Too much sway or slide in your golf swing?

Hip mobility and strength are important for golfers, whether using a modern or more classical golf swing. Limitations in mobility and strength around the hips can be related to certain movement characteristics in the golf swing. If you do present movement characteristics during the golf swing, like sway, slide, early extension, and/or over the top, its always best to seek a golf coach/professional first. One of these movement characteristics might be helping you create a good impact position. Additionally, just by performing the exercises mentioned in this video alone, it is very unlikely to 'cure' movement characteristics in the golf swing.

As mentioned before, work with a golf coach is necessary. Exercises like these aim to compliment and help your work with your coach. For the mobility exercises, it is recommended you perform each for about 30seconds, 1-2 times a day for 4-5 times per week. For the strength training exercises, it depends on your starting point, but here's an example if you can use progressive overload/increase weights.

Week 1-4 = 1-2 sets of 12-15

Week 5-8 = 2-3 sets of 10-12

Week 9-12 = 3-4 sets of 6-8
