Abdominal muscles

Abdominal muscles

The Rectus Abdominis The most well-known and prominent abdominal muscle is the rectus abdominis.  It is the long, flat muscle that extends vertically between the pubis and the fifth, sixth, and seventh ribs.

Accountability to the Plan

Every student that comes to us has a strong desire to be really good at this game, and a willingness to work hard to get there. Most of them, however, have previously struggled, no matter how hard they worked, to achieve long-term, sustainable improvement.

Damage Control: The Backwards Slap Save

The backwards slap shot may seem a little trivial, it’s a “trick” shot that you’re not going to use very often.

If you’re a “sensible” golfer, you may see this shot played and regard it as reckless, and a sure sign of a...
