Let’s strengthen your core, the engine of your golf swing!
More Pars Fitness Coach Karen Palacios-Jansen shows you an effective core strengthener that generates more clubhead speed.
Key benefits of this move:Strengthens your entire core
Strengthens your buttocks as you perform on the ball
Improves rotational mobility for better backswings
Your goal is a repetition of 8-10 times.
The Set Up & Execution
• Roll down on an exercise ball so that just your shoulders are on the ball.
• Extend your hips, so that your thighs and torso are parallel to the ground.
• Reach your arms up with your palms facing each other.
• Slowly rotate the upper body to one side while keeping your lower body stable.
• Repeat on the opposite side. Repeat the motion 8 to 10 times.
• As you get stronger, add a light medicine ball or hand weight to the mix.
Engage your core and glutes; keep them engaged through the move.
Do not allow your table to fall. To maintain your table, ensure that you are engaging your core and squeezing the glutes. An engaged core allows the right muscles to recruit and protect your spine.
So let’s make sure you get green checks on these key points:
• Set up with the shoulders on a ball, glutes, and core engaged.
• Maintain a stable lower body as your twist.
• Keep your hips facing the ceiling for more advanced move.
• Add a weight as you get stronger.
