Whether you want better posture for increased golf performance, injury prevention or simply a more confident, youthful appearance, this blog is a must-read. In this two-part blog series, Dr Ben Langdown, Sports Scientist, Golf Strength & Conditioning Coach and researcher in the field of Golf Biomechanics and S&C, gives us a thorough breakdown of how desk posture can affect your golf performance and what you can do to fix it. I was lucky enough to meet Ben at the Titleist World Golf Fitness Summit, 2014, where he and his colleague Jack Wells came all the way from England to give an outstanding presentation on the ultimate dynamic warm-up for golfers. Many of you have heard me reference their research since then (yep, Ben is one of the experts that helps his golfers hit the ball up to 40 yards farther just by giving them the right type of warm-up).
In Part 1, Ben will discuss anterior pelvic tilt, known as ‘lower crossed syndrome’ in some areas of physical therapy, the swing faults or injuries that may accompany it, and together we will show you exercises you can start performing today to improve your lower body posture. I hope you enjoy it!
