A GREAT DRILL TO GET YOUR SHOULDERS ON PLANE

If you’re like most people, who spend their life sitting behind a desk, in a car, or in front of the TV, you probably have tight pecs and shoulder – which in turn, create forward head posture.  Having a tight and restricted upper torso (accompanied with forward head posture) makes it harder to open up your chest and rotate your shoulders through the shot.

Controlling your shoulders means controlling your swing. Remember, big muscles control little muscles. Try the flagstick drill and you’ll begin to feel the proper rotation of your shoulders, as well as all of your body parts moving in unison.

In the video I demonstrate a drill for keeping the shoulders “on plane” but it’s a lot harder if you can’t open up and expand your chest.  The best way to get more flexibility in your shoulders might surprise you… It starts with stretching your lower body.

In Roger Fredericks Reveals Secrets to Golf Swing Flexibility™ DVD Set, I show you not just which parts of your body to stretch but the right way to stretch, which includes which order to stretch in.  Like tiles on the roof of your house, each muscle in your body is independent but only works when they all work together in the right direction.

what are best drills to use after right hip replacemrnt

By Roger Fredericks on

Bill, nearly all hip replacement procedures are due to muscle imbalances - which result in tight and shortened hip flexors, which then put the head of the femur and ascetabulum out of position.  The best way is to a).  Relax the hip flexors and get an a whole body Flexibility and Posture Restoration program, to make sure the musculoskeletal system is back in proper alignment; thus taking any friction off of the joints.As I've said, I never prescribe protocols for injuries without seeing the actual person, simply because everybody is different and requires different things.  I would suggest you find an Egoscue Method clinic near you, or sign up for m Custom Tailored Posture Resoration Program on my website.   www.fredericksgolf.com

Any suggestions for excersies for someone who has a compression fracture?

By Roger Fredericks on

John,  Compression fractures are normally due to a person's posture being out of proper alignment which then compress the vertebrae.  Relaxing and stretchign these muscles  'THROUGHOUT THE BODY' will usually take the friction off and allow the fracture to heal naturally.  Surgery is sometimes required, but many surgeries don't cure the SOURCE of the problem...ie., the tightness of the imbalanced muscles. You might want to enlist in my Posture Restoration Program on my website so I can see specifically what caused the muscles imbalances, and what to do about it.
