Video Golf Tip | Glute Strengthening For Posture
By Stan Sayers

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction at McGetrick Golf Academy and today I am here with Dee Tidwell, our Director of Golf Fitness and the owner of Champion Golf Fitness. What we are going to work with today is coming out of posture in swing. This is another issue that we see all the time. The player swings back and as they come into impact they want to rise up out of posture. We see this a lot and it really effects the ability to hit the golf ball accurately and hit it with strength. Today Dee is going to give us a little stretch that helps us stay in that position longer. That is right Stan, one of the key issues relating to losing that posture is glute strength. Probably 90 five percent of the people I test that come in to my clinic probably have what I call weak and flaccid glutes. They just don't work and they are flat. We want that nice little bubble butt going on and one that works well. This exercise is a hip extension, it is really simple and most anybody can do it. I am just going to lie on the ground here. I am going to go 90 degree knee bend with the feet flat on the ground, most of the pressure is going to be through your heels, arms are going to be crossed over your chest but starting off by your sides if you are a beginner, arms crossed in front of you would be more intermediate and arms out in the air in front of you would be more advanced. What I am going to do in an intermediate position here is I am just going to lift my butt up and I am going to hold this position. If you need to go ahead and touch your buttocks just to know they are working, hold it for five to 10 seconds. Do it to start five to 10 times so you have a total work set of 30 to 50 seconds and that will begin the process of strengthening those glutes so that you can much easier hold this good posture position at impact.
