The really tricky part about exercises for senior golfers, and getting them to do, 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.
We’ve had 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 senior 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.
