Are you making this BIG mistake?
Dee here, back from another TPI certification event!
BTW…did you know that you have absolutely NO reason why you shouldn’t be on a golf fitness program?
Because there are over 4000 TPI certified professionals in the world that are ready to help you be a better golfer! Find one in your area.
Ok, the big mistake you are probably making is…stretching random muscles cause your golf instructor or personal trainer, or yoga teacher, or because you read it in Mens Health or Golf Digest! Here’s why:
As golf fitness pro’s, Tyler and I believe in seeking to gain “Mobility” in the body, not just flexibility, which would be gained if you just stretched. The difference is in the definition of Mobility, which states that, “Mobility is a combination of joint range of motion and muscle flexibility.”
So what this means to you is that you not only need to stretch, but you need to make sure that the joint that is crossed by the muscle you are stretching is mobile, aka, “free moving.” This is why I posted the tennis ball and foam roller videos, because they help the hip joints’ range of motion AND the muscles flexibility that crosses the hip joint. The result, increase mobility of the hip (and shoulder too since there is a tennis ball therapy video as well!).
To access those videos, just scroll down the page!
So, if you are making the big mistake of just stretching without making sure the joint is being addressed, you are wasting valuable time that could be making you get better quicker!
If you have questions about Mobility and stretching, just email Tyler or I, and we’ll be happy to answer any of your questions!
