9-min Non-Dominate Side Workout (021)
CardioGolf® Groove Your Swing Workouts • 8m 17s
Golf is a one-sided sport. We set up to the ball on the same side every single time, we turn back behind the ball in the same direction every single time and then we follow-through in the same direction every single time and we do this for hundreds of repetitions, at high speeds, for hours at a time. It's no wonder many golfers suffer injuries, aches and pains.
If you are a right-handed golfer, your dominant side (right) is stronger, more flexible and more coordinated than your non-dominant side (left). The opposite for left-handed golfer. The problem with this is that the dominant may take over in the golf swing and cause swing faults that can lead to swing compensations and injuries.
Studies show that focusing on training your non-dominant side can accelerte your improvement. The same study says that the combination of core and non-dominant arm strength exercises can provide a more effective specialized training program than core alone training for golfers to increase their drive distances.
Check out my non-dominant side workout that I incorporate into my Cardiogolf classes to improve strength, flexibility and coordination on my weaker side.
