Always do this exercise before teeing off! This is a two for one exercise that really activates your lower and upper body at the same time. To complete the hip hinge, push your butt back while trying to keep all your weight on the heels of your feet. While keeping a slight bend at the knees, lean forward at the hips and maintain a neutral spine (in other words, don't round your back). Next, raise your club up and rotate to either side slowly at first, gradually increasing the range of motion as you get more comfortable with the movement. Now you're ready to swing away!
