(Text on screen): Swing Into Action. 2: Getting the blood flowing
Simon Holmes, professional golf coach: Tim, we've arrived on the driving range. You've got a round of golf today. But before we start reaching for your golf clubs, we're gonna try to warm you up, all right?
So, we're not just talking about warming up and sort of trying to stretch out. We actually need to get you really warmed up. We need to get that engine running.
So, we're just talking about getting the blood pumping a little bit, making sure that we get your system really functioning.
So, if you do have an option to use an exercise bicycle, that's a great option. We're just talking, like, 10 minutes, pretty low pace, just to get you moving.
Or, what we're gonna do, is just walk up to the first green and back, which is 800 yards. So, a nice, brisk pace. And we just want to get that blood pumping, slightly breathless, and off we go.
Tim, we've got a couple of different options to warm you up. We've talked about having access to an exercise bike or a brisk walk up to the first hole or down to the 18th tee and back in.
Or, if you do want to stay on the driving range, this is a good little exercise. Just hands nice and down, just below belt-high and just knee up to hand and back down again.
And if you start to get that sort of pumping, you'll ready get within sort of a low impact, a good exercise, get you slightly warmed up.
So, set those hands out in front of you. Yeah, keep them down to start. You can even go lower. Make it easier at the beginning.
And just get those knees to hands, one at a time there, try to balance the other foot. That's it. Raise them up a bit. Looks a bit easy for you.
There you go. So, that's a good exercise. And just start to increase the beat a bit.
And all we're trying to do here is with low impact, because we're not warmed up yet, start to get the heart going. Start to get the blood pumping around the system so as we do start to stretch, we're stretching out slightly warmed up muscles. There will be no risk of injuring those.
