The golf swing is a very explosive moment with club-head speeds of over 120mph reached in under 0.2secs, placing forces on the lower spine of over 8 times body weight, with over 900kg of force being applied to the ball.
So think the golf swing is an athletic movement now? During your round of golf or your practice session you complete many maximum effort swings. With the research showing that the repetitive nature of the golf swing and the forces applied to the body can result in injury, with the most common area being the lower back. Research highlights that strength and conditioning training and golf fitness training reduces the chances of injuries and improves golf performance.
