Low Trunk Rotation with Kettlebell


Description: The Low Trunk Rotation exercise with the kettlebell works on the upper back and even mid to low back rotation. It can also be used to strengthen the obliques for rotation. This is a huge help to your pivot and coil motion in your golf swing and will help create more force and a faster clubhead speed.

Summary:
  1. Start by laying flat on your back with your arms outstretched. Use a kettlebell as an anchor on one side. Be sure to pick a weight that you can use to maintain a controlled motion.
  2. Roll your leg and lower body on the opposite side towards the floor away from the kettelbell.
  3. Next, using your abdominals raise the kettlebell straight up over your head keeping your arm straight.
  4. Slowly roll back and place the kettlebell back on the ground. Pull up to the count of one, pause at the top and slowly lower back down to the count of 3.
  5. Perform 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions on each side. As weeks progress and you get stronger gradually increase your weight.
