The first common mistake is turning the hips without moving the weight laterally. Many times, this is due to a lack of strength and flexibility. Even if you are stretching before every round of golf, this is not doing much to improve your overall flexibility. Daily exercise is the only way to do this. You do not have to hit the gym for hours on end or buy a bunch of expensive equipment to improve your overall level of being in shape and having flexibility. To increase flexibility in the hips and elsewhere in the body, you need to warm your muscles. Begin by stretching your major muscle groups a few times. Ten gentle reps for the backs of your legs, fronts of your legs, sides, back, shoulders and arms is sufficient. Then do about 20 minutes of light to medium cardiovascular exercise. Walking, riding an exercise bike, swimming, rowing and jogging are all good cardiovascular exercises. Then your muscles are sufficiently warmed, and you can begin to improve your flexibility. Stretch the same muscle groups you did before exercising, but this time pull until you reach the verge of pain. Hold the stretch for 20 seconds. Repeat each stretch, holding for 20 seconds, five times each. This does not just stretch your muscles for a brief period of time, such as before executing your golf downswing, it improves your overall flexibility and will continue to do so as long as you continue the stretching exercises. The cardiovascular workout also helps to improve your overall level of fitness. The second common flaw in the golf downswing is the tendency to turn the right shoulder down towards the ball as the weight is shifted improperly. As you increase muscle strength and flexibility, it will be easier for you to control this movement. Also, regular controlled exercises help you to be more aware of your specific muscles - where they are and what they are doing. We are sometimes completely unaware of what specific muscles are doing when we are concentrating on hitting the ball with Cheap Golf Clubs . The last common mistake during the downswing is trying to move the club head and slowing the hands down. Again, awareness of what your muscles are doing is the first step in the right direction for correcting these mistakes.
