Ah, those aching hips. A sedentary lifestyle and poor posture often contribute to excessive flexion and tension in the hip flexors. Connected to lumbar health, the mobility in the hips can relieve tension in the low back.
The following hip mobility exercise is designed for your post-round exercise series and allows the body to move you deeper into the stretch by using the breath and gravity to deepen the stretch, not muscular tension. All you need is a chair a few minutes of your time while watching Golf Channel.
