This is a modified Pilates exercise. I have taken simple stretches and combined them with Pilates' breathing to target muscles used in the golf swing. Although Pilates have been in the mainstream of general fitness for a few years now, golfers are just starting to consider this discipline to help them improve their golf games. Pilates help improve flexibility, concentration and body control. Breathing is an integral part of Pilates, so you will want to concentrate on your breathing as you do all the exercises. These exercises are more dynamic than static stretching because you will be breathing more deeply.
This stretch helps elongate and align joints and muscles.
Stand is a shoulder width stance.
Hold a club above your head as shown and extend your arms and torso up as you lean to one side.
Hold position as you exhale and inhale for 8 to 10 counts.
Repeat on the opposite side.
Repeat for 8 to 10 repetitions.
