Upper Body Torso Rotation


The upper body torso rotation is a great exercise to increase your mobility in your upper body and start the disassociation between your upper and lower body.  It is one of the first movements that we can do to begin increasing speed in our swing.

  1. Anchor either the exercise band or TRX Rip trainer 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 in line with the anchor position.
  4. Extend your arms out so they are straight and elbows locked, with your hands at chest height.
  5. Rotate your upper body keeping your arms fixed straight out in front of your body.
  6. Your hips will move slightly during this exercise, but the focus should be on your upper body.
  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, rotating in both directions.
