The squat is a natural human function — and a go-to exercise in any strength training regimen. For golfers, squatting offers a way to prolong your playing days while improving performance. You are effectively using your bodyweight to strengthen your core and leg muscles, adding explosiveness and flexibility to your game.
The width of the stance varies by person, but your feet should be approximately shoulder-width apart. Your entire foot should be engaged with the ground throughout the movement. With your torso upright and your spine straight, ease into a sitting position, keeping your knees directly over your feet. Then drive upward out of that stance. The lower you can drop your hips, the better the squat. For a couple of variations, try jumping when you come out of the squat position, and then work on adding a rotational twist to the jump squat.
