Box Step Ups – Strengthen Your Glutes
by Director of Fitness, Ted Bonham
This exercise is a great way to create more hip turn in the golf swing. The equipment needed is a step stool, free weight or medicine ball. Choose the weight based on your physical abilities. Holding onto a free weight or medicine ball for resistance, place your left leg up on a step stool. Without rotating your trunk or upper body, stand up with your left leg and rotate your hips around your body ( Heisman Trophy Pose) fully extending your left knee. Rotate your right knee so it points to the opposite wall. Then return to the starting position. Perform three set of ten repetitions on each side. Another benefit to this exercise is cardio. Make sure you breathe and perform at a steady, controlled pace.
