A Static Stretch For The Calf Muscles

Golf Fitness

By Steve

When it comes to golfing, having strong and flexible calf muscles can be paramount to success.

Stretching the calf muscles helps golfers increase their range of motion, maintain balance during their swings and put more power into each shot.

Additionally, stretching the calf muscles has been shown to reduce the risk of common golf injuries that may occur from taking forceful and repetitive swings.

To make sure your calf muscles are in tip-top shape for a good round of golf, you should include a static stretch for the calves in your routine.

When done properly, this simple exercise can help improve your performance and minimise any potential injuries.

It’s very easy to pull a calf muscle when you’re playing golf, especially if you are walking around a hilly course which has the odd ‘cardiac hill’ to negotiate.
