    The TYIW exercise is a wonderful execise for “rounded “backs like mine .
    Doing it with the golf club touching the wall and against it is near to impossible for me :I have the left shoulder which hurts when I do so ,probably arthrosis or a damaged rotator
    This limitation is also bad for my backswing ,I can’t lift the left arm as much as I should
    I stretch the rotators by pulling the arm across the body at right angles with the help of the opposite arm,I also pull the forearm behind my neck ,downwards ,with the help of the other arm

    • Hi Raymond,
      That is correct… stop when you feel pain. Most likely there’s some sort of impingement occurring overhead during the exercise. Try to modify the angle to diminish the discomfort. Sometimes warming up before hand with some “arm hangs” and “arm swings” are helpful for such issues.

    This is one of the critical tests to pass of ROGER FREDERICKS as described in his book “FLEXIBLE GOLF “.
    As PAUL WILSON and yourself, he contends rightly you can’t play good golf and have the proper “positions ” if you are not flexible enough.
    The problem is that you also have to be strong in those muscles which propell the swing movement :difficult to be strong and flexible at the same time (At least for an old guy like me )
    I amazed by the flexibilty of JAMIE SADLOWSKI and JOHN DALY ,despite the latter’s stature..;

    I like this one! I like the letters for reference too. It’s good for my graphic memory.
    I can get my back and had flat against the wall. Nothing hurt, but shoulders and biceps were a little tight. i’ll try to do this every other day until everything is nice and loose.
    A good stretch and strengthening exercise.

    • Thanks! This is a great ‘daily’ exercise (unless of course you’re sore) because of the postural endurance and anterior mobility needed to make a true difference. Moderate intensity (not maximal) and daily… good combo.
