Have been working on sequencing backswing though downswing with Chris. Found I was not getting off my lower right side soon enough so the upper body took over and reinjured a Piriformos muscle injury that pinched my sciatic nerve. It was originally injured and now is apparently chronic when a different instructor suggested swinging the heavy momentum club and getting my hips moving my weight off the right side. My left side is not as developed as the right side so I have problem completing the weight shift then rotation in the right sequence and timing. Do you have suggestions for stretching then strength in therapy for the pirafomis syndrome

Hello Stephen. I don't have much suggestion for you on the therapy of your issue. Many apologies. However, you need to develop that feel for pulling with the inner adductors. It doesn't have to be so dramatic to get the weight moving in the right sequence. Take a look at Which Muscles to Feel in Golf Swing Transition and Preventing Hip Pain.

Damien: I cannot thank you enough and tell you what a HUGE difference in my game your core exercises have made in my focus of what moves a golf swing. 1. As you have stated keeping your belly button pulled toward the spine during the ENTIRE swing makes a huge difference in separation, stability, and power. It is easy to start ones swing with the belly button pulled in and then forget about it. It makes a big difference when that is done all the way through the backswing and downswing. By focusing on it it is now becoming second nature. 2. Also by keeping my core "engaged", I am getting far more separation, the upper body turning against the lower body with a huge bonus: less arm tension. Kudos to you, my man. Thank you for improving my game.

There is an old wisdom: You are only as strong as your weak side is. Training only one side reinforce the inbalance that Golf causes and will lead to injury eventually. I would suggest to make the movements both sides with more reps to the right.

He said "belly button is pulled in towards the back" when doing the rotating drill with the ball. Should we be pulling our belly button in during the golf swing?

Interesting that jumping up and down puts us in the correct NJA! Hadn't heard that one before. These are all exercises I want to do. Without a written set of guidelines I will have to either create them myself or try to do them in real time listening to your instruction. That might work. Either way, I see the benefit and as I'm getting older I need to maintain that flexibility and strengthen both my core and glutes. thx Terr y

I have been working out at Megaformer studio for 3 years where the focus is on resistant training and core strengthening. Very much what the vidoes demonstrate but on a special machine designed especially for that purpose. You can check it out on Lagree Fitness website. Extremely effective.

Thanks for these three videos. They're really quality/professional core exercises. I'd recommend players get started with the exercises and not to over stress in the beginning. Develop (rehearse) a set of these exercises and gradually extend the amount of reps/time as your strength increases. Let's keep it as fun as possible. Buzz
