Doddato maintains that the shoulders are the weakest area in the female body, which can lead to a “chicken wing” or lifting the club during the backswing.

Balance your stomach on a stability ball, spreading your legs in a V and keeping your toes on the ground. Grab weights of up to 3 pounds with each hand, and begin with your arms stretched toward the ground.
