Golfer’s Weekend Workout! 5-13-17

If your weather is like ours, it’s time for golfers to be out. Because I have many friends and clients who golf, I decided to do a Golfer’s Weekend Workout!

Recently, I was talking to another fitness professional who specializes in Crossfit and golf. We discussed how much need there is for Pilates and yoga as a balancing sport. Pilates and yoga restore your body to  neutral so that you can lift more or have a better golf game tomorrow.

With that in mind, I created this workout, which is truly a combination of yoga poses and Pilates exercises. Weekend Workout! is a 20-30 minute yoga and Pilates-inspired workout. Today’s workout is right at 30 minutes, so make sure to set aside that amount time before you golf.

If you are on a hard surface, you will want a blanket for under your knees. Also, bring over one of your golf clubs. We will be stretching the front of our legs, so if you can’t reach your ankle, bring a strap to help.

Please remember, do not start an exercise program without first consulting your physician.
