The hips are the engine of the body, not only for our posture and anatomical function, but also in our golf swings. Our research has proven that Pelvic Rotation is mandatory for a functional golf swing, and to develop speed and power.

Due to the Sitting Down Forward Bending Culture we live in, the overwhelming majority of our population have tight hips; simply due to the fact that when we sit, our hip muscles actually tighten up.

The Supine Bound Angle Pose in the video today is a simple pose that will surely help free up your hips and thighs which will allow you to make a functional and powerful golf swing. Note: if you have bad knees, don’t pull your feet up too close to your torso, and/or put some pillows underneath your knees so that they’re comfortable.

WHOLE BODY STRETCHES AND EXERCISES ARE THE WAY TO GO!!

Remember, the old children’s nursery rhyme, “The Ankle Bone’s connected to the Shin Bone –The Shin Bone’s connected to the Knee Bone…”  The muscles of the human body are just like your car.  IE., They’re like tile on a roof and all run and work together.  Getting the body back into its natural 4 socket position design gets all of the muscles WORKING TOGETHER and help take the friction off of the injured joint and allow it to heal.  This is the reason why a lot of surgeries don’t take and people often end up with multiple surgeries.  Isn’t it interesting that around 1 out of 3 back surgeries are Re-Do’s?

In today’s video, I demonstrate how a couple of GREAT products- the Postursizer and Slant Board, will  help straighten you and get you back into proper anatomical alignment.  Once you get off of the Slant Board, you’ll feel what I call ‘The Thoracic Lift’.  At this point, not only will you feel Lighter and Taller, but you’ll be ready to do your exercises more effectively and……………. Go For It!

The Body IS the Mind

THE BODY IS THE MIND” is a phrase I heard Deepak Chopra say a while back while we were involved in a seminar at La Costa Resort & Spa. Although I’ve known that for a long time, I’ve never quite put it that way; instead saying, ‘Your Posture is a Reflection of what’s going on/on the Inside’.  Regardless, I think Deepak’s interpretation is more provocative.

Static Extension Shoulder Presses

THE BODY IS ‘ONE WORKING UNIT’ where everything is connected, and related.  For example, if your  shoulders are rounded and out of position, your hips will almost certainly be out of position.  If you have problems with your Left Knee or Left Hip, there’ll be a real good chance that your right hip and shoulder are out of position, etc. This is why I seldom prescribe a certain stretch or exercise, for the area of the body where the pain or dysfunction shows up.

HOWEVER, there are specific stretches and exercises that you can do periodically throughout the day that address the problem area and will help restore it to anatomical position.

In today’s video, I’m showing you STATIC EXTENSION SHOULDER PRESSES, which are actually an abbreviated form of doing a push up.  These simple to do Shoulder Presses are not strenuous and will help strengthen your upper back and shoulders  (which is a good thing to do for C Curve Posture, where the hips have weakened pulled the upper torso back with them – creating the rounding).

Do You Spend A Lot Of Time With Your Head Looking Down? In this video  I’m showing you a simple little routine that will help you get the kinks out of your neck from the stain ‘Looking Down’ puts on it. No doubt, the main reason for this is because of our Sitting Down ’Sedentary Lifestyle’ which not only tightens and creates muscle imbalances throughout our torso, but, has us looking down into our iPhones, Computers, Golf Stances, etc.

This pose is excellent for developing function (mobility and stability) in your legs as well as creating bilateral hip activity on both sides of your torso. Like the Triangle, it increases range of motion in the muscles of your sides (lats and obliques), as well as developing strength in your legs, which will help create greater ease in trunk rotation and synchronize all of the body’s major muscle group.

The Pectoralis Stretch

Do This Simple Stretch Throughout the Day to Open up Your Chest

In the golf swing, the upper part of the spine and chest rotates approximately 60% more than the lower spine.  In the illustration here, you can see what is happening as the FRONT upper chest muscles EXPAND, and the BACK MUSCLES contract (or shorten).
