This is a great exercise for your shoulders and for improving your upper body strength.

The use of a kettlebell forces the shoulder to externally rotate. We need to rotate our shoulder in the backswing to set the club-head in position, and also in the downswing in order to create power and speed.

Shoulder stability is also important for keeping the correct posture throughout your swing.



Start with a weight that allows you to perform 6-8 reps on each arm in one set. If you lean backwards lower the weight or rest before the next set.
