FITNESS TIP OF THE WEEK

AEROBIC CAPACITY FOR GOLF
The aerobics system is the system the body uses for everyday living. The aerobics system is so called because it is energy produce in the presence of air and activity. During vigorous activity the exercising muscles use increasing amounts of oxygen and produce carbon dioxide and water as byproducts. As the efficiency of the cardiovascular system in carrying oxygen to the muscles improves, i.e.. Through improved fitness, the total amount of oxygen consumed by the working muscles increases.

Aerobic energy requires the uses of carbohydrates and fats. Basically activities that utilise the aerobics metabolism are those which include...

a) increase the hear rate, that is more than 120 heart beats per minute
b) use the larger muscles of the body (thigh, trunk, arms and shoulders)
c) are carried out over an extended period (an minimum of 15 minutes)

During a round of golf, you are drawing on your aerobic capacity over an extended period of time. If your fitness levels are poor, your golf game will deteriorate as your muscle metabolism will be effected, swing changes will occur and lack of concentration will follow. Examples, walking, skiing, jogging, dancing, skipping, cycling, cross-country skiing, swimming, circuit training in a fitness centre.

Aerobic activity should be done at least 3 to 4 times per week with greater than 30 to 40 minutes per session.
