We Got Your (Lower) Back: Tips on improving your Golf Swing!

In Sports on 06/14/2011 at 5:28 pm

 

Tuesday’s golf exercise is about strengthening the back, which in many ways is the foundation to a proper golf swing. If your back is in pain you simply won’t be able to play your best, if you’re even able to pick up a club. Here is a simple but effective exercise to really target those often strained lower back muscles.

Back – Improve posture, ease of rotation and power through acceleration.

Exercise – Back Extensions

  • Lie on your stomach, facedown, arms straight out in front of you, palms down, and legs straight out behind you.
  • Pull your abs in, as if you’re trying to create a small space between your stomach and the floor.
  • Lift your left arm and right leg about one inch off the floor, and stretch out as much as you can.
  • Hold this position for five slow counts and then lower your arm and leg back down.
  • Repeat the same move with your right arm and left leg.
  • Continue alternating sides until you complete the set.

Tune in tomorrow for our lower body exercises.
