Boost Your Rotational Strength For A Stronger Golf Swing

By Christopher Smith

Every golf player dreams of a fluid, unhindered golf swing. So why do so few of us actually realize it?

The root cause is normally a weak core and poor posture.

You should aim for a healthy 60-degree rotation in your trunk if you want to achieve a free, smooth golf swing. Here are two simple exercises that you can perform to improve trunk rotation:

1. Improve Rotational Flexibility

Sit straight on a stool with your feet firmly planted on the ground. Hold your golf club across your shoulders. Turn around clockwise as far as you could, until you feel a good stretch. Then turn around counter-clockwise as far as you could. You might notice a difference in your turning ability on each side.

Work on your less flexible side to fix the imbalance. Having one side weaker than the other could affect your ‘feel’ for the game!

A lot of people perform this stretch standing, which is less effective as it permits movement at the knee and foot. Movement at these joints can compromise trunk rotation.

2. Improve Rotational Strength

Fix a cable with handle (or an exercise tube) to a low pulley. Don’t set the weight too high. It is always easier to begin low and then slowly raise your limits as you get familiar with the moves.

Stand with your right side to the cable, feet are shoulder width apart. Grasp the cable handle with both your hands while standing erect. Pull the cable towards your left shoulder, winding up with your arms creating a 45-degree angle to your neck. Keep only a small bend in your elbows. Perform four reps and repeat with the other side.

Injuries as well as muscle imbalances often result from poor stability, which is the primary cause for lack of coordination between your upper body and lower body. The abs and hips are your body’s “transmission system” transferring power from the bigger and stronger muscles of the lower body to the upper body, which guides as well as controls your golf swing.

3. Stabilize your core for much better rotation

Stand straight with your arms crossed at shoulder level and weight equally distributed on both legs.

Shift your weight to the left foot, and move your right foot one step away from your left foot. Make certain your right foot is solidly positioned on the floor. Rotate your upper body the same direction as the supporting leg.

Now shift your weight to the right foot while twisting your upper body to the same side. Don’t lean forwards or backwards while you bend your knee. Your body needs to remain with good posture while maintaining a tight stomach and neutral back position.

Continue repeating this exercise so you can get a feel for what it is like to produce stability in your midsection while rotating from a more solid body position.

Finally- do not expect an immediate miracle on the golf course. Perform these exercises regularly and keep adding new and challenging routines to work on your trunk flexibility, stability and strength!
