If you’re like most people, you’ve probably noticed that as you’ve gotten older (and played deeper onto the Back Nine of Life), your backswing and drives have both gotten shorter.
One way to see if your lack of flexibility is causing this, is to check out your lat muscles. If your lats and pecs are tight, the odds are your backswing will be restricted. Keeping the lats flexible is crucial to maintaining a long and free-flowing swing for a lifetime.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY RETARD THE AGING PROCESS AND KEEP YOUR SWING LONG AND FREE-FLOWING BY DOING THE PROPER FLEXIBLITY PROTOCOLS!
However, I also want to emphasize – It’s not just doing one stretch that will cure you, it’s the whole combination. All these muscles work together. After you find out just how much your lats are restricting your backswing, don’t just do an overhead extension stretch to try and cure your lat muscles. Make sure you get on an all-encompassing flexibility program that especially targets your lower body, core, and upper torso.
If you do the right stretches in the right order, and especially ‘BREATHE’ properly, you don’t have to lose your flexibility and distance!
With consistency and diligence you’ll start to achieve radical improvement in your flexibility and in your swing.
