The Toes and Heels Exercise is a great way to develop stabilising strength and mobility in your hip flexors, enabling you to maintain your posture and body angles better for a more consistent and efficient golf swing, and more accurate ball striking.
The Toes and Heels Exercise forms part of the Golf Stability series of innovative and dynamic exercises that will build stability in your joints and core for better consistency and ball-striking.
Figure 1. Toes and Heels Exercise Video.
- Start by lying face-up on the floor, with your arms out at your sides, and your legs lifted straight above you, feet together.
- Keep your heels touching as you slowly rotate through your hips to separate your feet from each other at the toes.
- Rotate through your hips back to the starting position.
- Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
Keep your legs straight and your feet together at the heels throughout the movement. Initiate the movement with your hips.
You should feel it working your hips, and to a lesser extent your abdominal muscles.
