There's more to golf than your golf swing. Use common sense to lower your risk of injury on the course: 1. Warm up. Before you golf, walk or jog for a few minutes. Then try a few gentle stretches. 2. Start slowly. Work up to your desired level of activity. 3. Think overall fitness. Include aerobic activity, stretching and strength training in your fitness routine. 4. Lift your clubs carefully. Keep your back straight and use the strength of your legs to lift your clubs and other heavy objects.
Love to golf? You may look forward to every minute you can spend on the course. But it pays to be reasonable. Limit your sun exposure. While golfing, watch for symptoms of dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke. Red flags might include a headache, dizziness, nausea, excess fatigue, rapid heartbeat or confusion. Drink plenty of water, and cut your game short if necessary.
Don't have time for a full 60-minute workout? Don't sweat it. Divide and conquer. Shorter bursts of exercise, such as short walks spread throughout the day, offer health benefits too. Whether you're trying to lose weight or improve your cardiovascular fitness, the key is to get moving. Take the stairs, walk during your lunch break, and do household chores at a pace fast enough to get your heart pumping. It all adds up!
