Chronic inflammation in the body can cause a whole host of problems from arthritis, asthma, aches and pains, to more serious problems – Inflammation has strong links with cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancers and diabetes. Whilst there will be multiple varying factors affecting inflammation, such as genetic predispositions (as there is with anything), lifestyle (exercise, stress levels, etc.) and environmental factors, diet can play a large role.

For athletes, this may play a role in injury prevention. I work with golfers of all levels, but amongst the elite, injury is a big problem. A player which has to take a month out for injury is falling behind with their practice schedule, and it may affect their ranking, or even if they can keep their tour card if they are on the professional tours. Eating the right foods and following the advice here may also aid in recovering quicker for injuries when they do occur.

Swing Man Golf Premier Member Gary S

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
