Two Exercises To Increase Your Shoulder Turn

A good shoulder turn into your backswing & follow through are essential in having a powerful swing. Often times golfers tend to twist from the low back (lumbar spine) rather than the upper back (thoracic spine)during the swing. The low back was not designed to rotate to the degree it often does during the golf swing. This can lead to extra stress and ultimately injury. The upper back on the other hand is actually designed to rotate much better and to a greater degree.

With all the bad posture positions we put ourselves in, like sitting at a desk or driving a car, we tend to get stiff over time. This stiffness in the upper back limits our rotation/shoulder turn during the golf swing.

We are always looking for ways to increase our flexibility, so try these 2 exercises
today to help increase that shoulder turn.
Good Luck!
