This week Carolina Romero, aka The Fit Golfer Girl, is going to demonstrate some great core exercises that will make your golf swing not only more powerful but also more consistent.  Let’s get started!

3 Point Plank:

Get yourself into a regular plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders and hold for at least 30 seconds. From here, you will elevate one of your hands. and hold for a second or two. Then elevate one of your legs and hold for a second or two. Ensure that your hips are not rotating and that you are maintaining a stable body throughout the exercise.

Pull Through Planks:

Get into a regular plank position.  Grab a weight and pull it through with one arm through to the other side.  Repeat by pulling the weight through again back to the starting position.  This is one rep. Do as many reps as you feel comfortable doing.

Side Planks:

This is one of the best exercises for golfers, period.  Lay on your side, pull your knees up, place your elbow directly under your shoulder, and elevate your hip. Make sure your butt is not sticking out, and there is a straight line between your head and your knees.

Once you feel comfortable with this exercise, you can straighten your legs and elevate your hips, this time making sure there is a straight line between your head and your ankles.

More Variations.

Alternating Side Planks:

Once you have mastered the side planks and alternate from side to side without putting your knees down, do as many reps as you feel comfortable doing.

Swiss Ball Plank:

Get into a regular plank position with your forearms on top of the ball. Make sure you maintain a straight line through your body and do not slump or arch your back.

Plank Rollouts: 

once you feel comfortable enough, start rolling the ball in and out.  The purpose here is to make sure that your lower back is nice and stable. Do as many reps as you feel comfortable doing.
