FitGolf San Diego – Sidelying Rotation with Stabilization

Sidelying Rotation with Stabilization

Sidelying Rotation is one of the classics in golf fitness. A stable lower body and rotating torso is one of the most desirable features of a golfer’s body. It’s the foundation to a good “shoulder turn.” Unfortunately, I see this simple exercise done wrong more often than not. In this video I take my time explaining the proper technique to this great exercise. Take your time as well when you apply what I’m saying in your FitGolf routine. When done correctly, you can hold each repetition for just a few seconds and do multiple repetitions (10+) or take your time and hold it for just a couple long reps.

Either way, it needs to be done with the spine rotation and torso in mind, not the top shoulder joint… that just leads to pain and possible injury. Aim to feel the primary stretch in your mid-spine/torso region. The chest muscle is secondary. If you feel the shoulder joint as the primary stretch you’re doing it incorrectly… start over and modify as mentioned in the video. Remember to breathe!
