At IGPN as a concept, we believe that you should train and develop as a golfer to perform age-appropriate skills.
To sport the primary requirements are Strength, Speed, Stamina, Flexibility & Mobility. The next physical assets are, Power to deliver instantly an explosive burst of movement, Agility to possess sustained power, Balance to control the body in these situations and lastly Endurance to remain ahead of others at the 18th Green even on the last Day of the Tournament.
The IGPN ‘Sports Conditioning Program’ is structured to improve Physical Fitness and Motor Skills in young children to develop their physical potential for golf. The Trainer customizes drills to keep pace with the progress and push to higher levels. Aim’s to improve certain muscles or postures for performance, injury prevention and proper mechanics
A significant investment of time is required. Our ‘Sports Conditioning’ program starts at the Junior Level and continues through past the competitive stages of a golfer, thus it must be part of a weekly routine.
To maintain a healthy life style, programs are also tailor made for Senior’s to enjoy the Golden Years.
Understanding which muscles are involved in the golf swing will help you exercise them to perfect the golf swing and lower your golf score.
Primarily there are 22 muscles involved in the forward golf swing. The proper conditioning of these muscles will increase your club head speed and give you better control. For this you will need to speed up the contraction rate within these muscles, thus the body needs to be worked upon.
Just to illustrate, every muscle of the body gets to participate in the golf swing .Your hips are the bridge between the upper body and lower body. They are at the center of your body's movement; it is the psoas major muscle that connects the upper to the lower body.
A functioning psoas muscle creates a neutral pelvic alignment, stabilizes the hips, supports the lower spine and abdomen, and gives you greater mobility and core strength, so very necessary for Golf.
