Tiger Woods once frustratingly said that “his glutes weren’t activating” and “firing.” As that quote circulated throughout the golf world he became the, shall we say, “butt” of a joke that many weekend hackers used with buddies to explain a poor shot or round.
The truth is that limited mobility or soreness in your glutes can impact your swing and your game. Chronic injuries in your chest and shoulders can also wreak havoc both on your scorecard and your ibuprofen supply.
Kambeitz Chiropractic continues their series on helping get golfers back on the course and out of pain with this series of three videos illustrating stretches for the lats, pecs, and yes…the glutes. Take a look and try these stretches before your next round and your glutes will be firing on all cylinders. Your game? Well, it might just start to come around as well.
Thomas DuBois of Kambeitz Chiropractic demonstrates the stretches and specializes in Active Isolated Stretching/Strengthening (AISS). AISS is a complete form of bodywork that optimizes the performance and function of our muscles by quickly enhancing flexibility, nerve conduction, and control in our musculature. The result is better mobility, blood flow, enhanced waste removal and quicker firing speed to each individual muscle group that is treated.
