Hi, this is Damon Goddard, with AMPD Golf Fitness.
00:10
Today, we're gonna show you a few of the dynamic warm-ups
00:13
that we utilize with all of our Tour players on the road,
00:15
whether it be PGA, LPGA.
00:18
This dynamic nature is just gonna get the blood flow goin'
00:20
and it's multidirectional, we absolutely love it.
00:23
So, just these three moves.
00:24
One, I want you with a mini-band
00:26
and we also have a little super-flex band, as well.
00:28
First, what I'm gonna do,
00:30
I like putting this guy around the old ankles.
00:32
I've seen a lot of people do it right below the knees,
00:34
or above the knees,
00:35
but we're gonna work on just lateral stability
00:38
and open up a little bit in a T-Spine rotation,
00:40
so laterally pump, rotate, load over that,
00:43
laterally pump, rotate, load over that,
00:46
then you can pick up tempo.
00:48
I like doing about 10-15 times each side,
00:51
but what I want you do is just get that base
00:53
and rotate around that stand on your swing plane.
00:56
It's really good movement.
00:58
The second one I want you to do, from there;
01:01
we're still gonna use our super-flex band
01:03
and all I want you to do is go to this Reverse Step,
01:06
rotate around the T-Spine, stabilization.
01:09
We're working a lot of lateral stability.
01:10
Now, get that lead glute,
01:12
that left glute for me, right now,
01:14
is gonna be locked and loading, holding nice stability,
01:17
and I want you to kick it out on that.
01:18
The third one I wanna throw in there;
01:21
we're gonna call it just a T-Spine Matrix.
01:23
Get into a staggered stance,
01:26
imagine that you're standing on the rope here.
01:29
What I want you to do from there,
01:30
we're gonna go five, right here.
01:35
Five, straight up to the side.
01:38
Five, adding a little bit of rotation.
01:42
All the while,
01:43
you're working on that stability of the hip, as well.
01:45
Add those three moves to your dynamic warm-up.
01:47
It's gonna help you feel better, play better.
01:48
Unleash Your Swing.
