Improve Your Golf Swing with These 3 Mobility Exercises

Aug 17, 2023

Improve your mobility, flexibility – and your game!

A good golf swing requires good mobility, but as we age, our ability to move easily decreases. That’s why mobility warm-up exercises should be a part of every game.

Here are three mobility exercises to warm up your shoulders, spine, and hips. Do 8-10 repetitions 3-5x per week, even when it’s not golf season!

1️⃣ Overhead Shoulder Mobility: Using a stick, dowel, or golf club, hold it with both hands, palms facing up. Raise the stick overhead, keeping your arms straight. Lower the stick and repeat.

2️⃣ Side Bends to Rotation: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a golf club behind your neck with both hands. Side bend to one side, then the other, then straighten and rotate your torso to one side then the other.

3️⃣ Hip Flexor Stretch: Using the stick or golf club for support, step back with one foot and raise the opposite arm. Push your hips forward until you feel a stretch in the hip flexor of the foward foot. Hold for 20-30 seconds, then switch sides.

These exercises will help you improve your mobility and flexibility, which will lead to a better golf swing. Incorporate them into your warm-up routine to see the benefits.
