An August 16, 2014 full-page column by renowned Wall Street Journal golf writer John Paul Newport cited the concern by tour great Tom Watson that the current rash of golf injuries among the pros may be coming from lifting weights in the gym.

As these fibers repair, they do get bigger and stronger, but the scar tissue makes golfer stiffer in their hips."

When the hips lose flexibility, they stop prematurely after impact, while the upper body continues to rotate, holding on to a club going 100 mph. All the stress created by the restricted hips goes in to the lower back.

This is why Somax developed the Power Hip Trainer as a safe alternative to lifting weights. The moderate resistance of the steel spring at the base of the hip trainer does not create any scar tissue while it increases the strength of the muscles that rotate the hips.

Since squats, lunges, dead lifts and leg presses do not involve hip rotation, the hip rotation muscles are not strengthened by lifting weights.

Due to the 1:25 ratio of the distance of the hip joints to the center of rotation and the 75" distance of the club head to the center of rotation, every increase in hip
