Butt Cheek Golf

Butt Check Golf 00The “butt cheek” muscles are some of the most important muscles in a golf swing.

Without understanding how to use your “glutes” properly, you will struggle with “consistency” your entire golfing life.

The “glutes” are one of largest, most powerful “muscle” groups in the body.

The gluteal muscle group (the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus) are strong “hip extensors and flexors.”

Strong glutes muscles assist your golf swing by “stabilizing” the hips in golf posture. This allows “power and club head speed” to begin in your legs and transfer to the core muscles as you begin the “downswing, continuing into impact and turning and rotating” into the follow-through.

Here is a video of Ben Hogan revealing his clenched “butt cheeks” to stabilize the pelvis, and thus his torso and arms, at impact.

Doing “butt cheeks” squeezes correctly will improve your “swing” quality and impact.

See you at the first tee…
