Three Forearm Twist Exercises From Professional Golfers
For any professional or amateur golfer, it is necessary to maintain a good grip on your golf club so that you can hit the ball further. And strong forearm muscles are necessary to maintain this good grip. So it is important to strengthen your forearms if you want to improve your golf skills. The following are three forearm twist exercises by professional golfers to help strengthen your grip:
This exercise is also called the Pronation and Supination twist and you must twist your forearm in such a way that you rotate your palm to face the ground.
- In order to do this, first pick up a dumbbell or hardcover book that weighs three pounds with your left hand and stand up.
- Now you must bend your elbow to a 90 degree angle so that you are holding the object with your fingers parallel to the wall.
- Now you must rotate your forearm in such a way that your palm faces the ground.
- Keep it in this position for five seconds and then rotate your forearm 180 degrees.
- Again hold for five seconds and repeat.
- You should complete three sets of rotations for each arm so that your arm muscles are completely strengthened.
In this exercise, use a wet towel but ensure that it is not dripping.
- Firstly you must roll the towel in the form of a log and then grip it with both hands.
- Wring the water out by moving your left hand towards your body and your right hand away from your body. Hold for 60 seconds.
- Then squeeze and twist the towel in the opposite direction and repeat.
- Keep doing this until all the water has been drained out from your towel.
You will be strengthening the brachio-radialis muscles in your forearm that extend just below the elbow.
- You have to be seated in this exercise and must bend your knees at a 90 degree angle.
- Hold two dumbbells in each hand in such a manner that each one faces the ceiling.
- Your knuckles must be facing the wall.
- You must now bend your elbows at a 90 degree angle. Make sure that your forearms touch the top of your thighs.
- Now you must twist both your forearms to the right for five seconds.
- Then bring your arms back to the center.
- Now twist both your forearms to the left for five seconds and repeat.
- You should do a set of 16 seated forearm twists.
