Unorthodox. That’s probably the most accurate way of describing Miguel Angel Jimenez’ warm-up routine.

However, there’s method to the apparent madness. Here are the benefits of limbering up like the man himself.

Move 1


Loosen up those glutes, calves and hamstrings. Place your feet the length of a long-iron apart and, holding two clubs above your head for stability, slowly squat down into a ‘sitting’ position. Repeat up to five times.

Move 2

Miguel1

Keeping your feet a club-length apart, slowly lean forward as far as you can until your chest is almost parallel to the ground. Again, use two clubs for stability. Repeat up to five times.

Move 3

Miguel3

With your feet tight together, place one hand on your knees and rotate them in a 360˚ movement, stabilising yourself with your opposite hand resting on golf clubs. Repeat both clockwise and anti-clockwise up to dozen times, before swapping hands.

Move 4

Miguel4

Get those shoulders and your core nice and loose by completing half a dozen slow, wide swings, gripping two long irons simultaneously. Place your feet much further apart than usual to complete this move and don’t worry about swing ‘technique’ - you’re just looking to get loose and limber.

Move 5

Miguel5

Grip two long irons above the hosel and, holding the clubs out in front of you, slowly twist them 180˚ up to a dozen times. Do this with each hand to get your forearms and wrists nice and supple, ready for the first shot of the day.
