Tips on buying Golf clubs for ladies

Choosing a golf club is as difficult as choosing a wedding dress. It can be overwhelming and time-consuming since there are various styles and sizes, hence in order to choose the right one, you will need to know what the differences are. Before going on to the tips for choosing gold clubs, here is what is different between women’s and men’s golf clubs.

The difference

There are a few things that are different when it comes to golf clubs for ladies and men. Perhaps the most noticeable ones are the differences between the size and weight. With lady golf clubs, they tend to be lighter and smaller than the ones designed for men.

Ladies’ clubs usually have:

1. Shorter shafts
2. Smaller diameters
3. Larger club heads to provide neater hits

Also, since graphite is not only lighter but more flexible, women golfing with these clubs also have an advantage when it comes to shock mitigation.

Tips on choosing a golf club

There are various types of golf clubs to choose from and we will take a look at the most used ones:

1. Woods

This type features elongated shafts and bigger, rounder heads when compared to other types. These features make wood better for positions where the player needs the ball to travel further in the air.

For women who are just beginning their golfing career, the driver, or the 1-wood club as it is often referred to, is considered to be one of the most difficult clubs to become proficient in. The size of the club is around 44 inches, which makes it one of the longest clubs that you could have in your bag.

When compared to the drivers, the smaller heads and shafts of fairway woods allow the golfer to have more control over their swing. Hence, beginners are often advised to start off with a fairway. A women’s golf bag belonging to someone who just started learning should contain one driver and one or two fairway woods. Keep in mind that the shaft is the most important part of the wood, since with a proper shaft comes an increase in both distance and accuracy.

2. Irons

Irons have thin clubheads which are ridged to allow the golf ball to spin once the golfer hits it. Ladies who are learning the basic of golf should choose cavity back style irons. These feature clubheads that are hollowed out, hence allowing the player to position the weigh of the club head around the area instead of at the center. This is referred to as the “perimeter weighting” and it is designed to allow the player to enjoy the game.

If you are someone who is a beginner, you should consider adding some of the mentioned irons to your golf bag. The best choices are steel or graphite irons, since using them will increase the speed and the distance.

3. Hybrids

These clubs are designed to replace the long irons in a golfer’s bag since the low trajectory and small head makes it difficult for beginners to use the long irons. Female hybrid clubs have the most benefits. They combine the design elements of irons and woods in order to offer the player the best of both clubs. Their expanded surface allows the player to hit the ball cleanly and at the same time, they will allow a reduction in the drift of the ball. Replacing your long irons with hybrids is something that you will need to do when starting off. They will most certainly minimize any negative effects that long irons have on beginner’s games.

Conclusion

When choosing a golf club, keep in mind that the cheaper ones might be better when you are just starting off. Visit Golfing Exchange for some great deals on your equipment. Once your game improves, you can easily move to more expensive clubs, and by then it will be easier to choose a club since you will already know what you need.

The Greatest WWE Legends According to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

/

Dwayne Johnson was looking back on the 17th anniversary WrestleMania 18 match. His dream match was with Hulk Hogan, whom he won and became WWE hero. According to the Rock, the three people who are the greatest ever WWE legends are Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. He also believes that these three professional wrestlers have paved the way for him.

He said that he was able to become a WWE hero only because of The Immortal One, the WWE Hall of Famers Flair and Austin. They are the ones who saw that there is something special in Dwayne and gave him a chance. He believes that that dream match would have never been possible if it wasn’t for those three legends.

The Rock was a 10-time world champion and went on to become one of the biggest and highest paid celebrities in Hollywood. While he was reminiscing about that event, which happened 17 years ago, he shared a post on Instagram, which he captioned by saying:
‘Torch passed. Grateful. This past weekend @WWE celebrated the 17th anniversary of what was billed as “ICON vs ICON” to determine who would go down in @WWE history as THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME. It was yours truly, VS The Immortal Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania. What made this match so special was that there was no Heavyweight Championship on the line. Just two men. Just two careers.

And 85,000+ of the most insane ELECTRIC crowd I have ever had the privilege to perform in front of. It was almost as if every single person that night in the Toronto SkyDome made up their mind that they would give every ounce of energy they had because they knew this match was only going to be seen once in a lifetime. My friend and childhood hero, Hulk Hogan passed the torch to me on this historic night which decreed me becoming “THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME”, but the truth is – to be – the GOAT are the three men below who paved the way for me and so many others in pro wrestling. @hulkhogan, @ricflairnatureboy, @steveaustinbsr.

source: wmagazine.com

I just worked very hard, connected with the audience and caught a break. These GOATS were good enough to recognize I had something to offer and graciously passed the torch. Grateful.’
Even though The Rock is a very successful actor with plenty of projects going on, he hasn’t forgotten about his WWE career and the moment when he got the torch passed on by Hogan. Dwayne Johnson also stated that he would love to return to the ring one day. And we would all definitely love that too!

Should you let your kids train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

There’s no doubt that the most successful martial artists started training from their earliest ages. Unlike other sports and disciplines, martial arts require ages to learn and even longer to master. With that being said, it’s a really good idea to let your child train from their very young age. Today we’re covering the benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and why it’s much better if started from pre-teen years.

What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Brazilian-Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art focused on grappling and taking down your opponent, defeating him in your exceptional ground game. Just like every other martial art, it requires a lot of discipline and wisdom which is gained through the process of training. This fighting style and technique is widely used in the mixed martial arts branch and is definitely ranked among the top 3. There’s not a top tier UFC fighter that doesn’t excel at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

What are the benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Just like we mentioned earlier, discipline and wisdom are just a few of the things you’ll earn from the process of practicing this martial art. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu requires a lot of strength, flexibility, and speed. The trainee will improve in all of these areas through years of constant training and practicing. You can learn more about it here.

Why you should let your child train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Many parents think that letting their child practice martial arts is a bad idea because they will get into fights at school or on the streets if they learn how to “fight.” This is really untrue, and we’re going to explain why. Every martial arts master, sensei or teacher, will always explain that fighting is wrong and should never be done outside of the ring, as the first lesson. I personally trained two martial arts, and every time the first words from my tutor were: “If you fight outside of the gym, never come here again.” And you can be absolutely sure that this will be the case no matter what martial arts gym we’re talking about. Martial Arts are created so that there can be peace, not war. So, you absolutely should not worry about your child becoming problematic due to training. Let’s talk about some more benefits now. First and most important is safety. Knowing that your child knows how to defend if he/she ever finds him/herself in such a situation will make you feel much calmer. Plus, when you join a martial art gym, you make tons of new friends. And those friends will never be some that might potentially “ruin” your child by making them smoke or drink since everyone that trains are living a healthy lifestyle. Martial Arts tutors are like second fathers. If they see that your child is going through is a hard time or is failing at school they will absolutely help and encourage them to do better. And there are countless physical benefits as well. Training from a young age will allow your child’s body to adapt and develop properly so that they grow in a healthy and physically ready individual.

How to become a personal trainer

Are you a fitness freak? Do you want to see the passion turn into your profession? Do you want to spread fitness knowledge around you? There are a lot of people who don’t only want to be serious about fitness but also want this as a profession. If you are one of them, then we can help you out!

You are only 5 steps ahead to your career, stay tuned!

The certificate is a must-have

If you want this as your career, you need to be certified first. Customers always love to work with the people who are institutionally trained and knowledgeable. In this sector, the experience is also very important. Being a personal trainer will not be very easy, but if you get one certificate, then your process will be easier.

There are a lot of institutions and organization that afford your training for the fitness industry. Before you get into any course, complete the high school diploma or GED. There are a lot of certificates but the most popular ones are ACE, NASM, ISSA, ACSM, and NSCA. If you want to join any specific gym then first you have to learn which certificates are allowed to join that gym.

Mark a Sub Goal

Yes, your aim is to be a personal trainer. But after being a personal trainer, what will you work for? DO you want to have a room of some selected clients and work there on their fitness? Or do you want to work with selected clients individually? You have to keep in mind that a group fitness instructor and a personal trainer, though both of them are certified, are different.

You can choose any of them and the selection depends on your preferences. If you are unable to choose any of them or you like both of them then you have opportunities to do both works. Both of them require different certificates. Doing both of them together may cost you extra money. You can do one first and then do the other later. You can choose any of them that suits best for your career goals.

Investments

Now, let’s get into the money matter. We all know that courses are a little expensive and when the profession is out-of-the-league like personal trainer then you may have to face little more difficulties. These programs are not cheap. There are package bundles for the courses. They may range in between $400 to $1000.

The price basically depends on the organization you are taking a degree from, the course plan, the course type and the course period. If you want your course to be more specific and proficient then you can add up elements like online portal, texts, tests, and flashcards — the adding up of these elements you cost you a little more. If you do not have money and still you want to do the job, you can talk to any gym and manage them to sponsor you.

Get a Gym

Throughout the course, all you have to do is study. Once you get your certificate, your work will be to find your gym. If you want your own gym and have enough money, make your one. If you do not have, then you will get two options to go for. You can work for some corporations or you can work as an independent training supplier.

You can go to any corporation and have a job there. Get a contract there and work for some time. You can have your gym after having practical experience there. If you want to be an independent contractor, then you can find a gym that will allow you to be one independent contractor.

Practice makes a Man Perfect

If you get a certificate and do not work, the whole process and effort will go in vain. You have to keep practicing when you are at your gym. You cannot expect everything to be perfect in 7 days. You have to get practical experiences and continue trying to be perfect.

Do not behave that you know everything about the work. As you are a new trainer, always keep the door open for gaining new things. Get insurance as fast as you can. It is better to be safe now than being sorry later. Working in a gym may cause harm to your body and so you have to be prepared for safeguarding your body and lessen the damage.

The most important thing you need to be a Personal Trainer is determination. You have to be determined and know that your path will not be easy but you have to do it. You have to keep putting effort and keep your interest alive!  Get more fitness tips and guides at Pushtofitness.

A Complete Guide to Choosing the Best Crossfit Shoes

Crossfit is considered one of the most intense and hardest sports in the world. Crossfit is a global community with over 4 million people who are each working very hard to get better, faster, strong, and ultimately, fitter.

One of the most important aspects of Crossfit is your equipment. Having the best shoes for Crossfit is imperative if you wish to succeed in such a sport. As Crossfit focuses on full body exercises, having the best shoes is very important as your feet will be your foundation.

source: crossfitdux.com

So because of that reason, we are going to tell you a complete guide on how to choose the best shoes for Crossfit.

Why Specific Shoes?

source: crossfitrecursive.com

We touched on it before but it’s important that we lay out the reasons why you need the best shoes for Crossfit. Since Crossfit focuses on your entire body, the demands for unique shoes are high in this sport. You will need to buy specific aerobic shoes that will support your weight, be flexible enough for a wide range of exercises, and will manage to balance everything all together.

What Features Should You Focus On

There are different features that better suit different workouts when considering Crossfit shoes. While some features do benefit various workouts, we are going to tell you about all of them in our ultimate guide.

•    Shoe Drop

source: experience.scheels.com

The difference in height between the heels to the toe is one of the most important features to look for in Crossfit shoes as said by CrossFitSurvival. Higher shoe drop greatly benefits moving exercises, but in your case, you don’t need that high shoe drop. Since most of the time, you will be standing still, the lower the drop the better. Usually, Crossfit shoes have a 4mm shoe drop, while most running shoes have 8mm.

•    Hard Sole

Most running shoes have more flexible shoe soles to better compliment the various movements of the feet. On the other hand, weightlifting shoes have a harder sole to better support to the upper body and maintain you in a proper position during lifting. The best Crossfit shoes should come somewhere in the middle and by having both harder and flexible sole, you will be able to run easier and keep yourself in a firm position.

•    Durable Outer Shoe

source: elms.readyhosting.com

When buying Crossfit shoes, make sure to always check out the outer parts of the shoes and check if they look sturdy enough. Since Crossfit is very rigorous on shoes, they can get broken in a matter of months. Add to the fact that Crossfit shoes go as much as $150 for a pair, having one with a durable outer part will be extremely beneficial for both you and your wallet.

•    Lightweight

source: yournextstep.net

In the ideal world, you would want shoes that will not weigh you down as most of the time you would be lifting heavy weights. Crossfit puts a lot of demand on your body and you wouldn’t want your shoes to drag you down even further. Choosing shoes that are lightweight will not hinder your training on a daily bases. Some people go to the extreme lengths and get gloves for the feet, which mimic the closest thing to being barefoot. However, wearing mimicking the closest thing to barefoot will hinder on your balance, stability, flexibility, and you will lose support.

 

Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ Reached Out to WWE’s Roman Reigns When He Heard That He Went into Remission

We all know that Dwayne Johnson is a sweetheart. And he proved that to us once again when he reached out to Roman Reigns when he heard that he went into remission.

Roman Reigns announced earlier this week that he has good news, his cancer had gone into remission. He posted on his social ‘We hit a home run’ and ‘The good news is, I’m in remission Y’all!’.

It’s been 10 years after the initial diagnosis of Roman Reigns leukemia. But only in October, he was forced to give up his WWE Universal Championship because his leukemia had returned. He tearfully went to the ring to announce the crowd that he can’t fulfill his role and that he now must fight that awful disease.

 

But now that he is in remission, we can’t wait to see what he does next and we are also so happy that he is on a path of recovery.

Things to consider before choosing the best running shoes for flat feet

As an individual with flat feet condition and would love to continue running must be given a chance to follow his passion by using the best running shoes for flat feet. In my opinion, one’s imperfections or even a disability must not be a reason to stop you from doing physical activities. It is true that you may have a flat foot and finding a perfect shoe for you is quite tough.  But will this be a reason to turn your back from your passion?

A lot of people would love to run but we’re not even capable of standing or walking on their own. While you, having a flat foot, still have the chance to walk and stand on your own feet. So, you are still lucky because you were just with this condition. Now, if you would really want to do any outdoor activity, then you can just always wear the right pair of shoe.

Know your feet condition

You may be considered as an individual with a flat foot when you have fallen arches. This means that your foot comes with low or very low arches. In such condition, your foot or both of your feet on the ground is flat. I wonder how your foot, having 33 joints and are attached to 26 bones.

Do you know that your arches act like a shock absorber as you make steps? It also plays an important function because it needs to distribute your body’s weight across your legs and feet. If the arch is properly structured, then you would surely have a good way to walk. Aside from that, it must also be sturdy and flexible as well. So that it can adapt or absorb the stress of the ground.

It is also difficult to have flat feet because the foot usually rolls to the inner sides. And then, the ligaments, as well as the muscles, are strained. This pain makes one feel uncomfortable. And then, when things get worse, some of your bodies parts, such as legs, knees, lower back, hips, and calf might also be affected.

Why will you run even with flat feet?

Well, who would not like to go out for an exercise, right? A lot of individuals today run along the parks or shores to exercise or work out. This only means that a lot of people are concerned about their health. Anyway, this is an exercise that everybody can always do without any machine. No wonder why a lot of people prefer working out this way.

Actually, you should know that running is always good for your health. When you run, you sweat. If you can do this regularly, then it would be a good way to maintain your desired body weight. I guess you are aware that running means that you may also burn fats or calories. In fact, a person with an average weight of 160 pounds may actually burn over 850 calories per hour. So, if you have plans of losing weight, then I suggest you do running activities.

Now, with your flat foot condition, make sure to get a shoe that surely suits you. You have to do this to avoid difficulties as well as injuries. I know that there are a lot of shoes available on the market, but do not just wear it because you like it or it is expensive. And then, make sure that this is something that you can use every day because you will surely have a goal and a timeframe to follow.

Finding the shoe

I know that finding the right pair of shoe will give you a headache, so you have to be patient. Again, find the ones that suit your flat foot condition. Make sure that this pair of shoe will give your foot, heels, and toes additional support. If you can find this, then it means that this shoe will surely last for a longer time. Of course, this must have a really good and high quality, too.

When you look at the shoes thoroughly. You have to check if the structure is right for your flat feet. Aside from that, you must also check on the insoles because this will be very helpful for the stability of the arches and heels. This will help in reducing pain that the muscles may receive from ground pressure.

Come to think of it and decide well. You have a lot of questions to answer. Is it really designed for flat feet’s running shoes? If this is just meant for walking, then it means that it has fewer standards and may not last long when used for running. Remember that when you run, you pass more stress to the shoes. Check the right type of shoes on ShoeHero.com, and  make sure that it will be used for the right activity.
