This hip mobility exercise will help you loosen up the joints and muscles in the hips. The more mobility you have, the easier it will be to sequence your weight shift and deliver power to the ball. This can be done as a warm up or part of a workout routine.
You know when you’re on the golf course and they have roped off areas because of water or other hazards. Those little ropes you have to step over can really catch you out. Nothing’s more annoying or embarrassing than catching your foot and tripping over those ropes
This great hip rotators exercise is going to really help you warm up those muscles and gain good hip mobility which will really help your golf swing and general flexibility.
How to Do the Hip Rotators Exercise
- Use your golf club (grip down) for balance
- Lift your knee as high as you can and step over the imaginary rope
This is a really great exercise for your hip flexor, for your glute muscle, and for your internal and external hip rotators so be sure to lift that leg up as high as you can.
It is also a good balance exercise so do eight to ten repetitions on each side and you will be all warmed up and you’re not going to trip over those stupid little ropes on the golf course.
