Core Golf Swing Exercise – Karen Palacios-Jansen

This month we continue Karen Palacios-Jansen’s excellent series of golf fitness training videos with her Core Rotator exercise simulating your golf swing.

This core golf swing exercise will help you with your body motion to improve your turn and weight shift.

  1. Hold a golf club between your hands at both ends as shown.
  2. Assume a golf stance with an athletic posture.
  3. Make a backswing trying to simulate your golf swing as much as possible, keeping your arms extended and your eyes looking down at where the ball would be.
  4. Initiate the downswing as a normal swing and try to follow-through as much as possible.
  5. Finish in balance.
  6. Begin slowly at first and then pick up the pace to the speed of a normal golf swing.
  7. Do 8 to 10 repetitions of this exercise.
