Core Strengthening Part Two

Once you’ve got Monday’s exercises down to a fine art, try adding these core exercises to your routine.  Don’t forget that you should always keep your core muscles tightened during these exercises.  These exercises are killing me right now going to make me such a better golfer come spring!

Modified plank

Start by laying on your stomach.  Raise yourself up so that you’re resting your forearms and your knees, then align your head and neck with your back.  Make sure your shoulders directly above your elbows and tighten those abs!   Press your elbows and knees towards one another; neither should move from their positions on the floor.  Hold for three breaths.  Return to the starting position.  Repeat 3-5 times.

Side plank

Start by laying on your left side.  Raise yourself up onto your right forearm.  Put your right shoulder directly above your right elbow and keep your hips and knees aligned.  Rest your left arm on the left side of your body and tighten your abdominal muscles.  Hold for three breaths, then return to your starting position.  Repeat with right side and then do 3-5 reps on each side.

Lie on your stomach and tighten your core muscles.  Raise your arms and legs off the floor.  Hold for three breaths, then return to your starting position. Repeat 3-5 times.

Banana
