AUGUST FITNESS tip
By Lake Nona Fitness Trainer Mitch Sadowsky
MED BALL CHOPS
As we all know, the golf swing is a complex series of events, moving in and out of planes of motion. Hopefully, if everything goes right, we’ll square one up and hit it flush. Oddly enough, even if we don’t move correctly, we could still square one up. And other times, we move perfectly and we end up like Jordan Spieth did at The Open – between a couple of trailers.
Being able to control movement in planes of motion is just as important, if not more important, than just simply being able to move well. Mobility without stability can end up causing more problems than simply “not being flexible.”
Using patterns like chops and lifts with medicine balls are great for creating stability, explosiveness, and even increasing range of motion. Using your core as a source of stability and anti-rotation will give your body a more stable feeling, allowing you to create more rotation and more force.
Half-Kneeling Med Ball Chop
Chop your way to a stronger mid-section and better golf swing!
• In a half-kneeling position (on one knee, back foot is dorsiflexed- toe pointed to the ground), take a medium-weight medicine ball and raise it with both arms over the shoulder of the knee that is up.
• Slam the ball down as hard as you can, keeping your spine
straight and minimizing rotation of the upper body. Do this 10 times and switch knees, then repeat.
• These can be done in at the beginning, in the middle or end of your training session or even as a warm-up to your round.
