Building Body Strength Helps Female Golfers

In womens golfing hitting those power shots can be the key to success. More and more female golfers are realizing that their drives would travel a lot farther down the fairway if they embarked on a serious physical fitness program.

After all, such programs will boost the strength of female golfers. And a stronger golfer can hit the ball a long way.

Strength Training for WomenThe good news is that any female golfer can take on a strength-building program. Of course, this takes commitment, and a willingness to spend the necessary hours lifting weights or working out in the local gym.

Setting up a strength-training regimen is not a complicated task. The best, and most affordable way, is to invest in some inexpensive free weights. Female golfers can use these weights at their homes to gradually build strength in their core muscles.

When creating your strength-building program, it’s important to focus first on your core muscles. This will improve your balance, provide you with a stable foundation and keep you from injuring yourself while playing golf.

Finally, a fitness program centered on building strength will also make female golfers less susceptible to injury

It’s difficult for any golfers to regain their strength and stroke after suffering a serious injury. That’s why it’s so important to prevent injuries in the first place. Doing this is a major benefit of strength training programs.

Strength-training doesn’t just boost your strength. It also improves your flexibility and agility. If you work your core muscle group, you’ll also improve your overall balance. This is a key to any female golfer hoping to lower her golf scores.

If you’re stronger, you’ll also be more resilient to injuries. Again, this is important if you’re trying to improve your performance on the course. Lowering your golf scores requires practice. You can’t practice, and improve, if you’re always injured.

It’s easy to be intimidated by the thought of strength training. But strength training doesn’t have to be a chore. If you structure your workouts so that you are building strength gradually, you’ll be impressed with the steady results. You’ll feel better, and you’ll be a better golfer.

If you want to improve your performance on the golf course, then, it might be time to craft a strength-training regiment. Consider joining a local gym or purchasing your own set of inexpensive dumbbells. Once you see your golf scores plummeting, you’ll be glad you did.

    Hi Pat
    You are absolutely correct that strength training is essential for women golfers to help their game and prevent injuries. In your post, you state that women should first do core work and strengthening. This can be confusing as to which exercises are targeting the core muscles. If you read 7 books on exercise, they will have 7 different opinions as to which core exercises to do. I am a Titleist Certified Golf Fitness Instructor and through my website, women can purchase the At Home Golf Fitness Evaluation Kit. It takes you thru step by step tests to determine your golf fitness needs and then produces a golf specific exercise program based on the results of your fitness test. The golf specific exercise program is sent to your e-mail address with videos of each exercise and how many reps to do. I find this is a great solution, available to women golfers anywhere in the world, to improve their golf swing by increasing their strength and flexibility with a golf specific exercise program
