Band exercises for more distance in your golf swing!

Band exercises are simple yet very effective exercises to do both at home or in the gym.  Here are a few to get you the distance you are looking for in your golf swing.

Pallof Press.  Using an anchored band, walk it out to provide enough resistance.  Start with your arms on your chest and extend them out until you feel your abs working hard to keep you in place.

Tight Turns.  In this exercise, our will begin in the same position as the Pallof Press but you will be rotating the arms away from the anchor point.  Do a strong turn away and a slow return.

Plank with Row.  This will help your core strength, stability and anti-rotation skills. Make sure the hips stay stable at all times. As with all these exercises, repeat on the other side.

Glute Bridges & Clams.  Place a mini-band over your thighs or knees and while laying on your side, you are going to start separating your knees away from each other while maintaining the lower knee pressed against the ground.

Part 2 of Bridges & Clams.  Lay on your back with your knees bent.  While pushing through your heels, elevate your hips and contract your glutes at the top.  Make sure you are not allowing the mini-band to bring your knees together.

Pivot and Stick it.  Hold the band with your left hand.  Turn around to wrap the band around your waist. From this position, you are going to focus on fighting the resistance of the band while turning your hips and transferring your weight to the outside leg.  Make sure you are initiating the movement with your hips.
