Warm up Wednesday: Push it!

A few weeks ago I posted a great glute activation exercise to use as a warm up called the Lateral Wall Push, and today’s is a follow up on that.  So bust out your Salt N Pepa and let’s push it real good!

The Backward Wall Push

A Few Keys:

  • I personally have to stretch my hip flexors ahead of time in order to get the most out of this.  Mine are tight as a drum after the past 3 days of travel!
  • Set up in your golf posture with one foot placed against the wall
  • Make sure your entire foot is in contact with it
  • Check in on your posture, if your back is too arched, this will be a challenging one for you
  • There needs to be a straight line from your knee to the hip and shoulder
  • Push your heel into the wall as hard as you can until you feel that lovely glute burn!
  • Hold for 20sec on each side or until you say oooh baby baby!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
