In this segment, let’s create more mobility in your hip region for more torque and better postures!
More Pars Fitness Coach Karen Palacios-Jansen shows you a an effective exercise to strengthen your muscles to keep your angles. If you lack lack mobility and strength in your hips and pelvis, then the force of the golf swing will pull your torso up out of its posture at the moment of impact. This exercise will help you increase your ability to maintain proper lower back and pelvic angles. Having hip mobilization allows your body to rotate with more efficiency and power!
Key benefits of this move:Improves hip mobility
Improves rotational mobility
Strengthens glutes and hamstrings
Your goal is a repetition of 8-10 times.
The Set Up & Execution
• Sit on an exercise ball, then roll down so that you are squatting but leaning on it.
• Using your hips and legs, push your back up the ball so that your torso forms a straight line.
• Squat down again to the start position.
• Squeeze your glutes at the top of the the move.
Squeeze your glutes hard at the top for maximum benefit.
Do not over extend at the top without squeezing your glutes, as this may place pressure in your lower back.
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Set up with shoulder-width stance.
• Using a golf club, raise the club above your head, extending your arms straight.
• Bend your arms at the elbows and drop the club behind your head, squeezing your shoulder blades at the bottom of the move.
• Perform in front of a mirror to ensure you have spot-on form.
