I need more flexibility

5 posts in this topic

I don't think I will be able to prove until I get more flexible. I'm happy with the progress that I have made in the last two months but the toll of multiple rounds and range trips a week are getting to my back. I'm not very flexible anyway which limits my ability to make good swings and a turn. Once I start getting a little soreness my swing really starts to go downhill. Watching videos and analysis on evolvr, I can't keep my head still. My tight back is a big contributor I believe. Can anyone recommend some specific stretches to help with the lower back not only to et loose but improve flexibility over the long run? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I had the same issue and I'd highly recommend yoga as a good way to improve your flexibility. Personally, I hate traditional work-outs but find I enjoy simple yoga routines on the days I don't go to the driving range or play. If your cable provider has an "on demand" type feature then check out their "fitness" sections, they usually carry a handful of yoga sessions you can do at home. A couple of the streaming TV providers (ie. amaozon and netflix) may also carry them.

Check out these two books.  They both contain a lot of stretches and exercises to improve your flexibility for the golf swing.  The second one also is available in a DVD (3rd item).  Many of the exercises are similar to the one my physical therapist gave me after my surgeries to get my flexibility and strength back.

Thanks guys. I will check into the options presented. I'm in good health overall and only 33, but have had issues with extremely tight hamstrings since childhood. That still holds true today but I think it is impacting my lower back as well.
