Did you know that your swing’s quality is directly proportional to the health of your feet?
Well yes, due to the fact that your feet manage the balance, the momentum that you are going to give the club and the coordination of your swing.
So you have to keep them healthy, flexible and reactive.
The foot is a fairly complex part of the body with a shape reminiscent of an arch; It’s responsible for cushioning the impacts that come from the ground, adjusting posture and maintaining balance.
Unfortunately, our feet tend to spend too many hours in shoes, causing them atrophy and not being able to be as reactive as they should be.
Here are 3 super simple exercises to wake up and reactivate your feet:
- Sitting, you massage your foot with a tennis ball back and forth, laterally and in circles; If there is not much pain, increase the pressure on the ball until you do it standing up.
- We place a hand towel on the floor and repeatedly try to catch it with our toes until we lift it off the ground
- With the help of an elastic band or simply while standing, let’s stand on our toes to train the calf, spread the toes, and train the calves.
These simple exercises done daily will make your feet more reactive, and your swing more fluid, harmonious and consistent.
In case of significant pain, fasciitis, or calcifications, do not hesitate to contact a physiotherapist in order to help you solve your problem and return to golf as soon as possible.
