The 7 Exercise Warm up All Golfers Should Be Doing Every Day
The top golfers in the world are able to repeat their swing with ease.
Over and over and over again.
They all have it in common.
Looking back further…
All were able to repeat it again and again.
The ability to repeat their swing allowed them to unlock the power in their game.
When you have consistency you no longer have to worry about hitting the ball straight.
Instead, you can worry about how far you are driving it.
So what’s the secret?
It’s the ability to consistently put your body in a position to repeat it.
What all of the guys above had in common was the freedom of movement through their ankles, hips, and thoracic spine.
In fitness lingo we refer to this as mobility.
Without the mobility in these vital areas then your body isn’t able to get into the same position over and over.
It will fight you to be comfortable and to stay with the status quo.
You may be able to get there once, twice or a few times each round just from sheer concentration.
To really commit it to memory though you need to stop fighting with your body and instead give it the freedom to move as it should.
The following 7 golf specific exercises attack each of the areas where your body needs mobility.
The exercises don’t stop there though. They also provide stability through your hips and get your glutes firing.
For those that don’t know already your glutes are the most important muscle in your golf swing. They need to be ready to go before you take your first swing.
