turn. The Rotary Torso by MedX will help you achieve this.”
Butch Harmon understands the important of strength, flexibility and endurance to gain the advantage in one’s golf game. He explains that “Athletic training is essential. Golfers looking for the competitive edge take physical training seriously”.
Improved Physical Conditioning = Improved Performance
For a long, strong and consistent golf swing, having an optimal range of motion through your shoulders, hips and spine is essential. In order to improve your game, you need to address these key areas through a focussed strength and conditioning program. Physical strength, flexibility and general condition play an important role in your overall game.
Another common complaint amongst players is they generally suffer from lower back pain, making them more vulnerable to injury. Your lower back plays an important part of your game as it enables torso rotation, impacting how dynamically you can move your body.
The relationship between improved physical conditioning and improved performance in sport is very well documented and golf is no different. Whilst improving your physical fitness, conditioning, flexibility and mobility will improve your golf swing, it will also increase your stamina and energy levels; not only improving your golf performance, but also enabling you to lead a better quality of life.
