Meredith demonstrates a simple exercise that will activate all the muscles needed for golf as well as strengthening the core
Today, I'm going to give you a drill called the transverse abs drill. Our transverse abs are some of the strongest, deepest muscles that we have in our abdominal wall. So, we want to make sure that those muscles are nice and strong, so that they can give a stabilization and power in the golf swing. So, I'm sure some of you are familiar with the plank and the plank is going to be key to strengthening our transverse abs. So, let me show you how to get into this position. The first thing that you want to do is get on your knees and then you're going to rest on your elbows. Just like this. You're going to be about shoulder width apart. Now, the second step is go ahead and take your feet out here and you're going to feel your abs really engaging. What you don't want is this.
You don't want your backside poking up to the sky. You want to try to come down with a flatter back and keep it nice and stabilized. See, I am already kind of shaking a little bit. I could feel this. This is great. So, the muscles that you feel during the plank are the same muscles that give us power in the golf swing. So, you're going to hold this position for about 30 seconds. Then you could come down on the ground and just rest for a minute, catch your breath, and then you're going to do it again. And you're going to repeat this three times. This is a great exercise to build power and distance in the golf swing, but not only that. The golf swing is a rotation around the spine and all of these muscles that wrap around our spine, we need to protect by strengthening. Okay? So next time, you want to build more power in your golf swing, but you also want to prevent injury. Go ahead and start planking. This will be a great drill for you
