Fitness: Body for Balance for Performance

David Ostrow, CEO of Body Balance for Performance, says this is oneof the best exercises for golfers. It develops the gluteal muscles, which comprise the buttocks. Strong glutes are necessary to provide stability and strength during a golf swing. Ostrow says this exercise can be performed by people with bad backs. 

1. Start with the feet and back flat on the floor.

2. Raise the buttocks to form a straight line across the chest to the knees.

3. Straighten a leg without allowing the back to dip toward the floor. Alternate legs.
