Do you notice the resemblance here?

As golf courses have been open a while, many of you are taking advantage of having more time to play than usual. ⁣

However, as many courses still don’t have caddies, golfers are finding themselves carrying their bags more often-which in itself is a unique fitness challenge if you aren’t used to walking around with an awkward load⁣.

Because everyone knows the fatigue that sets in around the 12th hole, but it is a whole other level if you are not conditioned to withstand the constant adaptations of carrying your bag over ever changing terrain. ⁣

Whenever carrying an offset load, a golfer’s trunk muscles contract intensely to maintain postural control.⁣

This is where loaded carries for TIME come in, instead of trying to carry the heaviest weight possible for.a short distance, we go a little lighter for time which provides us postural endurance, so we can mitigate any neck/back/hip pain carrying the golf bag⁣

What muscles do this? ⁣

What everyone refers to as “the core”. All the muscles that support the spine & pelvis. Golfers love the core. ⁣

Carries can really FIRE up the core. Being strong there allows you to transfer power effectively from the legs to the hips to the club.⁣

• Own the start position
• Maintain full body tension throughout the entire duration of the carry.
• Keep shoulders, ribs, and hips stacked over each other

We are not focused on just strength here but strength-endurance so go with a moderate load that you can maintain proper form & tension with for a 45-75s period 2-4x a week using different variations 🦍⁣
