Pilates for Golfers-
The principles of Pilates are very similar to that of the game of golf. They both have a mind/body connection that is important to creating the correct sequence of motion as well as core control of the body. Pilates principles include concentration, precision, fluidity, control, coordination, centering and breathing. These are all equally important in the practice and playing of golf.
If you are unfamiliar with Pilates, the best way to learn how Pilates works is to take a Pilates class to feel how the exercises work. Pilates routines focus on the core of the body including the abdominals, gluteals, pelvic muscles and lower- to mid-back region. Core conditioning, or torso stability, is essential for improving balance and posture and reducing back pain. Pilates consists of controlled movements and precise form that require concentration to train several muscle groups at once according to Pilates experts.
While Pilates training builds core abdominal and back strength it also helps to increase flexibility, agility, joint mobility and stability all important for golfers to improve athletic performance.
