Hip Flexor Stretch with golf club

September 22, 2020 06:29 AM

Our Weekly Golf Fitness Tip is one that you should make part of your routine before, during, and after your round. This exercise stretches the muscles in the front of the hip, which can become tight when sitting in a cart over the course of a round of golf.

When you’re heading down the final few holes in your weekend foursome, the last thing you want is to tighten up. By stretching your hip flexor, you’ll enable full range of motion in your backswing. Using nothing but a club to help keep your balance, the Hip Flexor stretch is one of the best ways to stay mobile throughout your round.

Key Takeaways:

  • The muscles in the front of the hip can become tight when sitting in the cart.
  • Flexible hip flexor muscles are necessary for full range of motion in the backswing.
  • This stretch is a great short-term solution.
  • Permanent gains in mobility require additional strength training.
