The offset Lunge….pure awesome

Yes, more lunges coming at you today!  And this one is a favorite, especially for my golfers.  The beauty is you do not need any fancy equipment, as you can see in the video, even your golf clubs can serve as a weight.

The idea is to load weight on just one side of your lunge.  This causes your body to make constant adjustments as you move through the motion because the weight will want to make you fall over.  When it comes to stability, this is what we’re talking about.  Think about the constant environment changes your golf swing goes through in a normal round of golf.  The ground might be slippery, the ball could be below your feet or the wind could even knock you over.  Bottom line, the ability to stabilize under unusual circumstances will only make it easier to execute your shot.

Give this one a try and let me know how it goes! (remember to select a weight that allows you to still keep perfect lunging form!)

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.
