Exercises to improve stability and balance

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

Does anyone have any good exercises to help with balance and stability?

 

When I finish my swing, I don't always feel on balance.  When I see swings like Rory's and Adam's and their finishing positions it amazes me....obviously they've been swinging a club for a long time, but would like to work on this.

 

Cheers

I've heard of people standing on 2x4s and making swings. They also sell these little balance ball thingies that you can stand on while swinging.

Goblet squats for ankle stability and mobility (obviously good for other muscles as well). I do them with kettlebells.

Thanks guys! - will give both of these a go.

 

Don't have kettlebells but have dumbbells

Try swinging on one foot ... you don't need to hit a ball. Swing the club in the air ... about a half swing. Then go to the other foot.

Works just as well with a dumbbell, watch how the guy does it in the video. At the bottom of the squat the elbows are between the knees.

Did some of these squats last night. My legs were on fire. Used a 30lb dumbbell. 5 sets of 20 reps.

 

Legs were jelly afterwards...I like this exercise a lot

Nice, that's a good workout. You'll be feeling it for the next couple days.

I usually feel it in the smaller muscles of the hip, the abductors and adductors.
