GET TENSION OUT OF YOUR SHOULDERS WITH SHOULDER CIRCUMDUCTION
Tension comes in several fashions: Mental, Emotional, Physical – and Nutritional are but a few ways. Regarding physical stress, Sitting Down is probably the most common way that stress develops in our bodies, and especially in our Shoulders. When we sit down and bend over, the shoulders, neck, and upper back are actually carrying the weight of the head – which is designed to be directly on top of the shoulders and the hips. (Imagine carrying a bowling ball around the back of your neck all day!)
In the golf swing, having tight shoulders will absolutely retard the free flowing motion of the upper trunk and rob the golfer of a smooth and powerful golf swing. On that note, one of the things I always remember about Jack Nicklaus, was when he would walk down the fairway shaking his arms and shoulders to get any tension out of his arms.
In today’s video, Tommy Jacobs, Susan, and myself are demonstrating a super easy to do Arm and Shoulder Circumduction exercise to… TAKE A SWING AT TENSION!!
