Move it Monday: Balance Exercise

Each Month I will be bringing a new topic of blog posts called; “Move it Monday’ in these blog posts I will show you exercises, stretches and warm ups that will help your golf game.

Today’s focus is on building up strength in your glutes allowing you to generate power during weight transfer.
Single Leg Dead Lift

How it’s done: Stand on left foot with dumbbells in each hand. Slowly tilt forward from the hips keeping your torso and back completely straight. Try to keep the leg supporting your weight as straight as possible, but a slight bend is ok. Repeat on right leg (dumbbells are optional).

Take Note: Its not important how far forward you can bend but keeping the back straight during this move so you don’t injure yourself.  You want to make sure that you keep your hips square to the ground.

How it benefits your swing: Builds glute and hip strength, back and torso alignment, as well as balance to help maintain proper back alignment to reduce back and glute fatigue. 2-3 Sets per leg; 4-12 Repetitions; 2-3 Times per week
