Fellow golfers…do you want more strength and control in your golf swing???
Ummm yeah! Who doesn’t?
We’ve been told for years that in order to do this, you have to work on those hips. That’s definitely true, but there is untapped potential waiting to be unleashed.
Today I’m going to show you an exercise that will supercharge your golf swing by increasing your rotational capacity in your elbows.
YES! Your elbows! They’re crucial for that golf swing!
HOW STRONG ELBOWS HELP INCREASE GOLF DRIVE
So when was the last time you thought about strengthening all the tissues around your elbow joint? And no I’m not talking about biceps curls.
On your down swing right before impact, your elbow has to create a ton of rotation. Developing strength and control in this movement will dramatically improve your golf swing, from longer drives to increased accuracy!
Today’s exercise is a sneak peek from the Strong & Mobile Golfer 30 Day program and we’re going to work on pronation of your elbow. This is the movement where your palms turn in toward the midline and down, which is the exact motion your trail arm performs to create that Whip effect upon impact.
Stick with this and in no time, your golf partners will be asking, “What’s your secret?
Then it’s up to you if you want to share it with them ;)
A rolling stick, wooden spoon, or spatula
