Wrist issues are the #3 injury among golfers.
If you think about it, the wrists are the connector between your body and the club, so any issues or blockages that you have going on in your wrists could negatively impact your golf swing.
Try this simple yet effective wrist stretch to help alleviate any tension and improve the tempo of your swing.
From your hands and knees, start to rotate your hands out so you're turning them out away from one another, walking them around, as far as you can.
Maybe that means pausing about here so the fingers are pointing at about four and seven, our four and eight.
Or if you have the mobility in your wrist, walk them back even further so your fingertips are facing your knees.
At either position, start by shifting your weight forward so it's primarily in the palms, and then very slowly start to shift your weight back.
Keep the heels of your hands down as long as you can, you’ll start to feel a stretch for the forearm, the wrist, maybe even into the palms.
With extensive training in Chain Reaction Biomechanics, Lauren McMillin’s main focus is to assist athletes in cultivating integrated joint and muscle stabilization, improve their mobility, achieve a greater range of motion, and learn sport-specific kinematic sequencing. The combination of exercises Lauren focuses on will lead to all athletes feeling better and perform their best, regardless of age, experience, or injury.
Lauren’s YoGolf Performance is based on the science of the biomechanics of the golf swing. Lauren has modelled her program using Katherine Roberts’ Yoga for Golfers, The Gray Institute’s 3DMAPS, and her own training in yoga, Pilates, and functional movement.
Increase power. Reduce the risk of injury. Improve mobility, stability, and range of motion.
