The Band Core Rotation on an Exercise Ball is a great way to build power and speed in your core while developing rotational stability.
The Band Core Rotation on an Exercise Ball forms part of the Golf Power series of innovative and dynamic exercises that are designed to efficiently build explosive power in your golf swing, increasing club head speed and shot distance.
This exercise requires an exercise ball and a resistance band or tubing. Alternatively, you could use a cable machine.
The exercise ball is often referred to as a Swiss ball, and also known as a balance ball, fitness ball, gym ball, stability ball, physioball, Swedish ball, therapy ball, or yoga ball.
- Start by lying with your upper back on an exercise ball, your chest facing to the right, holding a resistance band, with both hands and straight arms, that is anchored at about waist-height to your right.
- Pull the band quickly to your right by rotating with your torso while keeping your arms straight.
- Slowly return to the starting position.
- Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
- Repeat with the band anchored to your left, turning to the right
Try to make full turns with your shoulders.
Keep your back straight and your feet flat on the floor.
Keep your shoulder blades pulled back and down, and your abdominal muscles engaged throughout.
You should feel it working your obliques and glutes.
