Using A Golf Swing Trainer May Surprise You


Many amateur golfers start out playing golf for fun. Most would like to keep it that way and that is precisely the reason why the mention of a golf swing trainer, however much that would help them improve their game will not only draw loud groans but for most they will already start feeling tired at the mere thought.

That is absolutely normal. Who wants the rigors of a golf swing trainer, and the sweat and hard physicals that one imagines, must surely go with it? To be perfectly honest, nobody that I know.

Yet a golf swing trainer need not fit the image of what is on most amateur golfer's minds. More so when they hear that professionals are dramatically improving their games with the help of golf swing trainers.

The truth is that the golf swing training is not only light and very specific for the improvement of the golf swing, but for many who start, it ends up being interesting. Actually the golf swing trainer gets even more interesting when your game improves in great huge leaps and bounds.

For example the use of a simple 'medicine ball', taking turns back and through holding a 4 to 6 pound ball can make an extremely big difference to a golf swing. And the golf swing trainer need not overload you and overstrain you with this simple exercise.

Most of the medicine ball work actually involves abdominal work, which should be rotational rather than straight strenuous crunches, which will never improve your driving distance. The trick is to do rotational movements with added weight. Not heavy weight though. So don't put off the thought of using a golf swing trainer.
