D1 Extension – Rotation

  • HOW: Anchor a band at shoulder height or higher. Grab onto the band with your outside arm, the anchor should be to your side. Have a slight bend in your knees. Begin with the outside arm up and across your chest holding onto the band. From here, use your hips to initiate the diagonal pull down of the band ending with your hand by your outside pocket. This motion should be a quick, all-in-one fluid motion that mimics the first part of your swing. 
  • FEEL: You should feel your tricep and shoulder muscles working while pulling the band. You will also feel your core and hip muscles working during the rotation. 
  • COMPENSATION: Make sure to use your hips to help rotate your upper body, don’t use only your upper half to pull the band down.
