Simple Golf Hip Turn Stretch For Maximum Rotation
Watch This Video, And Do This Hip Rotation Stretch Daily To Improve Your Golf Swing Power
I shot this golf stretch video to show you an effective hip rotation stretch you can do to increase the speed of your hip turn in your golf swing. This is a huge power generator, and most of the golfers over the age of 50 have diminished rotational flexibility in their hip joints.
As with all golf stretching exercises do them exactly as I show you, but make sure to ease into them, as to not pull or strain that muscle.
For those of you who have had a hip replacement, this is still a very good stretch for you. With a little consistency, even with a replaced hip, you’ll see dramatic improvement in your ability to rotate your hips through impact resulting in more power and distance.
Golf Hip Rotation Instructions
- In a standing position, get your feet much wider than shoulder width apart.
- Rotate left foot and hip outward.
- Do a side lunge feeling a stretch in your right hip joint.
- Hold for 10 seconds.
- Repeat the same for the other leg.
This stretch for your hip joints can be done daily in under ONE minute! There is no longer an excuse for lack of time, when you can do effective golf stretches like this one in the privacy and convenience of your home.
Senior Tour Golfers Hip Rotation Through Impact
I wanted to give you a visual example of how much the hips turn, or rotate through impact. I picked senior tour player Freddie Couples, who… even plagued with a bad back, is my example. I did not want to show you the young guns, as that is not a good comparison for the older golfers out there.
Look at the difference in his hips from address to impact. They have rotated open significantly, and that is one reason for his power even in his 50’s.
Most amateur golfers over 50 cannot physically achieve this unless they do golf stretches like the one in the video. So there is hope for you, as you get older, as long as you slow the aging process with golf training exercises like this one.
