JUNE 2015 – Do you suffer common faults during your golf swing? End your frustrations once and for all. Equipment technology, sport technique and your body are all opportunities to change your game.
I often encounter individuals that have invested a fortune on golf lessons, new clubs, and the latest trend in swing analysis yet failed to achieve their desired performance results.
Many of these individuals failed to work on the one piece of the puzzle that they have full control over, their body.
MAY 2015 – It is the time of year when kids gear up for soccer, tennis and track. Novice and experienced runners, cyclists, and triathletes immerse themselves into race season.
Golf courses, tennis courts and hiking trails see increased traffic. Even summer travel plans require more walking. All this activity increases the frequency of questions I receive regarding shoe orthotics.
The answer depends on your unique needs and goals.
APRIL 2015 – Do you experience muscle tightness during golf? Does it take you more than 15 minutes to warmup before play or do you tighten up on the back nine? Has your game flat-lined despite working with your golf pro? Many golfers struggle with the sensation of tightness despite their golf stretching routine.
Let me start by saying, not all tightness is created equal and this issue is quite complex.
MARCH 2015 – If you love college basketball then you love March Madness. Is your team a favorite, a Cinderella story, a bubble team or will March end in heartache? The anticipation and tournament stories excite us. Who’s going pro vs returning next year? Which team falls short with a key player sidelined by a sports injury? Can anybody beat Kentucky this season?
These human stories captivate us and the faces of both players and fans reflect the intense emotions experienced win or lose. As a movement specialist, I love watching these kids move but there’s another story that concerns me most.
FEBRUARY 2015 – Think you have good form when working out? What if there’s more to good form than meets the eye? Popular belief suggests good form means looking in the mirror or having a trainer watch you to ensure an exercise looks good.
However, you can look good in the mirror, yet be using all the wrong muscles to complete the task.
JANUARY 2015 – Would you get into a fast moving race car knowing it lacked brakes? Unless you’re a true daredevil the answer is no.
So why do the same thing with your body? Race car drivers rely on their team to provide three distinct areas of performance: 1) acceleration mechanisms (i.e. engine and fuel injection systems); 2) deceleration and control mechanisms (i.e. brakes, steering mechanisms and tires); and 3) driver skill (sport technique).
During movement your body must also possess efficiency in all three areas to perform at its best.
