Perform 8-10 repetitions on each arm.
The Set Up & Execution
• Stand in your golf posture with arms extended out in front of you.
• Slowly bend one arm so that you are squeezing your shoulder blade as you rotate your torso slightly.
• Drop your arm down to the start position and repeat on the opposite arm.
• Repeat motion 8 to 10 times on each arm.
• To make it more challenging, increase the weight.
Focus on keeping your head and eyes quiet, looking at the ground through the move. As you send your elbows back, keep them on the same plane. Do not allow your shoulder to rise or elbow to flair out at any point.
Watch out for over rotation of the hips and shoulders.
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Begin in the shoulder-width golf posture.
• Have weights in hand and extended down to start.
• Maintain a stable lower body.
• Send elbows back, keeping them close to your side as you slightly rotate.
