Previous Next 5 of 11 Golf stretches for your hips while seated

You can stretch your hips several ways. Try this seated stretch first:

  • Sit on a chair, low table or tee bench. Place your right ankle on top of your left thigh (image 1).
  • Push down on your right knee with your right forearm. Then lean forward at your waist until you feel a gentle stretch in your right hip (image 2).
  • Repeat the stretch on the opposite side.
