"If you worry about making bogeys, it makes the game that much more difficult. You put more pressure on yourself without even noticing it. It makes a difference to take it easy when things aren’t going right."Sergio Garcia

Twisting Chest Press


The twisting chest press is a great exercise to target the obliques while still getting some chest and shoulder work in.

  1. Anchor the exercise band at chest height.
  2. Step away from the anchor position to create a little bit of resistance.
  3. Position your feet in a 7 iron stance so your toes are facing directly opposite the anchor position.
  4. Bring your hands up so they are just below shoulder height with the exercise band over your forearm
  5. From the starting position bring the arm holding the exercise band back and twist your torso with it to get your arm as far back towards the anchor as possible.
  6. Then push the arm holding the exercise band forward while your opposite arm swings back, giving your torso maximum rotation.
  7. Make sure you are keeping your stomach tight and glutes engaged during the exercise.
  8. Perform 2 sets of 12 repetitions of this exercise on both sides.
