Golf Training Warm-up Routine For The Hips

Golf demands every motion at the hip. The first drill is an excellent hip opener for a tight groin and hip flexors, but more importantly I love the follow-up move. Golfers must own the hip hinge - learning to find and hold a good address position in a deep squat will promote this. The second clip is an excellent loaded mobility drill. In golf, the downswing should be initiated by the hips. The hips should move into abduction and external rotation (ER) to initiate trunk movement towards the target. Adding an external load, such as a band, can improve tissue length via eccentric contraction. Thus the last two clips work on adductor and hamstring mobility via movement drills!
