2-minute Total Body Spinal Rotators
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.
2-minute Thoracic Spine Stretch
If you cannot take your thoracic spine through full range of motion, you will end up over using your shoulder muscles and this may cause injury. You will tend to lift the club up to the top instead of making a complete turn to finish your backswing, leading to power leaks and swing faults.
