Embarrassed by all the huffing and puffing that seems to emanate from your direction as you and your golfing buddies walk from one hole to another? Getting tired of looking at the folds of fat around your waist as you get ready for another golf game in the morning?
You probably need to lose weight, and lose weight the right way. A fit and trim body can do wonders for your swing and overall golf performance especially if your swing leaves too much to be desired.
Weight loss for golfers is basically the same as weight loss for a couch potato. You need to do some work if you want to see yourself trim down. However, weight loss for golfers usually does not involve going for diets, since the game can seriously deplete you of your energy reserves just by walking from one hole to another.
The first thing that we can do to lose weight is the most simple yet often the hardest to do: cut back on what we eat. If our energy expenditure is less than what we take in, this results an increase in weight. Simply put, if we eat one too many a potato chip and spurn the treadmill with the disgust befitting a trip to the dentist, we'll eventually get bloated and fat and, it's bye-bye to that golf swing that we spend all our waking hours dreaming about.
Sp if you are serious about perfecting that swing that will your golfing buddies in the dust, you have to get to work. Weight loss for golfers usually involves regular cardio training. Thirty to forty-five minutes a day will burn you a lot of calories and give you some results within a few weeks. It will also build up your endurance and stamina, allowing you to play for longer durations on the course.
The best thing to do is to follow a program designed by a qualified professional trainer. Weight loss programs for golfers are often incorporated with golf performance training so that you can work on both at the same time. A program has the advantage of being tailored according to your needs and the presence of a trained professional can help you use equipment correctly, as well as use the appropriate form and technique when it comes to golf-specific cardiovascular and strength training.
To ensure that you lose weight on a regularly basis until you reach your intended goal weight you must work out consistently. Again we see the advantage of having a professional trainer guiding us through the program because they can also motivate us to work out on a regular basis. You can even you're your trainer pestering rights so that they can continue to pressure you into working out if you don't feel like dong so.
Losing weight can help you perfect that swing that you have been working so hard to achieve. It may seem hard at first, especially if you are not used to regular work-out periods, but as long as you are motivated to lose weight and willing to take the steps to do so, you'll soon be seeing the fruits of your labor in your golf swing in no time.
