Prisoner Squats are a variation on the standard squat that is particularly effective for golf. The golf swing can begin to break down when we default into bad posture, such as letting your shoulders roll forward at your address position.
Rebooting your body between holes can have a big impact on your game—especially as you fatigue. In addition to activating the glutes and getting all the same benefits of a traditional squat, the Prisoner Squat also works to open up the chest and encourage a better setup position.
Increase mobility in the shoulders and upper back and wake up your hips right on the course with this simple exercise. This is a fundamental exercise that should be incorporated into your pre-round routine to help you play your best.
