“Get fit to play the sport. Don’t play the sport to get fit.”
From the 9th to 11th of February 2017 9.30AM at the Saujana Golf & Country Club, Shah Alam, PFC Studio in collaboration with Under Armour conducted its very own conditioning class in conjunction with the Maybank Championship.
Throughout the 4 days here at Saujana Golf & Country Club, we explained and demonstrated the importance of conditioning as an athlete and how core strength can exponentially improve one’s performance on the field. Additionally, participants are shown how conditioning training forces one to focus their energy output and refine their cardiovascular endurance.
The well-structured conditioning sessions were divided into 5 categories:
Ice Breakers (Warmup to the Warmup)
Requiring some form of physical exertion in preparation for the warmup. Ice breakers are meant to… break the ice.
To simulate the movements of the following exercises to get participants ready for the main exercises.
Participants engage their core muscles in some core activation work to “wake” the core muscles up.
Round 1 & 2
The “main course” of the session which consists of body weight exercises following:
• Upper Push/Pull
• Lower Pull/Push
To reduce muscle fatigue after the rigorous workout and to increase blood circulation within the muscles thus reducing muscle soreness.
