Pre-round golf stretch: Upper back extension

August 18, 2020 12:10 PM

Upper back mobility and shoulder mobility are key components of a great golf swing. Improving your mobility in these areas also has the added benefit of preventing over-rotation in your lower back (something that commonly causes pain for golfers).

In this simple exercise, you’ll learn an easy way to work on your upper back and shoulder mobility without the use of equipment.

Key Takeaways:

  • Increasing mobility in the upper back increases range of motion in your swing
  • Helps prevent over-rotation through the low back
  • Be sure to be activating your upper back and shoulders, not your lower back during this exercise
