This might not look like a stretch but IT IS!
Right now I’m using this mostly with golfers but their is practical application in many other athletic activities. Some form of torso #ROTATION occurs during almost every sport, including running, swimming, volleyball, baseball and martial arts.
As we age the natural rotational ability of the spine is often reduced because we just dont move as much and if we do it’s often repetitive motion in the same plane of movement. Even if you do move in many planes there are often improper patterning/sequencing issues that have developed over time. ALL athletes can benefit from this stretch!
Golfers if you want to improve “lag” this is one stretch you can try.
1) While lying down put one arm straight over head.
2) Reach as far as you can across your body with the other arm as if you were trying to roll over using only your upper body.
3) Let the hips lag behind as far as you can and keep reaching with your upper body for about 60 second
4) Repeat on both sides.
Everyone I’ve had try this says it feel so crazy! Test it out and let me know what you think!
