1-minute Reverse Lunge with Twist
Individual Flexibility Exercises • 1m 5s
Benefits of the lunge exercise include developing strength and firmness in your lower body. The twisting part of the exercise teaches you to rotate over the resistance of your lower body just like what you need to do in the golf swing.
In Cardiogolf, we do a variety of lunges in different planes of motion. The reverse lunge works the muscles differently than the forward and side lunge. All are good to help increase strength and mobility in lower lower body.
Hold an exercise ball with both hands and extend your arms.

As you lunge backwards, simultaneously rotate your torso to the right, keeping your arms parallel to the ground, hold position for a moment.
Return to the start position and repeat on the opposite leg.
Do 8 to 10 repetitions on each leg.
