You already know that it’s a good idea to warm up before playing a round of golf. You play better and have fewer aches and pains after.
The problem is that the warm-up you usually do either takes too long or is inconvenient to do.
What you need are a few key exercises that you can do right from home (and even some you can do on the course) to help make sure that you are moving well before you play.
What Exercise to Do Before You Play Golf
In today’s video, Coach Bradley is going to show you exactly what you need to do before you tee off to improve your golf game.
We wanted to keep it simple but effective, so here are three easy-to-do exercises that will:
- Improve your rotation
- Open up your hips and upper back
- Wake up your core
- Active your hips to increase swing speed
Watch below to see what you can do to improve your game by including these in your warm-up routine:

Yes, strength and power are important on the golf course, but so is mobility – and that’s exactly where you need to focus your warm up.
Why is Mobility So Important?
By activating certain muscles and getting them warmed up and loose, you are ensuring that you will get the most out of your time on the course.
Don’t let the first three holes be your warm-up. Instead, show up on the course ready to play well from the very first swing.
A good golf swing requires large, sweeping movements from several different muscle groups.
If you do not have a full range of motion, your golf swing will suffer.
Furthermore, you need all these muscle groups to work together to make sure you’re executing your best possible swing.
But don’t worry…a full golf warm up doesn’t have to take a long time.
By doing the right things, in the right order, you can get a lot done in a short amount of time.
