The facts of the matter are that a golfer with a back problem will always face an uphill and maybe impossible task when it comes to improving on their game. The back will always come in the way of any efforts at improvement. This is where golfer back exercises come in.
A golf back exercise is a key part of any golf-specific exercise routine. A closer look at the golf swing will show clearly that it heavily depends on and indeed leans on the back. Actually a perfect golf swing is really all about using the spine as an axis to allow the correct swing plane. The spine is at the very center and core of the golf swing.
Golf exercises focused on the back can be extremely useful in helping solve this nagging problem amongst the many golfers who suffer from this problem which can be both very painful and frustrating. There are cases where the back problem started even before the golfer started playing golf and there are other cases where it starts shortly after they start frequenting a golf course. There are even cases where the problem is greatly aggravated by golf. Chances of getting an improvement on your game from all three different scenarios with the help of golfer back exercises are very high. Many golfer back exercise involve stretching exercises.
Interestingly enough, I have witnessed some of these stretch exercises helping some golfers with chronic back pain problems. There are some who have been fortunate enough to have the problem completely disappear while others have gotten a great deal of relief as a result of the golfer back exercise.
Golfer back exercise can also help golfers who have never experienced any back problems to avoid them altogether. As we have already seen, the golf swing involves so much use of the back that injury to it is quite. Golf back exercises are also important for senior golfers.
The really tricky part about exercises for senior golfers, and getting them to do them, is the fact they often suffer from various ailments and pains in various parts of their bodies. It is like having to deal with the overworked engine of an aging car. Things always seem to go wrong all the time and there is always one problem after another. The situation is a little similar with older golfers.
Still, exercises for senior golfers have been known to have a major impact on their game. I have worked with golfers who are as old as 80 years and I can say with confidence that exercises have done a great deal for many senior golfers.
There are some cases where stretch exercises have helped ease and in some cases have completely eliminated nagging back pains in senior golfers. The good thing about golf exercises is that they are not a burden in any way and they are usually quite easy to do. They are not a reserve of the young and physically fit.
In fact the exercises are designed for the unfit, to help the physically unfit attain a level of fitness that will impact on their golf game. The exercise regime for senior golfers is therefore exactly the same one used for younger golfers and even the youngest ones. It typically involves both stretch exercises and weight training designed to strengthen the muscles and parts of your body used for golf. The amazing thing is that in golf, you use a vast majority of the muscles in your entire body, right from the feet to the neck.
The result is that exercises for all golfers not only help them dramatically improve their game of golf, but they also greatly assist them in living a better quality life with the aches and pains eliminated or at least greatly reduced. This is proof enough that the impact of exercises for senior golfers on their lives goes well beyond the golf course.
