2-minute Abdominal Stretch on Ball
Individual Flexibility Exercises • 1m 26s
If you have been playing and practicing a lot lately, then your shoulder, abdominal and low back muscles may may be tight. This stretch will open up your back and stretch your abdominals to counteract the hunched over position from swinging a golf club.
Sit on a ball and slowly roll down to drop your head off the ball and extend your arms and legs so that your back in arched over the ball.
Balance yourself as you stretch your abdominal and low back muscles.
Hold stretch for 8 to 10 counts.
Do 8 to 10 repetitions.
Stop immediately if you feel dizzy. If you do not feel comfortable doing this stretch on a ball, simply lie on the ground and stretch your arms over your head and extend your legs out straight.
