The weakest part of most golfers’ bodies is the part they engage the most – the core. Your core is your power center. A strong center is key to not only improving your golf game, but helping to prevent back injury.
A powerful swing generates a lot of force through nearly every joint in your body, and especially the back. Yet the lower back, or lumbar spine, is not designed for a lot of rotation. So the more stability you can achieve for your low back, the more you can optimize your swing.
60 degrees to improve muscle mass. An 8-week low back pain study3 compared treatment in supine (0 degrees) and inverted positions (30 and 60 degrees). While both inverted angles proved more beneficial to patients than just lying down, a routine program of inverting to 60 degrees produced the most effective results in not only reducing back pain, stiffness and flexibility… but also improving muscle mass in the lower back area.
Work your core without the pain. While many Teeter users simply enjoy relaxing at any angle between 0-60 degrees, over half use the Teeter while full inverted (90 degrees). The Teeter easily and securely locks-out so you can stretch while fully upside down and even challenge your core with inverted crunches or sit-ups – the BEST way to work your core because there’s no uncomfortable loads on your back.
