Limber for longer How’s the separation in your swing?
Full range of motion gives us the ability to 'separate' the upper body and hips during the golf swing. That enables a full shoulder turn with enough rotation in the hips. This will help you hit longer golf shots. But as we age, we can lose the ability to rotate fully at all, never mind make this separation.
This exercise is a great way to improve your ability to create that separation and strengthen your upper body rotation.
Squeeze an exercise ball between your legs as you rotate slowly side to side with your arms hooked around an iron. You can also do this exercise without an exercise ball, just make sure your knees aren’t collapsing inward.
If you’re unsure whether you’re able to do this exercise, please ask a fitness professional first.
