Golf Season Is Here! Is your upper back ready?
Written by: Sasha Guay, Registered Physiotherapist, MSc(PT)
Here are a few variations of dynamic upper back mobility drills that you can do before your game to warm up your thoracic spine to maximize your mobility, decrease chance of injury and optimize your swing. Perform each for 60 seconds per side and make sure to not push into pain.
