Before you play a round of golf, it's best to loosen your muscles and joints with some warm-up exercises. Here are five quick moves that you can do between the clubhouse and the first tee that will help get the blood pumping.
1. Arm circles- Raise your arms to shoulder height and start making small circles with your hands, widen the arc, change speeds and reverse the direction.
2. Shoulder stretch- Take your 3 wood and place your hands at either end. Keeping your body still, hold the club parallel to your waist and then lift it up over your head and behind you. Repeat the motion.
3. Torso turns- Hold a club parallel to the ground and turn your shoulders to the left and then to the right. Repeat the motion.
4. Knee bends- Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and lower your body by bending at the knees, then raise back up. Keep your upper body still. Repeat the motion.
5. Standing toe touches- Stand with your arms outstretched at shoulder height and with your feet spread apart, bend at the waist and touch the fingers of your right hand to the toes on your left foot. Repeat with the left hand and right foot.
