03-04: THE SELF-TEST: LY­ING LEST

New Zealand Golf Magazine - - PGA OF NZ -

∙ Lie on your back with your knees bent but soles of the feet on the floor.

∙ Your lower back should be flat on the ground

∙ Raise both arms straight above your ch­est.

∙ Slowly move the arms above your head un­til you feel any dis­com­fort in the shoul­ders and/or your lower back starts to rise of the ground.

∙ A good test should see you be able to touch the ground above your head with your hands without any dis­com­fort and the back still flat on the ground. (Pic 3)

∙ A failed test would see the golfer be un­able to get their arms past their ears due to re­stric­tion or the lower back coming off the ground. (Pic 4)
