    Please explain difference between glutes and femur and particularly their role in the proper golf swing. Also are the pelvis and hips one and the same. Thank you.

      Michael,

      Can you please re-post this question. I didn’t have Jeremy set as the Author so he will not receive notification. If you re-post it he will get it now.

    • Hi Michael,
      The glutes are your butt muscles and the femur is the thigh bone on each side. The glute muscles help move your femur bones in activities like walking, twisting and squatting. The pelvis is different than the hips. The pelvis is made up of two separate bones that you feel at your waist-line. The hips are the actual joints that connect your pelvis to the femur bones. I found a good picture online:

  3. Jeremy ,To work THE glutes ,I do what I call THE “SIDE LEG LIFT ” where I am on one side ,my hand and arm supporting my head ,and I lift highest possible THE opposite leg ,keep it there 15 seconds ,then put it back ,15 Times in a row ,3 sets .To make THE exercise tougher ,I strap weights 2 to 4 kilos on THE ankle and calve of THE leg at work .I do feel my glutes after this exercise !
    Any comments welcome !
    I’m sort of a maniac of gym exercises to keep fit and hit THE ball furthest possible at

  4. Hey Raymond,
    You mention a great exercise for the lateral glute… the glute medius and minimus especially. These are great muscles to keep from swaying and sliding. I’ve recently added a difficult twist to this exercise… point the toe up as you lift the leg and before you start to let it down again point your toe down and keep it pointing down as you lower the leg. This will strengthen and mobilize the internal and external rotators as you do the side leg lift. Remember to keep your hips and shoulders stacked vertical the entire time!

  5. Another great exercise ,Jeremy,for the glutes ! Does it benefit to strap on bracelet weights to the ankle or leg to toughen up the exercise ?

    Jeremy ,Don’t you have to keep the lifted leg up still for a few seconds for the exercise to be more effecive?
    You mention the glutes to be the most important muscles in the lower body for the efficient golf swing .
    What about the hamstrings and ,topmost ,those muscles responsible for the fast rotation of the hips ,I mean the lateral abdominals ?
    The fast “pivot “is the basis of PAUL WILSON’s teaching ,and it’s what should be trained the most

    Hello Jeremy, I recently joined IgnitionGolf and think Paul’s instructions are great! I am a 68 yo female and have taken up golf almost 2 years ago. Can you point me in the right direction to start on golf exercises bearing in mind my age and not so flexible. Many thanks. MJ
