There are 4 Big Ball Exercises you can incorporate into your daily golf fitness routine that will help you with your golf swing.
One of my favorite pieces of very inexpensive equipment that I like to use in my golf fitness routines is a stability ball or big ball.
They are very very popular these days and you can use them for every single muscle of your body but what I urge my clients to do is use them when they warm-up as on the range, before they practice, or before a round of golf.
I’ve got 4 big ball exercises I’m going to show you that you can do on the range or you can do in the gym to help you warm up those muscles.
4 Big Ball Exercises
You’re going to take the ball back and forth, as you do so it helps to warm up that core for rotation. Back and forth just like a merry-go-round. Horizontal rotation also works on helping you to get into your weight shifting back and forth back and forth.
Over The Head
Take your big ball and put it above your head and back and forth, slight side bends. I like to call this the rainbow. I train a lot of Juniors, so we have different names for a lot of different things that we do. Again, go back and forth and you’re keeping your feet planted and you’re trying to separate as much of my rib cage from my hips as possible.
Around The World
Take your big ball and make a movement as if you are going around the world. I have my knees slightly bent to protect my back. I’m engaging my core or pulling my belly button and as if I’m zipping up. I’m taking around and just stretching out back and forth and back and forth that’s called around the world.
The Diagonal Wood Chop
I’m going to go from one side to the other side. Down by my left hip up pass my right shoulder like I’m lifting something off the ground and I’m placing up in the cupboard. Lifting up from the ground and back up. Down and back and you’ll see that your plane or your swing as the ball is away that it is one nice diagonal. Then I go to the other side down and up.
