Stretches to improve flexibility

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I had a search to see if there was a thread focused on improving flexibility but couldn't find specifically what i was looking for.

 

We all know that improving flexibility is a very good thing for any golfer and that it can increase swing speed. I've read in a lot of threads about improving flexibility but none of them really focused on exactly how to go about doing so. I currently hold static stretches before bed every night but I'm not sure which stretches to do so if people with more knowledge than i in this area could recommend stretches for me and other golfers as well that would be great. Ideally attach an explanatory picture/video with each suggestion.

 

Currently i do the following:

@FooFader ,

 

I recommend the following books:

 

 Roger Fredericks Secrets of Golf Instruction & Flexibility: Your Guide to Mastering Golf s True Fundamentals 

 

His stretching section is excellent.  Golf instruction section is average.

 

 Fix Your Body, Fix Your Swing: The Revolutionary Biomechanics Workout Program Used by Tour Pros 

 

by Joey D.  This has exercises that help improve flexibility and well as strength.

Thank you very much, i shall check those out. I found a flexibilty screening program online the other day, it was called TPI and whilst it's copyrighted there are multiple examples of the 12 exercises involved on YouTube. I would recommend that to anyone to assess where their flexibilty could be lacking. I found that i have extremely tight lats so i'll have a look later at stretches for that and @boogielicious i shall see if i can find those books on eBay goig cheap or amazon otherwise.
