Proper Stretching and Warm-Up Techniques for Golfers.
4. Standing Thoracic Rotation
Get into an address position, put your right hand behind your head and your left hand on the inside of your left knee. Rotate your trunk to the right while holding your lower body steady.
If doing this stretch prior to playing golf hold 3-5 seconds and repeat 5-10 times.
If doing this stretch at home hold 20-30 seconds and repeat 2-3 times.
Do the opposite rotation by switching your hands placement and repeat.
5. Trunk Rotation
Place club behind shoulders as shown and then slowly rotate your trunk back and forth through the normal range of motion of the golf swing.
Hold 2-3 seconds at either end of the motion and avoid moving beyond a comfortable stretch feeling. Repeat 5-10 times in both directions
Place the club behind shoulders while grabbing onto the club with both hands. Try to bring the club as far down the middle of the back as possible and hold for 20-30 seconds and repeat 1-3 times.
