Who has extra time before they play? Not many of us. But a proper warm-up can provide just what’s needed to start a round of golf off on the right foot.
The Windmill Twist is a great drill to save time while addressing both upper and lower body mobility. The stretch moves the athlete in multiple planes of motion and addresses the hamstrings, deep low back muscles on the each side of the spine (quadratus lumborum), and the T-spine (mid/upper back).
– Set-up with feet hip-distance apart.
– Squat down and hold your shins.
– Inhale as you rotate your right arm up with the shoulder and mid-back. Maintain hold with your left hand.
– At the same time, straighten your right leg only while pulling the right heel back like your sliding.
– You’ll feel the stretch in your right hamstring and right lower back as well as the upper body.
– Hold the position for multiple breaths in through the nose and out the mouth.
– Repeat on the opposite side.
