Neal Valera is a Strength Coach and Fitness Trainer and the co-founder of StickMobility. StickMobility is a custom-designed training stick which acts as a tool to improve range of motion, muscle activation, coordination, and body awareness for a strong physical foundation and better movement.
A former Division I golfer, Neal has an acute sense and knowledge of the physical requirements, and pitfalls, that golf presents. He joins #OntheMark to highlight those elements and help you to develop a better, stronger, more flexible body – a body that can withstand the muscular challenges the golf-swing presents; a body that is better primed for more consistent and powerful golf-swings.
He talks about various human muscle groups and how you can use StickMobility to target those to strengthen and improve them, loosen them up, and make them less injury-prone. Amongst others he targets the Shoulders, Upper Back, Mid-back, Lats, Lower Back, Hips (Hip Flexors) and Hamstrings.
