How to use a foam roller to create a more fluid swing

August 10, 2020 01:36 PM

Good mobility in your back is essential for a powerful golf swing, and one that’s safe on your body for years to come. This centers around the ability to rotate through the mid and upper back so loads on the lower back are minimized, because twisting the lower back at high speeds is a recipe for disaster. So it’s incredibly important to mobilize your thoracic spine (upper back) for a fluid swing that doesn’t cause pain.

Follow the instructions from Bill in the video above to learn how this simple routine with a foam roller can help mobilize your entire back and positively impact your golf game.

Key Takeaways:

  • A lack of thoracic spine mobility causes a compensation of over-rotation through the lower back, leading to back pain and a swing that raises your risk for injuries
  • A quick foam rolling session right before playing can increase mobility in this area
