Glute Series Intro

The glutes are the most important muscles in the golf swing and this video series will teach you to break up adhesions, lengthen and then strengthen them for power and consistency in your golf swing. The series walks you through the three phases necessary to get the most out of these powerful and critically important muscles. For right handed golfers, the left glute and hip complex is the most important set of muscles you have in the golf swing. Unfortunately, these muscles get trained to not function properly due to our sedentary lifestyle and how we sit so much at work. This series addresses these issues by teaching you first how to break up the adhesions in the muscle that bind the muscle to the connective tissue and keep it from moving properly. Next we focus on lengthening the muscle through a great glute stretch specific to golfers. Finally, once the muscle is open and available for full recruitment, we focus on building strength. But it's not just strength in the final video, we're helping the brain learn to fire that muscle again. Many of you will struggle with this exercise and this exercise will help you engage the muscle and activate it and start training the brain to properly and quickly fire this muscle again.

Hi Damien ... Do you have any advice or stretches for folks who have tight hamstrings from sitting at the computer all days long? I have a hard time staying off the balls of my feet and in the quads as opposed to being able to get the back of the knees over the ankles at address. I mean, I can do it, thanks to a great Chris Tyler video on this topic (albeit with a fair bit of conscious effort) ... but stretched hamstrings would help considerably. I'm getting a stand up desk for starters Cheers.

Hello Jaleel. Other than the videos in the category. I don't have much more advice for you as Damien is no longer with RST. I apologize about this inconvenience.

This is a great intro into the golfers problem area glutes but you failed to target the differences that golf creates between the left and right. Usually the left side (for right handed golfers) is far more stronger then the right due to the forces that occurs by weight shift and follow through. So if you don´t try to keep the differences in a certain range ( means strengthen the weaker side) most golfers will suffer injuries at some point in their career!

Fabulous idea for this fitness series. I hope there will be more. Suggestion, add process to evaluate individuals glute status and provide glute goal. This allows evaluation of potential gain and status toward the desired end. Also, the voice echo makes it hard on my ears. Hope future series improves voice quality. Look forward to more fitness videos specific to golf.

Damien, Nice overview. I Like the sequencing of these exercises and the rational you've provided. Can't wait to see the new glute series. One question, if we don't have a Nova Ball or Softball would a foam coil roller or small (tennis ball size) hard rubber ball work as well for the Myo-facial break-up exercises?

Hey Dean, The softball size is ideal for this particular technique. However a foam roller will definitely get the job done. Ideally a tennis ball size is going to be great for spot specific (local) areas that need to be mobilized. A soft ball or foam roller is going to be able to cover larger areas (global) which is ideal for the glutes. Thanks!

Charles' point is right on -- a wireless lapel mic (aka Lavelier mic) transmitting audio to a receiver on the video camera is a standard professional videographer practice. Bob

Someone should undertake a quality control review before launching a video like this one. It is very difficult to understand due to the poor audio quality.

Looking forward to the series. Is it possible to use a wire mic to make the vocals easier to understand? Thank you.
