Gym Equipment For Golf: Bosu Ball

Mark Williamson, a.k.a. The Golf Yogi is back with a Back to the Gym Series. Basic exercises and stretches to keep us moving, gain back some mobility and ultimately play better golf.

What’s up, GolfersRx, Mark Williamson, The Golf Yogi here. I want to go through several things today with one of my favorite pieces of equipment in the gym. I use this with almost every client I work with. That’s a Bosu Ball for golf fitness.

Bosu Ball Golf Fitness

We’re going to set this Bosu ball on the flat side. I want your foot to be just inside of the dead center. We’re going to take a squat here. You see, when we go down, these hips are pretty off the plane, but the shoulders are trying to stay really square. I want you to feel like you’re giving a good drive off of this leg. Most important is driving down, trying to find the balance into this foot that’s up on the Bosu.

The benefit comes from the struggle, so don’t worry if they’re not perfect. Don’t worry if you’re flopping around a little bit; maybe play with 10 to 20 on each side and then switch it up.

The last one I’ve got for you with the Bosu ball is we’re going to flip it to the other side if you’ve never played around with a Bosu Ball for golf fitness before; they’re not really stable. As you can tell, they kind of flop all over the place.

These are basically just step-ups. There’s a little circle that you can see right in the middle of the ball. We want to make sure our foot’s right in there. Take a nice big deep bend into this front knee, and all we’re going to do is drive up a little. Hold. Right-back down. Drive up in a little, hold, right back down from the side.

The more we can drive those feet into the ground, the more power we’re going to produce. So grab a Bosu ball the next time you’re at the gym and give these a shot. Hopefully, you’re going to work on a little bit of balance, a little bit of drive, hopefully, play a little bit better golf.
