The weather is getting warmer, which means Golf season is here! Hip mobility is extremely important for your golf swing. Here are three of our favorite stretches to get your hips loosened up!
- Piriformis stretch: place one leg over top of the other. Grab your bottom leg and hold. If you are having a hard time holding your leg, try wrapping a towel around your leg to extend your arm length.
- Internal hip rotation stretch: set up is the same as number 1. This time, drop your top leg across your body. Use your other leg to apply pressure downwards.
- Pigeon pose: 1 leg in front, keep your knee at a 90 degree angle. Your other leg rotates backwards until it is straight behind you. If this is too hard, keep both knees at 90 degrees, forming an S shape around your body. To add a deeper stretch, come down to your elbows.
*As always, hold stretches for at least 30 seconds!
