Simple golf exercise: Lateral Lunge

April 06, 2020 10:51 AM

The lateral lunge is a great mobility exercise that will increase your range of motion in the lateral plane. For golf, this is essential for the weight shifting and rotational movement that occurs during the swing. Many people neglect working on the lateral plane in favor of front-to-back movements, so give this a shot if you fall into that category because improving your side-to-side motion could help your golf swing in a big way.

Remember to begin with small movements and gradually work your way up. It’s also important to drop your buttocks behind you (as seen in the video) to maintain a neutral spine and ensure you’re keeping good posture throughout the exercise.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lateral lunges increase your range of motion from side to side
  • Start with small movements and gradually work your way up
  • Be sure to drop your buttocks behind you to maintain a neutral spine
