Resistant bands.

This is a golf fitness training drill used to emphasize the contribution of the hips through the hitting zone. A great drill to use that enhances swing mechanics but without the club in hand.

Golf fitness is now considered crucial amongst all tour pros. Golf fitness is something you can do at home, so purchase a yoga mat, unfurl it in your front room, home office, or bedroom, and start doing some golf-specific fitness workouts.

Getting golf fit is one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve your golf game. And hey, the side effects aren’t bad either: live longer, increase the quality of life, and release loads of happy endorphins into your bloodstream, gain muscle and flexibility, reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes, strengthen your bones and muscles, prevent falls (falls are the leading cause of death, injury and hospital admissions among the elderly), reduce your risk of some cancers.


Step 1: Watch
Watch the video.


Step 2: Attach Band 
Attach a band to a door handle.

Step 3: Pull The Band
Position yourself far enough from the door so you have a little tension in the stretch bands.

Hold with the right hand. Body perpendicular to door (not facing it).

Reach over with the left hand and hold with the left hand as well as the right hand (you’re now in a perfect backswing hip turn).

Pull the band away from the wall into your left side.

Step 4: Repeat
Return to start and repeat.

Step 5: Keep Score
The good news is that you can simulate competition during your golf fitness drills by keeping score. Do three sets of twelve reps. Keep a score of how many sets you did.
