Move It Monday: Medicine Ball Ball Swing Toss

How it’s done: Stand in your regular golf stance, knees slightly bent, leaning forward through hips with back straight, holding a medicine ball in place of a golf club.  Be sure to get your butt out on this one.  Swing medicine ball as you would your club (arm and hand motions will be different), and when your arms are at a 45° down angle, release the medicine ball, throwing it against a wall. Make sure all the rotating is done with your upper back we do not want to over rotate the lower back and create stress on back.  This should be a quick motion just like a normal golf swing. Do exercise on both sides of the body (switch leading hands).

How it benefits your golf swing: Builds strength through actual swing motion focusing on all muscles involved to help add extra distance to hit without losing control.  It also helps with your range of motion on the follow through.

Program: 3 Sets per side; 5-12 Repetitions: 2-3 Times per week
