Golf Flexibility Exercise
Welcome to Sterling Physical Therapy, I’m Sterling Carter. Golf demands a balance of strength, skill, power, and flexibility.
Stretching will not only assist in a better golf swing with a larger range of motion, but may also prevent injury as well. Specific stretching exercises relevant to golfers should target the hamstring, lower back, and shoulders..
Be sure to add these exercises to your warm up routine:
The first exercise is called “Prone prop ups”. Get on your stomach. Then prop yourself up onto kyour elbows. Maintain this position for 1-2 minutes while breathing slowly and deeply.
The next exercise is called “Press ups”. Get back on your stomach, put your hands flat on the floor under your shoulders, like you are going to start a push up. Press your shoulders up and let your hips and low back relax. Your hips should remain in contact with the floor as you press up. Hold the end position for 1-2 seconds and return fully to the starting position. Try this for about 10 reps.
The last exercise is called a “Rotation Stretch”. Lie on your back with your knees bent. Then slowly rotate your knees to one side. Keep your shoulders on the floor, and allow your back to relax. Return to the starting position, then repeat to the other side. Let’s do this for for about 10 reps as well. Use these stretches to up your game!
