Are you looking to improve your fitness for golf, improve your general health, or do you suffer from any of the following?
- Lack of distance
- Injury Problems
- Lack of Flexibility and mobility
- Poor Posture
- Poor Shoulder turn
- Topping, thinning or heavy golf shots
Adequate mobility, stability, power, endurance, balance and body awareness will allow you generate consistency, power and efficiency in your golf swing. If any of these are limited your golf swing will be compromised and its ability to work efficiently will be inhibited. Your body will compensate by attempting to make up for this weakness by using another area of the body.
E.g. Lower Crossed Syndome
If you sit in a chair for eight hours a day, in time, your hip flexors will become shortened or tight. Your brain will automatically start to shut down or inhibit your glute muscles which are on the opposite side. Since your glute muscles are not working properly your body will recruit synergistic muscles such as the hamstrings and lower back muscles to help the glutes perform hip extension. You begin to use muscles that were not intended to be used for specific actions such as walking or swinging the golf club.
Lower crossed syndome is the combination of tight hip flexors and a tight lower back, paired with weak abdominals and weak glutes. This combination leads to an excessive arching or rounding of the lower back, a flabby or protruding abdomen, and a flat backside due to weakness in the glutes. This is a dangerous combination of muscle imbalances due to excessive stress that it places on the lower back.
This can be seen in people who set up with S -Posture and this is one of the 16 most common swing faults due to physical limitations in the body.
Let Shaun Devenney carry out a TPI Physical screening to identify any limitations and develop a personalised golf conditioning programme to help you improve your body and ultimately improve your game.
What is TPI?
PGA Professional, Shaun Devenney has recently trained with David Philips and Dr. Greg Rose, two of the world's leading experts in golf fitness. They are behind the leading golf fitness facility in the world, the Titleist Performance Institute.
After training and passing the necessary qualifications Shaun has been certified by the TPI as a Golf Fitness coach. (C.G.F.I.)
How can this help your game?
Factors like strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, nutrition, stability, power, vision and posture all influence the body's mechanics. Players are placed through a complete array of tests (physical screening) usually reserved for the best golfers in the world. By assessing a “total picture” of your body during the screening process, we measure your ability to generate and transfer speed and determine the most efficient energy transfer throughout your body.
The screening will isolate any physical limitations, correlate these findings to your swing technique and a custom-conditioning program is prescribed for you.
Eliminate Swing Faults
The screening will identity weaknesses that relate to your golf swing. There are sixteen common swing faults caused by physical limitations, examples include a slice, sway, coming over the top or a lack of distance, the screening will identity the physical weaknesses and with a personalised exercise program you can improve your golf swing
