Staying Flexible Focused on the Course - Week 16

RSS

Welcome to our series Flexible & Focused! With my golf fitness tips you can improve your golf game and increase your fitness level! For this series we are using a regular iron, driver or golf cart for the on course exercises. When you incorporate these exercises while playing, you improve flexibility, decrease the risk of injury associated with your golf swing and increase focus! If you are just joining us, see weeks 1-15 to catch up!
 
Step 1: Do these simple exercises at the tee box while you await your turn to tee off.
 
Step 2: Each week you will have a new exercise. This is a progressive workout which means that every week you will have a new exercise to perform along with the exercise from weeks prior. Execute each stretch to a comfortable position and hold for 20-30 seconds.
 
Step 3: Perform the exercise upon approaching the next tee box to stay flexible and injury free for maximum results!
 
Let’s get started! 

Club Torso Rotation Stretch

Club Torso Rotation Stretch

Stand with the feet shoulder width apart, hips rotated forward and the arms extended at shoulder height holding the club grip and just above the clubhead. Slowly rotate the torso to create the stretch. Hold for 20-30 seconds. Return to the start position and repeat to the opposite side.
