Core-Tex Golf: Loss of Posture - Titleist Performance Institute

Shoulder and hip separation

✅ Core stability

✅ Core strength

These are not just fundamental athletic requirements; they are also healthy life requirements.

Every sport that does not involve sitting down requires the ability to create disassociation (separation) between the upper extremities and hips. With Core-Tex, we use the terminology “coil and uncoil”.  This is how the soft tissue of the body is able to store and release energy in the form of movement. The efficient body even does this with every step we take while walking.

To do this effectively, the body’s core must be both stable and strong because it is the link between the upper and lower aspects of the body. The stability applies to the necessary control and protection of the lower back and hips. While the strength relates to the amount of force that can be expressed. The body must meet these needs in all 3 dimensions of space.

Technical sports such as golf can highlight “weak links” in our movement efficiency. In this video, Core-Tex Master Trainer, Ken Miller M.S., a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Level 3 Fitness Pro addresses what TPI classifies as “Loss of Posture”- one of their Big 12 Swing Characteristics.

After a quick overview of the swing characteristic, Ken provides 3 key Core-Tex exercises that he uses with his professional, collegiate and amateur golfers to address their bio-mechanical needs associated with Loss of Posture.  But these exercises aren’t just for golf, they are great for anyone.
