Improving your Golf with MedX and the Optimum Movement Centre

By Optimum Movement Centre on February 1, 2019 in | comments

Do you want to improve your golf swing, performance and endurance to enhance your game?

Whether you’re an amateur or professional golfer, you are generally looking to improve your swing, grip and shot selection, amongst other technical components of the game.

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, it will also transition into other areas of your daily life, enabling you to lead a better quality of life.

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, the renowned and respected coach for some of the best golfers in the world including Tiger Woods, puts a huge emphasis on strength and conditioning amongst his students. Butch was also one of the original ambassadors of the MedX® Core Spinal system and uses MedX® equipment at his Las Vegas golf school.

MedX® equipment is scientifically designed and uses proven technology, incorporating years and millions of dollars of medically based, independent and university-based research. This equipment is designed to increase strength, endurance and range of motion.

MedX® machines are the most technologically advanced fitness, sports and medical / rehabilitation equipment available. These machines operate at a level of friction, provide accurate and even resistance through the full range of movement and specifically and safely isolate the targeted muscle group. The machines have been validated by research published in over 75 peer-reviewed journals. We encourage you to visit their website for more information. 

MedX® equipment is designed to increase strength, endurance, flexibility and range of motion. Some of the benefits of training at the OMC and MedX® and how they will improve your golf performance are as follows:

  • Improved range of motion
  • Improved shoulder turn
  • More torque
  • Increased strength, flexibility and mobility
  • Increased stamina and endurance

There are 3 main exercise machines that are particularly useful for improving your function and enhancing your golf swing: Torso Rotation, Lumbar Strength and the Core 4-Way Neck. These three machines isolate the often hard to activate core muscle groups involved in the subtleties of a perfect golf swing, developing power and speed in a relatively short period of time. 

If you want to improve your golf performance and overall general wellbeing, contact us today. Our Instructors will create a personalised training program designed to improve your golf swing and performance; focussing on strengthening core muscles ensuring your body becomes as strong and flexible as possible, which also reduces the risk of an injury.
