What exercises help golfers with core strength?

The core refers to all muscles that attach to the lumbo-pelvic hip complex. In addition to flexion exercises such as the crunch or leg lift, athletes should be sure to train the back side of the body. Back extension over a stability ball, stability ball cobra, and table-top opposite arm-leg lifts are important exercises for postural control and core stability. Golf has a significant rotational demand, so training the oblique muscles is also important. Exercises such as the Russian twist, half-kneeling cable chop, or cable rotation can help with rotational control and strength.
