Golf posture and your set up position is one of the first things that any good golf professionals would look at when assessing your golf swing. They know that when you are in good posture, your potential to hit straighter and longer golf shots is much improved. However, maintaining a good set up is often times not a simple task. The first step in developing a golf conditioning program is implementing exercises to ensure a good golf posture.
The most common postural fault in the set up position is the C-posture.
The C-posture is seen when your shoulders and upper back are hunched forward when addressing the ball. There can be many causes to this position but it is generally the result of a lack of mobility in the upper back (thoracic spine), tightness through the chest and shoulders, and weak or inhibited muscles.
In our 12 week course http://www.noregretspt.com.au/index.php/group-programs/golf-performance we have over 20 different assessments and corrections for this posture to identify exactly where the problem lies.
In this video we show you some of the tests we use and one fantastic test to determine exactly how long you need to hold tension in weak muscles to develop incredible endurance which in turn will provide your golf game CONSISTENCY.
In terms of your golf swing the problem with C-posture is that it makes it difficult for you to rotate the shoulders fully, as well as maintain correct positions during the swing. A C-posture will never allow you to get the distance in you shots that you really desire.
If you failed these tests, or your golf professional has told you to work on your posture, here are two ex-ercises you can use now to start improving your golf swing.
The first is called the Prone Cobra. The Prone Cobra is excellent for conditioning the postural muscles and re-establishing optimal postural alignment.
1. Lie down on your stomach with your arms by your side
2. Lift your torso while simultaneously squeezing your shoulder blades together and externally rotating your arms. When you have reached the ideal position your hands should be facing away from your body, your head and neck should be neutral and your feet still on the ground
3. Hold this position for 10 seconds and do at least 18 reps to get maximum benefit
The second is the Thoracic Spine Foam Roller Mobilization
1. Lie on the ground with a 4′ Foam Roller under your back just below the shoulder blades
2. Cradle your neck gently with your hands but don’t hold your head
3. Slowly breathe out and drop backward over roller toward the floor as far as you can comfortably go and hold this position for 3-5 seconds.
4. Breathe in and come back to start position
5. Repeat 3-5 times
By using simple exercises like this and also adopting the test we show you in this video you will go a long way to improving your game for all 18 holes!
