Working with Duffy Golf Fitness in Great Britain

Chris Poulin’s recent trip to St. Andrews, Scottland was more for work than pleasure, although he would probably claim both.

Chris has been consulting with Duffy Golf Fitness and helping them integrate the concepts of Postural Restoration in the training and reconditioning of their athletes.  Staying competitive in professional golf means to be sure that your body is working correctly for you.  Postural restoration is being utilized to do just that for these talented group of players.

Most Golfers Need This Exercise

Most of my golfers need this exercise regardless of their ability level.  The “Unresisted Wall Reach” is an exercise example to help golfers who struggle with maintaining their spine angle in their backswing.

Spine angle is the angle between the thighs and the back (generally about 110-130°).  It is a key factor in enabling you to turn efficiently, and to swing powerfully and consistently, while protecting your back and avoiding back pain and injury.

Remember, as with all postural behavior exercises, it is important that this exercise is performed under the direction of a trained clinician.
