In this second series of exercises here,
00:08
we're gonna show you a different move.
00:11
It's a really nice glute activation
00:13
as well as a T spine rotation,
00:15
so we're gonna bring in a mini band around the ankles
00:17
and a heavier mini band above the knees,
00:19
and Moira's gonna step out, she's gonna grasp the band
00:22
about shoulder width apart, palms to the sky,
00:27
and then as she takes her step,
00:28
she's gonna make her little T spine rotation,
00:31
really good for upper thrusting mobility
00:33
as well as loading that glit, glute, excuse me.
00:36
We know how important loading those glutes are,
00:38
strengthening the glutes
00:39
for stabilizing the lower body, Andrew.
00:41
Yeah.
00:42
Let's show them sideways too.
00:44
Yep.
00:44
Sideways.
00:48
And also, too, how important those glutes are
00:49
for exploding, creating some speed in a golf swing.
00:54
So this is a great exercise here to warm up with,
00:57
activate the glutes, keep that upper body nice and warmed up
01:03
and now let's go into the follow through, please.
01:07
Nice form, Moira.
01:08
Excellent.
01:10
Good, always working that breath and great stuff.
01:15
So here's a great couple of exercises you can do at home
01:20
or at the gym.
01:21
Get your bands out and get to work.
