Golf season is here. Finally, it's really here!

But is your body?

Swinging a golf club can be an aggressive exercise with multiple repetitions, especially when some of us tend to "overswing."

Doing repetitive actions over and over puts us at risks for potential injuries.

The cure (yep, you guessed it!) is to start conditioning your body.  

Keeping your body strong and flexible will not only reduce this risk, but it will help you to enjoy the game with greater longevity.

During the next month we will provide top notch information and exercises to get your body healthier, stronger, and more conditioned. 

Active leg raise

Depending on your fitness level perform 3-15 repetitions and 1-2 sets.

This is an excellent exercise to start with and its part of our Feel Good Exercises which are designed to help you gain strength, flexibility, and balance.
