Take a TPI Screening

Well, you simply select specific stretches and exercise based on the screening results. Its good to hit the area several different ways for better results. A certified fitness professional can help you choose a great routine specific for your body, some will even create a webpage that will allow you to view each exercise on video along with a schedule.
So HP, once the screening is done what is the best way to improve in these areas??
Captain Gene Mauch: You know what, I’m going to hang onto the wooden gun.
Allen Gamble: To give me back my real gun?
Captain Gene Mauch: No. I’m going to give you this… It’s a rape whistle. You blow that if you’re in any trouble, and someone with an actual gun will come and help you out.
[Quietly blows the whistle]

Great to have your contributions, would love to see you drum up some business here. As a golf coach, I found the TPI education extremely helpful. Doing the screening for a new student is a big eye opener and dramatically increases a coach’s chance at understanding what is actually happening. I would also like to say that most golf coaches who are TPI certified don’t know enough to help the student repair the physical issues. It normally involves more than a few fancy stretches. This is where an educated sports trainer can take over and help your student. CHALLENGE ANYONE? Maybe someone can take the screening test and give us the results, maybe BeKinetic will give you some advice.
well im a qualified Personal Trainer with a Sports Science degree and recently did my TPI course, it was a great course and really fascinating to get a understanding of how a golfers physical limitations can really affect their golf swing. Many golfers will early extend for example and no matter how many times their pro might tell them this if they are not physically capable of swinging their club without early extending, then they and their pro will be banging their heads against a brick wall!
Its not to say you cant be a good golfer with these physical limitations, I have seen plenty that make compensations and have enough skill to overcome them. However these compensations put extra stresses on the body in areas that can’t cope….how many golfers do we see with lower back pain, probably a result of tight hip flexors,weak glutes and abs and limited mobility in the hips and thoracic spine.
If we look more closely at early extension below…
If a golfer has generalized stiffness or asymmetry in the musculature and joints of the lower body these limitations will always prevent a good address position and force players to alter their spinal posture throughout the golf swing. Secondly, lead hip internal rotation is paramount for allowing the lower body to fully rotate without any forward thrust towards the golf ball. If the pelvis is unable to rotate around the lead hip due to joint or muscular restrictions then forward and lateral movements will dominate the pattern. Next the ability to separate your upper body from your lower body allows the lower body to stabilize while rotating your shoulders through impact. Limited trunk to pelvis separation is usually caused by reduced spinal mobility and shortened lat flexibility. Finally, the ability to stabilize your lower body is directly proportional to abdominal strength and control of the pelvic musculature, which help control the orientation and movement of the pelvis during the downswing. These muscles help prevent the lower body from thrusting towards the golf ball during the downswing.
All of the above can be improved with specific exercises to help mobility, flexibility and stability. This can then progress into developing strength and power. I think it will make the Golf pros life a lot easier and the golfer will see more rapid improvements in their game. Not only this but it will definately help with preventing injury keeping the golfer out on the course as well as improving the golfers general health and fitness for everyday life
anyway rant over :-), feel free to drop me a line with any questions
