Practice something about your game everyday. #CardioGolfChallenge
Every part of your body is important in the golf swing, but the hips are a major factor in generating power in your golf swing. The hip joints and surrounding muscles need to rotate in the golf swing. Where many people go wrong is that they slide their hips or stand up as they swing, mostly because we spend the day sitting and our hips are generally tighter than other muscles and joints causing these compensations.
Creating mobility in the hips will help you turn more efficiently and generate more power. Try this hip mobility exercise can be done as a warm up before play or practice. This may seem like simple exercise but it will help you increase the range of motion in your hips, challenge your balance and even help you strengthen the supporting leg.
Having flexibility in your hips are important to be able to maintain your posture and keep your spine angle throughout your swing. Tight hip flexors may cause low back muscles to weaken leading to low back pain.
Hip Flexor on Floor
- Lie on your back with legs extended.
- Bring one knee to your chest trying to keep your other leg extended straight.
- Hold position for 8 to 10 counts
- Return to the start position and repeat on opposite leg.
- Do 8 to 10 repetitions on both legs.
If you cannot straighten the leg on the floor, then you will need to work on increasing the flexibility in your hip flexors.
