The Base Rotation Exercise is a great way to work your whole body, build speed and endurance in your legs and core, and increase your core temperature as part of your warm-up routine.
The Base Rotation Exercise forms part of the Golf Movement Preparation series of innovative and dynamic exercises that will increase your core temperature, prepare your nervous system for performing the golf swing, and strengthen your body.
- Start by standing in an athletic position, with your knees slightly bent and your hips back.
- Keeping your chest facing straight ahead, jump slightly off the floor and rotate your hips to the right as you move your arms to the left.
- Land and immediately jump back so that your hips face to your left.
- Continue for the desired amount of time.
Focus on swivelling your hips, not your shoulders and torso.
Use your arms to counterbalance your hips.
You should feel it working your core, hips, knees, and ankles as it challenges your coordination.
