These are the moves for a more powerful golf swing!

This week Carolina Romero aka The Fit Golfer Girl has guest Nick Tumminello, fitness trainer in Fort Lauderdale, who is going to help teach us 3 of the correct exercises for a more powerful golf swing!  Let’s get started!

#1 Thoracic Mobility!

Lay on your side with both arms extended out in front of you on the ground.  Pull the knees up until your thighs are parallel to your arms. Start by rotating your arm rearwards and try and touch your scapula to the floor.  The operative word here is “try.”  If you find this difficult at first, take your lower arm, make a fist, and slide it under the lower knee.  This will make the exercise slightly easier and give you a little more support.  Do this exercise in a fairly quick back and forth motion. 8 to 15 reps per side.

#2 Lower Body Strength!

Get into your golf posture, and squat towards the floor bending from the waist, bending your knees and touching your hands to the floor.  As you come up, include some hip rotation pointing the hips at 90 degrees to where they started.  Then repeat to the other side. Make sure you reset your feet pointing straight forward after each rep.

#3 Core Strength!

Using a band (attached to a door or door handle) stand at 90 degrees to the band with your arms fully extended and the band held in both hands.  Rotate rearwards but stop short of rotating fully.  This maximises the tension.  Make sure you rotate the hips and shoulders simultaneously as if you were standing in a barrel.  Do 10 to 20 reps on both sides.
