  1. Start on all fours, hands under shoulders, knees under hips.
  2. Lift your right arm and left leg simultaneously.
  3. Return to start and repeat with the opposite arm and leg.

4. Plank Exercise for Core Strength

Lift your core strength with the plank exercise:

  1. Lie face down with arms bent, lifting your body off the ground.
  2. Hold for 15 to 20 seconds, ensuring your lower back doesn’t sag.
  3. Breathe steadily during the exercise.

5. Shoulder Blade Exercise for Active Shoulders

7. Warm-Up and Warm-Down Importance

Ensure a proper warm-up and warm-down:

  • Perform intentional warm-up drills to activate the right muscles.
  • Dedicate time to light, passive stretching after a round to aid recovery.

8. Hydration for Fluid Movement

Drink more water before playing:

  • Hydration keeps muscles and discs from dehydrating, ensuring a fluid swing and reducing injury risk.

Bonus Tip: Pelvic Alignment and the Role of Chiropractic Care

Address pelvic alignment with professional guidance:

  • Ensure your pelvis isn’t rotating, impacting spine health and swing consistency.
  • Consult with a chiropractor experienced in working with golfers for personalized advice.
