Golf Muscle Activation By Larry Castro
The golf swing must be taught in terms of motion and not positions.
Larry Castro has created a revolutionary new process that is called Proprioceptive Muscle Activa-tion™ or Sports Muscle Activation™. He has been applying this process to the program that he has developed for golf, Golf Muscle Activation™ (GMA). This has created a new level of teaching, which is producing incredible results. Additional categories include TMA and SMA, which have evolved for correcting muscular imbalances in the body and improving performance. This process has dramatically improved functional capabilities in people of all age groups, elevating sports performance and delivering immediate results.
The theory behind the method rests upon his proprietary compound training session, which prepares the student to learn, improve performance, and play the game of golf, or any sport. This process is biomechanically based, and when the body is functioning properly, each muscle will engage on-demand without thought, and the body will function very efficiently. By performing GMA™, the body will be in better muscular balance and awareness throughout the workout, as well as through the learning session, which allows participants to gain the greatest results from their sessions. Performing the GMA exercises and teaching methods help to also address any inhibitions that may have occurred during a workout or golf swing.
Remember, working out in itself can be traumatizing to one’s muscles. It has been our experience that people who have performed PMA techniques within 24 hours of a workout see an increase in recovery and a reduction in muscle soreness. The goal of the training is to engage the proper sequencing and firing of muscles for an activity in order to have improved mechanics. Instructors have always said that their goal is to trigger something during the teaching session that will help the student feel the swing sensation and, otherwise, help develop neuro-muscular awareness of the movement. During typical golf fitness programs, I have witnessed the lack of prop-er simulation of movements, which essentially impact performance and the learning curve.
This is a game-changer, and teachers and students will see fantastic results. We will change the way the game of golf is taught... Larry Castro, PGFA Master Instructor
