A month ago, when I talked about the High Lob Shot off Hard-Pan. This is not for the faint-hearted!  You have to be aggressive with this shot and totally commit to the outcome.  How do you achieve that?  By practicing this shot repeatedly, you gain the confidence to know that this shot is not as difficult as it looks!

This week Carolina Romero, aka The Fit Golfer Girl, will show you how to do a great in-home golf workout without any equipment.  Let’s get started!

Glute Bridge: Lay on your back with your knees bent.  Push through your heels to elevate your hips.  Squeeze your glutes at the top, hold for a moment and relax. Repeat for about 10 reps.

Bird Dog: Get on your hands and knees and begin by elevating your opposite arm and leg.  Hold the position at the top for about 5 seconds and repeat on the other side.  10 reps.

Plank with Shoulder Tap: Find an elevated surface and get into a plank position.  While maintaining your abs and glutes engaged, tap your opposite shoulder making sure that your hips are completely stable and not moving from side to side. 

Box Squats: Begin by sitting on a chair with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing straight forward. While pushing through your heels, come up to a standing position, squeeze your glutes at the top, and slowly bring yourself back down to a sitting position.

Reach Backs: While on all fours and one of your hands behind your head, start turning your body in the same direction (as your raised arm)

Hip Twisters: While maintaining your upper body completely still, rotate your hips.  Make sure you are rotating your hips and not just moving them from side to side.

Advanced Versions.

Glute Bridge – Single Leg.  If you want a more challenging variation, Push up through the hips and make sure you are maintaining your hips even and stable. Repeat for about 10 reps.

Bird Dog Plank: If you want a more challenging variation.  Get into a plank position and elevate your opposite arm and leg. Hold the position for about 5 seconds and repeat on the other side.

Plank with Shoulder Tap Advanced: If you want a more challenging version, do the shoulder taps while maintaining a plank on the floor.

Single-Leg Box Squat: Make sure you are putting all the weight on the working leg’s heel.  Ensure that your knee is staying in line with your toe.
