In your golf swing this exercise supports the following:
Bend your right knee, placing your foot wider than hip width apart from your left leg. Arms are perpendicular to your body. Inhale as you press your right leg into the floor, exhale and lift your right hip off the floor. Inhale as you return to the starting position.
Repeat as you lift slightly higher, now lift the hip and the first two vertebrae of the lumbar spine. Return to the starting position.
Repeat lifting the spine off the floor, one more vertebrae at a time, higher each repetition and eventually moving into the thoracic spine. Return to the starting position again.
Practice this exercise for five to ten repetitions and switch sides.
