If you have flexible hips and you utilise them efficiently during your golf swing theres no doubt you will hit the ball a long way. The problem is that most people do not have flexible hips. This could be something to do with hours of sitting each day. But theres always something that can be done, and heres a good place to start.
Here’s some exercises to help improve your hip mobility/flexibility ready for golf:
- Hip circles from all fours and/or standing
- Multidirectional lunges (with reaches)
- Squat mobility
- Spiderman Lunges
I think hip mobility is really important for all sorts of people and especially golfers. Not only to help hit the ball farther but also reduce injury risk.
Try 1-2 sets of 10 reps for each of the above exercises and it shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes.
