Hey everybody this is Coach TA, Trevor Anderson,
00:04
TRX Master Instructor, here at the
00:06
Better Everyday Performance Institute.
00:08
I want to share with you an exercise I really
00:10
love to help you understand how to engage all
00:13
the muscles necessary for a proper golf swing.
00:15
I'm going to use our TRX Suspension Trainer
00:17
and do TRX Golf Swings. It goes like this.
00:23
Start in a nice balanced golf posture,
00:25
facing your anchor point with the straps at mid length.
00:28
Put your right palm facing up,
00:30
and your left palm facing down, and put
00:32
tension into the straps so that they remain taut.
00:35
Start your backswing by getting to the top,
00:38
feeling like you're still in full control at the top
00:40
of the backswing, with everything engaged.
00:43
Start your downswing by initiating your
00:45
hips moving to the left, then your torso,
00:48
and finally your arms. We want to maintain that great
00:51
kinematic sequence throughout.
00:54
The key is, finding the ground
00:56
and then starting that downswing.
00:58
When you're finished, you should be looking underneath
01:00
the straps as if you're watching the ball fly away.
01:04
Remember, this is not made to simulate your exact golf swing
01:08
but to help you activate all the muscles
01:11
to stay connected and efficient throughout.
01:18
Now you see why the TRX Golf Swing
01:19
is one of my favorite exercises.
01:21
It helps you understand how to stay connected
01:23
to the ground and stay fully engaged
01:25
throughout the course of your golf swing.
01:27
You can use this exercise for activation,
01:29
or just part of your workout to
01:31
enhance and improve your golf.
