The Half Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch is an amazing stretch to do throughout your everyday life, but also throughout your round of golf. Unfortunately, sitting has become the most common activity we do on a daily basis, and because of this, our bodies will adapt. Our hip flexors will shorten and our glutes will lengthen because this allows us to efficiently sit all day.
If your hip flexors are tight, there’s a chance you will have increased compression in your low back while standing, never mind swinging a golf club. Stretching out the front of your hips will allow you to access your glutes during your downswing to produce more power. It will also protect your low back and make turning your hips in your backswing and follow through a little bit easier.
However, the best part of the stretch is that it is portable. Take it to the course during your next round. If it’s wet out, throw down a towel. Drop one knee down, squeeze your glute on that side to level your pelvis, and push your hips and torso forward for a 3-5 second count. Back off and reset. Repeat this for 5-8 reps on each side every 4-6 holes and you’ll feel better during and after your round.
