When it comes to wrist positioning at the top of the backswing, we always talk about bowing (flexing) the lead wrist to help shallow out the club path to allow for more consistent ball striking.
Lead wrist flexion is important, there’s no doubt about it. However, in order for the lead wrist to move further into flexion, the trail wrist has no choice but to move the opposite way into extension.
We often see a lack of wrist extension amongst our amateur golfers. Whether it’s because they’ve previously sprained the wrist or perform repetitive activities that don’t require extension (typing on a keyboard, holding a phone, etc.), we need to gain range of motion to minimize how steep their angle of attack towards the golf ball is.
Shallow swings = consistent swings, which is what we’re working towards with the three wrist extension drills we’ve provided you in the video below.
Wrist mobility goes much deeper than the three drills we’ve laid out in this video. While these drills weren’t specifically prescribed based on your capabilities, we went with three general mobility exercises we believe everybody can benefit from.
With this in mind, we’re happy to announce our partnership with TrueCoach and the launch of our revamped Remote Coaching Program.
TrueCoach is a coaching app that was designed to help you take your training to the next level.
The app provides you with a sleek mobile-friendly interface that displays your individualized training session for that day, allows you to log your weight and track metrics overtime, send videos for coaching critique, and communicate directly with your coach via their private messaging system.
The days of waiting for an email or text message response are over thanks to TrueCoach providing every feature you could possibly think of under one umbrella. On top of that, you’ll receive messages and consistent feedback from us to ensure that you’re staying on track and setting yourself up for success in the weight room and on the golf course.
