The meanest, most challenging, most rewarding game in golf is the game of golf, which is also the most popular game in America. Even though it is the most popular game, only a handful of people ever play it, and most of them areucks, right?

Why not you ask? Well, despite its popularity, one problem with golf is that you have to be pretty fit to do it. No matter how fit you are, unless you’re already a champ, you’re going to have to do a bit of conditioning to do this sport. Well, I bet that fitness trainer out there is already working on keeping your muscles mobile, don’t you think? Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to be too fit to begin learning how to play golf.

Rectangular Breathing

The first step to playing golf is to breathe into your stomach. Now, don’t panic, I won’t tell you how to breathe into your stomach, because I don’t want to spoil one of the best parts of playing a perfectly enjoyable game of golf. Instead, I will tell you how to breathe into your diaphragm.

With your diaphragm as the reference point, place your chest back into it, and draw your shoulders in towards your armpits. Now, take a deep breath, and inhale through your nose. Again, say to yourself, “I am going to play golf.”


Before you even take your first step on the green or the tee, give yourself a good five to six knees movements of the opposite kind. Imagine you are putting your golf club down for the first time, and you have just walked forward a few inches with a bad knee. Get yourself into a correct sitting position, with your hands by your side, your head back and your eyes looking forward. Then, slowly and with control, lower your arms and legs first. Without stopping even for a moment, keep your core straight, and lift your hips off the ground. Don’t swing your arms wildly or wildly swing your legs, because this will both cause unnecessary fatigue and irritation to your back and legs. Just let go of the golf club, and take more giant breaths of relief.

Getting yourself into deep breath-resisted relaxation is a long-term effort that will help you to forget about your problems long enough to let you breath. downward facing breathing
