GetGolfFit 2020 Ep.3: Bicycle Crunches and Alt. Leg Raise Toe Taps

In this edition of Get Golf Fit presented by Michelob Ultra, Jason Witczak and Karin Hart demonstrate two exercises: Bicycle Crunches and Alt. Leg Raise Toe Taps. These exercises will help you build strength, gain power and improve flexibility to see improved performance on the golf course.

BICYCLE CRUNCHES

Targets: Abdominals and obliques

Bicycle Crunches are a bodyweight exercise that strengthen the core. They may improve mobility and balance and help improve your body’s support during a golf swing. Many other muscles are engaged and used for stabilization during this exercise as well, like your obliques.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Lie flat on back
  • Put your hands behind your head, then bring one knee in toward your chest.
  • Simultaneously, lift your shoulders off the ground and bring the opposite side elbow to the knee that’s up in a 45-degree angle.
  • Now switch sides and do the same motion on the other side to complete one rep.
  • Do three sets of 10-20 reps.

ALT. LEG RAISE TOE TAPS

Targets: Abdominals and obliques

Alternating Leg Raise Toe Taps are a bodyweight exercise that strengthen the core. They may improve mobility and balance and help improve your body’s support during a golf swing. Many other muscles are engaged and used for stabilization during this exercise as well, like your obliques.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Lie flat on back
  • Stretch your hands straight out past your head, then bring one leg up in the air.
  • Simultaneously, lift your shoulders off the ground and bring the opposite side arm up to the leg that’s in the air.
  • Now switch sides and do the same motion on the other side to complete one rep.
  • Do three sets of 10-20 reps.
