SuperFlex Band Golf Warm Up and Activation

featuring Andrea Doddato

 

Prepping your body with a simple efficient warm-up before every round of golf or practice session can lead to lower scores, improved performance and more consistent rounds of golf. In this first of an eight blog series we will share with you different ways to use resistance bands to stretch, strengthen, activate, mobilize, stabilize all while enhancing core and body speed. In our first blog, SuperFlex Band Golf Warm Up and Activation, we have put together a  simple routine that can be performed for every body everywhere.

Activating your muscles and warming up before practice or competitive play can help to fire up muscle fibers along with loosening up joints to enhance golf swing efficiently.  It’s a valuable process that will help prep the body, reduce the chance of injury as well as engage the mindset.

The blogs will be featuring Andrea Doddato, Golf Digest’s 2 X Top 50 Best Golf Fitness Trainers in America.
