This Exercise will improve your golf game.
The Romanian Single leg Deadlift. The drive and approach shots in golf have a few requirements for you to get the most out of your performance. One exercise that provides these is the Romanian single leg deadlift.
Improves leg stability which improves distance and accuracy.
Improves mobility issues.
Improves muscular imbalances.
Improves stability of the ankle, hip and knee joints making them less prone to injury.
How it does all this.
The Romanian single leg deadlift activates your glutes as well as the rest of the posterior chain such as the hamstrings and calf muscles. It also activates the core.
It’s also a one legged exercise which trains balance and improves joint stability much more than a two legged exercise.
How to perform.
- Hold a kettlebell in one hand, hanging to the side. Stand on one leg, on the same side that you hold the kettlebell.
- Keeping that knee slightly bent, perform a stiff-legged deadlift by bending at the hip, extending your free leg behind you for balance. Continue lowering the kettlebell until you are parallel to the ground, and then return to the upright position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
