Your ability to rotate your shoulders, torso and hips around your spine determines how much clubhead speed you create in your golf swing. Spinal mobility decreases with age. Lack of spinal mobility is associated with poor posture and restricts your shoulder and torso turn in the golf swing.
Adding rotational exercises into your daily routine can facilitate a more effective turn and help you increase clubhead speed for more distance.
Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Extend your arms straight out to the side as shown.
Slowly lower your legs to one side, trying to touch the ground with your bottom knee and hold position for 8 to 10 counts.
Try to keep both shoulders flat on the floor. Don't let your shoulders raise off the ground.
Return to the start position and repeat on the opposite side.
Alternate rotating bent legs from side to side for 8 to 10 repetitions on both sides.
