With the golf season starting back up, it is time to get our bodies ready with simple Golf Swing Training Exercises.  The following exercises are designed to make you more mobile in key areas that are important for your golf swing.  Perform this quick routine 5 days a week for the next few weeks to prep your body for the long season ahead.

THE MOVES

Hip Flexor Stretch – These muscles also affect the pelvis and low back.  With the amount of sitting we commonly do each day, there is a good chance these muscles need some attention.

Stand 6” away from a wall with your back facing the wall. Lean left shin with pointed foot on the wall. Stand tall and keep upper body parallel to the wall. Hold for 30 seconds, do 2 times.

Lax ball to shoulderLAX Ball to Posterior Shoulder – By loosening up the infraspinatus muscle, you will have increased arm action during the back swing and follow through.

 

 

 

 

Fire HyrdantFire Hydrants – Great for mobility of the hips as well as added strength.

Begin on “all 4’s”. Make sure your arms are locked out, your back is flat and your head is facing the ground.

Keeping your back flat and your knee bent at 90 degrees slowly lift your left leg up and out to the side until it is level with your back. Repeat 5-10 times on each side.
