FitLinks: Fitness Regimen of #1 Golfer

  • Print Friendly and PDFPrint

March was a busy month for fitness news, which ranged from “Coregasms” to how keeping your hands cool while working out can increase exercise capacity. In case you were wondering, a coregasm is when a women experiences an orgasm simply by doing certain core exercises. A coregasm study published in March spread like wildfire across the web and even on TV.

Possibly the most interesting article this month was about the fitness regimen of the world’s #1 golfer Rory McIlroy. Rory went from a skinny golfer to a more muscular and powerful athlete in only a couple of years. The transformation helped propel him to the #1 spot in the world. How his problem areas were identified and the reasons why beefing up has helped his golf game are very interesting. You can find that article under the “General Fitness Article” section below.

      Regarding the “No major change in exercise habits” article: If people could only realize the potential damaging effects to their health by not exercising, perhaps more would start to take action. More programs to increase awareness of the benefits of increased activity are needed.
