FitGolf San Diego – Hip Warm Up

Hip Warm-Up

Proper pre-golf warm ups have been a topic of conversation since the inception of golf fitness. The theories on it practically change like the seasons. Over the years we’ve learned that Static Stretches (>30 second hold) can possibly increase the chance of injury if done too close to the time of our athletic event. Researchers even started questioning the need for a warm up at all (didn’t turn out well). We eventually adopted something called Active or Dynamic Stretching.  In this video, I’ll show you a couple great active stretching exercises we often recommend to our FitGolf clients.

Hip tightness seems to be all too common in the adult golfer.  Prolonged sitting, aging and lack of exercise can really pose an issue to maintaining mobility we once had.  In this exercise, let’s start making steps towards getting it back.  Besides being an essential hip motion for an efficient golf swing, rotation of the hips is really important to keep our back and knees healthy.  When the hips become less mobile other areas of our body, especially the areas directly above and below, take too much stress.  Hip issues then become lumbar, sacroiliac (SI) and knee pain.
