Golfing Recovery
‘Getting the edge’ and keeping it
I am an ultra-marathon recovery specialist who works with ultra distance runners and walkers(seewww.worldrun.org
 
) but I work in other areas as well-I deal with muscle soreness, stiffness,tightness, and ongoing recovery problems of the legsGetting a fast recovery is important for the ultra marathoner because they have to spend as muchtime as possible on the track getting as much distance as they can in the length of time specified bythe event organizers-this can be 6-12-24-48 hours or ranging up to 2 or 3 years as done by JesperOlsen on his world runsThe less time they spend on the recovery table during an event, the more quality time they canspend gaining distance-if their nearest competitor is spending 1 1/2 hours in the recovery area, andthey can cut their own time in recovery down to 10-15 minutes, it gives them ‘the edge’ they needin distanceLight Manual Muscle Relaxation was developed for ultra people who only needed something lightand easy to do track or roadside in the extreme conditions they compete in-but the advantage to thegolfer using the same recovery system to is that they can spend more time on the course, playing orpractising-a better recovery may also help them keep their edge during tournaments
 
The Golfer Post Event Recovery using the World Run Recovery System2Copyright 2008 Michael Gillan ultra marathon recovery specialisthttp://golf-recovery.aching-legs-relief.com Tightness and loss of flexibility in the legs and lower back can affect playing power-these areas cantighten up while walking around the course; if you just sit down just for a few minutes for a rest, themuscles will cool down and stiffen upOn standing to tee off, the muscles will have shortened making it impossible to swing with fullmuscle strength and possibly putting the muscles at risk of ripping some fibers-it can also put stresson the skeletal system, which also adds to the injury risk To reduce the negative effects of cooled un-stretched muscles, the golfer should be doing warmingexercises during any break in play-unfortunately, not many golfers do, and not many of them have asports massage therapist, or physiotherapist to help them mid tournament when they need it mostWhether amateur or professional, most golfers would like to get the edge over any residual musclesoreness and stiffness from walking around the course- muscle stiffness in the legs can affect theplayer’s flexibility reducing the strength of swing and follow throughLight Manual Muscle Relaxation may give the golfer a pro-active do-it-yourself recovery systemwhen there is no other help available

It is a clean-green-recovery machine
Light Manual Muscle Relaxation-an alternative simpleoil free, effective option
 It offers an alternative way of assisting the body to recover without interfering with the healingprocesses that are already occurring-and it does this without putting the muscles at risk of beinginjured by too much pressure generated by the ends of the fingers working into the tissues at thisearly stage of recovery.The system works by using the bodies own mechanics of bones, joints, and muscles to push usedblood and toxins from the lower legs-these can then be replaced by fresh blood-oxygen filled bloodwhich will enhance recovery time and speed up the recovery processThe advantage of this type of system is that it gives independence to the golfer to take part in theirown recovery-it gives them freedom to start the own recovery when play is finished

Predictability
 
Consistency
