Tight Hamstrings? Not Anymore!

Tight Hamstrings mean less flexibility and mobility and have a direct correlation to a tight lower back. Tight hamstrings will definitely affect your golf game and could even cause some back "issues".

The following video features Coach Joey D performing a "Seated Stretch" movement pattern that will not only help to get those hamstring muscles stretched, but also help to develop a nice strong flat back which is critical to a good golf posture and free rotation around your spine. 

This exercise requires an 8 pound medicine ball or PowerBall and a stability or Balance Ball. The balance ball will also help to strengthen the small stabilizing muscles in your lower body.
Add this exercise to your current routine or use this one to start your golf fitness program.  It's easy and very very effective.

I've always said, Fitness is impossible without flexibility! Most injuries occur from tight, underused muscles. Would you agree?
