30 Drills and Golf-Fitness Exercises to Do Before the End of Summer

1. Modified PiYo Flip-

This exercise is inspired by fitness expert Charlene Johnson who created a program called PiYo.

Mobility in your upper and low back is important to be able to create a wide swing arc and full balanced finish.  If you lack flexibility around your spine then you will inevitability make compensations in your swing leading to faults and injuries.

This exercises can help you increase flexibility in your upper and lower back and help build strength for a wider swing arc and balanced finish.
