The greatest desire among those that love golf is to be able to play the game as long and efficiently as possible. As we continue to age, our golf game becomes exceedingly more challenging. This is because power and strength, when not continually trained, decreases at a rapid rate. As mentioned in the previous blog post, we know that “between the ages of 65 and 89, explosive lower-limb extensor power has been reported to decline at 3.5% per year compared to a 1-2% per year decrease in strength” (Skelton et al. 1994).
While it seems like it’s nearly impossible to stop the inevitability of aging, there is actually a lot that you can do to combat the everyday stiffness you feel and improve your golf game! BBCT now offers Golf Performance Training, led by BBCT’s very own trainer, Nathan, who was recently certified through the Titleist Performance Institute, who is known as the leader in golf fitness. This program will first evaluate your mobility, stability and power as a golfer. Once evaluated, a custom program will be written for you to improve areas that need developing, all of which will translate to your golf game.
Nathan is now offering a free 30-minute evaluation through March 2020 that is designed to uncover certain physical limitations that could negatively impact your golf swing. Don’t let aging get the best of your golf game. Contact BBCT today for your free evaluation!
