Some good stretches here, but be careful with them if you have lower back issues. Pushing range of motion too far is as bad as not stretching at all. Seeing a good chiropractor or pt first is a good idea.

The guys at Premier Fitness Systems in the Phoenix area are golf centric. They have a lot of PGA and LPGA clients as well as other professional athletes. Instead of bulk, they are really good at stretches. Check out @ando_pfs on instagram and he posts a bunch of stretches for free. Heck, I think I saw a few MGS staff there one day as well.

Thanks for sharing these routines.

 

I still remember being skeptical the first time I tried Yoga. I'm glad that didn't get in the way of trying it. It's become a regular part of my week and has really helped me fight the aches and pains of getting older (Yes I know I'm still young for many people on the board... try telling that to my knees and ankles).

 

Still, the "thank you for sharing your love/energy/story" or similar at the end always confuses me. We've all basically ignored each other in the same room while working through a physical routine, stop wasting my time by trying to shoehorn emotional support in at the end. I don't want to end a workout with a hug and story time. I want to leave, shower and get on with my day.

 

Oh well, I'm just being grumpy - I'm not the only person in the room and others seem to enjoy that part.

I got the yoga for golf program by Katherine Roberts. Pretty straightforward stretching and flexibility exercises without the mushy stuff.

My only problem is that I don't use it enough. I started out this spring using it daily but then it migrated down to just a few stretching exercises. I need to get back into it full time. There is a lot of value to doing it before and after golf.

it is so hard to stay committed.

For me, as silly as this may sound, is that I love the feeling of being sore afterwards.  it is a nice feeling.

You DO NOT want to be doing static stretches before golfing or working out! You are risking injury if you do. Instead you need to be doing a dynamic stretching routine to warm up, preferably with a little cardio beforehand to get the blood moving.

Once you’re done working out or golfing, static stretching is awesome. Just not before either!

I must be missing something. I thought stretching was stretching - how are you defining the difference between static and dynamic?

There is also a good series of stretches (both dynamic and static) in the Christian Henning training program '30 Yards in 30 Days'. 

I know he has other golf centric programs, just not much material in the 'free, at large' category.

Static stretching is where you stretch and hold it for a length of time , say 30 seconds. dynamic stretching is going back and forth to the stretch position ( ie like doing a push up).   New studies have revealed that static stretching just before playing does more harm than good. 

 

Static stretching should be done a minimum of 2 hours before if need be prior to golfing

Har, so yoga is considered static or dynamic? Not being an expert my initial response would be static.

I don't do much yoga so I really cannot say on that but just think of  static meaning stationary and dynamic - in motion
