Our host is Carolina Romero this week, aka The Fit Golfer Girl, a Fitness Trainer specializing in golf-specific exercises to help make you a stronger, fitter, and more flexible golfer.  Mike Midgette, PGA Professional, join her.  Carolina and Mike focus on a move we all want to either avoid or get rid of.  Coming Over the Top!  By following along with Carolina, you will improve your understanding of how the body needs to move in the golf swing to have No More Coming Over the Top in Your Golf Swing!  As Carolina always says, “Let’s get started!”

Glute Foam Roll:

Sit on a Foam Roller slightly on your left hip.  Cross your left leg over your right thigh and move back and forth over the glutes, working on any tight or tender spots. Repeat on the other side.


Get on your hands and knees and start arching your back in both directions.  Don’t force the movement.  Instead, focus on a fluid transition.

Erector Stretch:

While sitting with your legs extended, cross your right leg over your left, extend your left arm and place it outside your right knee.  Gently push against the knee, trying to turn your body away from your right leg as far as possible. Hold for about 30 seconds.  Repeat on the other side. 

Single-Leg Glute Bridge:

Lay on your back with both heels flat on the floor.  Raise your left leg off the ground and push up with your right.  Maintain even hips through the move.  Do 20 reps 2 times on both sides.

Disassociation Drills.

Hip Twister:

Get into your golf stance with your hands on your chest.  While keeping your upper body as stable as possible, begin rotating your hips from side to side.  Do this exercise in front of a mirror to make sure the upper body is not moving. 

Pallof Hold Hip Turn:

A Band attached to a door or wall anchor stands at 90 degrees to the attachment point.  Extend your arms in front of you.  From this position, begin rotating your hip while keeping your upper body as stable as possible.  Keep your core engaged.  Repeat on the other side.
