WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR GOLF GAME? SOAK IN A HOT TUB

If you’re frustrated by your lack of progress on the links, it may be because your muscles aren’t warmed up when you begin play.  Many avid golf and tennis players find that soaking in a hot tub for 20 minutes before play is a way to loosen tight shoulder muscles. Many hot tubs, such as Hot Spring Spas, feature jets that specifically concentrate on the upper back, getting those tight shoulders to loosen.

An old favorite exercise from the 1920’s has made a comeback that will help, too. What you ask? Indian club swinging! They’re not just for old musty boxing gyms anymore.  Many trainers (including mine: Cody Moss at Survival of the Fitness in Seattle) are using Indian clubs to get rid of “computer shoulders’-the slump that comes from hunching over a computer all day. Computer shoulders can really wreck your game. Indian clubs strengthen these muscle groups: back and shoulders, pecs, biceps and triceps.  Strengthening your forearms improves your grip.  The improvement in shoulder efficiency and mobility, elbow and wrist flexibility and range of motion from swinging 1lb clubs around will astonish you!

Combine a gentle Indian club workout with a soak before playing golf and you’ll lower your handicap in no time.  If you’re shoulders and arms are too tight to start with Indian clubs, begin a gentle exercise program in your hot tub (before play!) using our Olympic Hot Tub Company Hot Tub Exercise Guide.  Download it, laminate it and you’ll be ready to begin your easy work out concentrating on your shoulders and arms.
