Early Hip Extension is caused by limited ankle mobility, poor hip or core strength, or tightness in the lats. Fixing this swing fault will lead to increased power and consistency in ball striking. The exercise we are using in this video is called “Deep Squat, Heels Up, Arms Raised”. This fix will improve core strength and movement patterns for your squat.
