More Pars Fitness Coach Karen Palacios-Jansen shows you a simple exercise to groove your torque. During your swing, the power is generated from the torque that you create between the upper and lower body.
Fault » Lack of Turn
Fix » Practice Making a Better Turn
Fault: If your backswing is short or your turn in restricted, then you need to practice making a better turn.
Fix: Increasing flexibility and strengthening the core and shoulder stabilizers, simultaneously.
Perform 8 to 10 repetitions on each side
The Set Up & Execution
• Stand in a shoulder-width stance holding a golf club parallel to the ground with your arms extended away from your chest.
• Stabilize your lower body as you rotate your upper body independently from your lower body.
• Turn your torso as far as you can in one direction, then slowly repeat toward the opposite direction.
• After you have loaded your body weight into your right foot, you immediately shift your lower body back to the left as your upper body momentarily stays put.
As you do this exercise, keep your feet grounded with feet pressure points facing inward, as you would in your golf posture.
