One of the most important movements in golf is the squat position.  You set up in a squat position at address position and then you want to maintain that squat throughout the swing.  As you approach impact, you use the energy that has been stored up from loading into your squat to transfer to the ball as you push off the ground and shift your weight towards the target. Improving your squat will improve your power.

Watch Karen Palacios-Jansen demonstrate this exercise.

To squat properly, you need leg strength.  Leg strength will also help you transfer body weight onto the lead leg and to extend the hips up through impact.  This move creates a tremendous amount of force to help create power.

Squats are also a versatile exercise. They can be done almost anywhere.  Doing squats can also increase joint flexibility and engage the core.

Squats are important for golf and overall strength in legs, glute muscles and core.

Squats
  1. Standing in shoulder width stance, using a club as balance.
  2. Squat down as you keep your arms extended.
  3. Keep your spine relatively straight as you maintain your knees over your toes.
  4. Try to squat down so that your thighs are parallel to the ground.
  5. Return to the start position and repeat motion for 8 to 10 repetitions.
