Easy Test for a Dysfunctional Pelvis

The pelvic rotation test will tell you whether or not you have control over your pelvis.  A dysfunctional pelvis can lead to a loss of power and performance; stiffness; and hip, ab, knee, ankle and back pain among other things. This is one of the tests I learned in my Titleist Performance Institute certification and your personal results may be surprising.

The test is easy. Watch the video below and see if you can move your lower body like the demonstrator. If you wave side to side, can’t rotate or your upper body moves, you failed.

Thank you to the cameraman, trainer and demonstrator for an excellent video 🙂

If you passed, GREAT!

If you failed, it’s time to get to work. Practice mimicing this rotation every day for 2-3 minutes until you get it. Holding on to a door frame to keep your upper body still can help.

If you master this, you will be one step closer to unlocking your body’s total body potential and cranking up your ability to lose weight, get strong, move quickly and balance well.

In Good Health,

Nate
