Golf Tips - Flexibility Exercises For Golf Should Be Specific To Your Swing

By Mike Pedersen

The Backswing If you are looking for a bigger backswing, you need to incorporate flexibility exercises for golf that target the muscles used specific to your swing. Doing flexibility exercises haphazardly will not get you that bigger backswing.

Isolate the phase of your swing that is not efficient and incorporate flexibility exercises that stretches those muscles. I call this golf specific targeted stretching. No wasted time. No guessing what to do.

This approach is similar to taking a golf lesson. You go to your teaching pro because you have a swing fault. You isolate where in your golf swing the swing fault might be originating and do some drills to correct it.

Flexibility exercises for golf should take the same approach. Do you have a bad lower back? If so, at what point in your golf swing does it hurt. Isolate it and take a look at what position your body is in. Is it rotated? What is it doing at that point?

Then you can do flexibility exercises that isolate that restriction specifically. You will notice a rapid improvement with this approach. You will no longer struggle with what to do to make it better. In fact, you will gain a much better understanding of how your body works within your golf swing.

Take a look at the picture I've inserted. I'm working on my backswing, but with split hands on the shaft. This gives me a better stretch in my backswing muscles, as well as working on improving the width of my golf swing.

This is an example of targeting a flexibility exercise for golf that is specific to what I'm trying to achieve in my golf swing. We all know stretching in golf is important. That's why I decided to come out with a golf stretching dvd. To show the golfer stretches that can directly increase backswing range of motion, improve core power and reduce aches and pains like the lower back.

So the next time you are hitting balls or playing, really pay attention to your limitations. Where in your golf swing are they occurring? When you isolate it, you then can implement flexibility exercises for golf that will improve that specific phase of your golf swing. *
