exibility Stretches

Flexibility Stretches

As we all know, stretching before we play a round or even before hitting some balls on the range is key to help us get more flexibility and better rotation. Try the exercises below before you go out next time and see if you feel the difference.

Rotation lunge

Put your hands on either side of a golf club and then put the golf club on the back of your shoulders. Take a big step into the lunge position. Turn your body in the direction of your extended knee. Hold the stretch for two counts. Release and repeat.

Hamstring stretch

Lie flat on your back with your legs straight out. Lift one leg into the air and hold the back of your thigh with your hands. Pull your leg towards you. The other leg should be flat on the ground. Hold the stretch and then release it. Repeat, alternating legs.

Reaching down stretch

This exercise focuses on your triceps. Grasp your hands together. Reach them behind your head and try to stretch them down your back. Your elbows should be pointed up. Hold the position then release and repeat.
