Trunk Activated Bridge

  • Post by  Michael McDonnell Jul 31, 2018


The glutes are the king of the golf swing and are meant to generate strength and power. This drill is a great way to get the glutes fired up prior to stepping on the first tee. Using a light band or tube, pull your hands apart keeping your arms straight. This will create activation and tension in your core. Then set your pelvis into a slight posterior tilt and drive through your heels to extend your hips up toward the ceiling squeezing your glutes. The height of the bridge should only be as high as your hips can extend, there shouldn't be any strain in the lumbar spine (lower back). Reset your hips to the floor and then finally relax the tension in the band and repeat for 2 sets of 10.
