How to Improve your Spinal Rotation

By: Roy Khoury

Most golfers I meet have a difficult time disassociating their upper and lower body during rotation so I have come up with a little flexibility program to help.  The idea is to perform 2 sets of each of these movements.  The first set is for flexibility so you will hold for 30 sec- 1 min (as tolerable), and the second set will incorporate movement (continuous repetitions from your start position to finish for 1 minute).

1)      Upper Spinal Floor Twist- Start position is on your side with your ankles, knees, hips and shoulders stacked.  End position is to open your arm without your ankles, knees, or hips moving.

2)      Hip Cross Over Stretch- Start position is on your back with your arms out to your sides.  Cross one leg over the other.  End position is to rotate your hips over without letting your shoulders leave the floor.
