Thoracic Mobility Lumbar Stability Series Part 3: Hip Stability

Coach is back for the final part of his thoracic mobility lumbar stability series. For these routines, you’ll need a pole (try a broomstick), dumb bell and resistance band. Coach recommends trying these movements barefoot.

For the first routine, line the pole from the top of your head to the back of your butt. Bend over into a single leg balance and extend your back foot. Keeping everything long and square, hold this position for at least 30 seconds or until you start to lose your balance and feel fatigued.

When you feel confident you’ve mastered that movement, move into the rowing component with a weight. In the same position, do 10 to 15 row repetitions, moving the scapula towards the spine while maintaining stable hips. Be sure to stay aligned!

The last routine is a step out, bringing it all together with a resistance band. Grab the resistance band with your outside hand, keep your hip tucked in and make baby steps. Bring the band in and out towards your chest. Step back and fight your way through it! You’ll do 5 repetitions a total of 5 times before you switch sides.

Well, what did you think? This series was intended to help you with your golf swing. Are you ready to get moving? Head to the gym to try this routine. Let us know what you think!
