As a teenager, I grew up in South Africa idolizing Gary Player, as Roger Fredericks did in the USA. 

Gary Player is still the greatest golfer South Africa has ever produced, and his beliefs in Golf Flexibility, Strength, and Nutrition are legendary.  He has been a great inspiration to me, and I adhere to the same beliefs myself.  Listen as both Roger and Gary endorse each other with equal enthusiasm!

As a kid growing up in junior golf, Gary Player was always my favorite player, and it was during the 1997 Kaanapali Senior Classic at my golf school, that Graham Marsh (whom I had been working with for a couple of years) brought Gary over to have me video tape his swing and give him my thoughts. Needless to say, I almost fell off my chair. After I gathered myself, I began video-taping his swing and the process began.

When it comes to stretching for golf, Roger Fredericks is one of the world’s leading people. 

He has collaborated with the top sportsman and women to truly understand the human form and how to get the most out of your daily stretching routine.  I read every article that Roger ever writes, and here he explains why some stretches don’t work.  When I saw his headline, I knew I had to share because this statement has plagued me for years.  Finally, I now understand why my stretching routines were futile and not getting the results I was looking for.  Roger explains “chains,” and if you want to improve your stretching, you had better know what they mean!

Why Stretching a muscle…….Doesn’t always stretch the muscle.

By Roger Fredericks

“Hey Roger, I don’t get it? I’ve been stretching my hamstrings for years, and they‘re still tight. Even when I was a kid, I couldn’t touch my toes and I still can’t!”

If I had $10 for every time I’ve heard that, or something similar, I’d be in a considerably higher tax bracket!

The truth is that many people think that by stretching a particular muscle is going to get that muscle flexible – especially the hamstrings. However, that usually isn’t the case. Remember, that muscles work in ‘Chains’ ( much like tile on a roof) and they all run and work together. Therefore, when one aspect of the chain is tight, other muscles in that chain are apt to be tight as well.

For example, whenever I see a tight upper back and shoulder (which is becoming epidemic in our culture), I’ll see a tight calf just about every time. When I see this condition, I’ll usually go to work on their calves and work up the chain and finally get to their upper back. My Clients are always amazed at how their shoulders are feeling better when I often times don’t even touch them!

Regarding golf, many people struggle with straightening of their legs in their golf swings, and upon recognizing that they’re hamstrings are tight, will begin feverishly stretching their hamstrings – and as I mentioned – usually don’t get acceptable results. The reality is that the hamstrings work closely with the Inner thigh muscles – Outer thighs, Quadriceps- Hip flexors and Glutes – and ‘Especially’ The Pelvic Flexors and Extensors. All of the programs in my book ‘The Flexible Golf Swing’ and my DVD ‘Secrets of Golf Swing Flexibility’ are arranged so that you’ll be working ALL of the muscles in their respective chains.

Posture is a key element of the golf swing. 

Because you rotate around your spine, a straight back in the address position is very important.  If your posture is poor and your back is rounded at the address position, you are doomed before starting your backswing!

Roger Fredericks Two Easy Exercises for C-Curve Posture.

Fortunately, we have Roger Fredericks, golf flexibility expert, to show us the correct way to improve our posture, not only for our all-important golf swing but also for a pain-free back in our everyday lives! Click on the link below for Roger’s expert advice.

In my experience, I’ve come to believe that over 80% of generic back problems are due to tight and imbalanced hip muscles. When the muscles around the pelvic girdle tighten and shorten, the hip girdle changes it’s tilt, the spine changes it’s curve, and the entire body begins to compensate, causing friction on the spine – and other joints. In time, the friction of the joints cause deterioration …then pain.

When the muscles around the pelvis are compromised, we’ll see either a). Forward Tilt, b). Under Tilt, or c). Rotated or Elevated – so that one side of the hip is either forward or higher than the other. In either case, when the muscles around the pelvis remain imbalanced, there’s usually discomfort.

This week, I’m giving you two simple exercises that will help people with C Curve Posture or Under position.

This posture type is common among our elderly and in regards to golf, is nearly always a sign of instability in the lower body. Just like a boat that isn’t anchored will usually drift away, when the lower body doesn’t stabilize in the golf swing, the upper body and arms will tend to flail around.

TOWEL SEQUENCE 1 & 2 by Roger Fredericks

I encourage you to determine what posture type you are, then select the Posture DVD that fits your Posture Type and get on the full program.

Remember…..GET STRAIGHT……THEN STRENGTHEN!
