With the golf swing being a rotational movement it requires us to have strength all around the body. This enables us to rotate well and hold ourselves in good posture.
This exercise is good to improve our balance and strength down the side of the body.
Starting on your right side, place one foot on top of the other and your elbow under your shoulder. From here lift your hips to make the body in a straight line from head to toe. Focus on keeping your hips pushed forwards too, so the body is straight throughout. Start by holding for 20 seconds on each side and gradually see if you can increase the time.
The aim here is to increase the rotation in the shoulders whilst strengthening the centre of the body.
Begin by kneeling on your left knee with your right foot in front of you. Holding a weight in your hands, rotate it over you right shoulder as far as you can and then swing back and bring the weight behind your left hip. Keep your chest up and head looking forward for good posture and balance throughout. Complete it 12 times on each side, twice through.

Laying on your back with your feet straight up towards the ceiling. Keeping your arms straight, lift the shoulders off the ground to try and touch as far up towards your toes as you can. Control the lower back down to the ground. Repeat 12 times, twice through.
