This is an easy exercise to do, It helps to bring the power house of the golf swing (your hips and pelvis) through freely when striking the ball.
Why would I do this
It improves the ability to rotate torso independently from the pelvis.
What it does
It Increases the ability to rotate hips and pelvis through impact without engaging the upper body in the motion of the swing.
How to do it
Stand with a 6 iron posture with the arms across the chest. Turn chest to the right without moving the pelvis. Pause. Turn your chest to the left without moving the pelvis. Begin this slowly at first. As you master the separation you may begin to increase the speed of motion. Keep the hips and pelvis as stable as you can throughout this exercise.
What to watch out for
Watch your form, although it's not the end of the world if your pelvis moves a little, the object here though is to eventually do this correctly to get the best result, video yourself if you have to or get someone to watch that pelvis so it stays as still as possible.
Days 3 per week Reps 5 X both ways Sets 3 with 1 min rest between or for 3 minutes
