If you could only do one exercise for the rest of your life; this is the one. Especially if you are a golfer. The Getup is the single most important exercise you can do to improve how your body moves for your golf swing. It may not look like the golf swing, but some of the best ‘golf specific’ exercises don’t.
The Getup a.k.a The Turkish Getup is a kettlebell strength movement popularized by Dr. Gray Cook and Strength Coach Pavel Tsatsouline. It is not just for hard training athletes who want bulletproof shoulders and a strong midsection; or for the forward thinking Clinicians rehabilitating injuries and restoring function. Maybe you have seen it being done in the gym, or somewhere on social media. Maybe you know how to do Getups or maybe it is completely foreign. Regardless of where you are starting from The Getup is a standalone golf specific exercise with many benefits to golf performance.
The Getup provides many benefits to you as a golfer:
It will open your thoracic spine (the section of your spine your ribs attach to), which is one of the primary centers of rotation for your golf swing.
It will improve your hip mobility so you can use your hips and legs to create power and spare your lower back from any unnecessary stress.
The Getup will open your shoulder capsule and build shoulder stability, so you can have more leverage at the top of your backswing.
Need balance, the Getup does that too.
Improve your overall movement capacity to have a more efficient golf swing with fewer biomechanics limitations.
Create a stronger cross body connection.
Want a strong midsection? The Getup has you covered there. Build a better transmission ( you know your abs), so you can deliver more force from your legs through your abs and into your arms/hands/clubhead. The Getup up will increase your ability to create linkage. Linkage being how you are able to connect your opposite shoulder to your opposite hip/leg through your abs. This is key to transmitting force through your body in your golf swing. The better you can do this, the more power you can create. Even though this is not a “power” exercise like a depth jump or kettlebell swing, you will increase your ability to produce power.
Not only are all of these physiological benefits available, but inside this ebook The Getup is connected back to the 16 Titleist Performance Institute swing characteristics so you can see why what you are doing is relevant to your golf swing.
