This exercise is called the Kneeling Chop [with the RMT Club]. This is going to add stability on your lower body and that mobility that you need in your upper body.

So what we're going to do is we're going to take the cross-handed grip, opposite of what you normally would, and you're going start from your left hip. You're going to drive the club up, just as if you're throwing something over your shoulder. You can use the audible feedback from the shot settling in the club to see when you get to that finished position. The other thing that we're going to do to get more shoulder mobility is we're going to wrap to the side with the weight in the leading hand. We're going to rotate the same motion, keeping that knee stable on the lower body and shoulders moving.

We're going to switch sides with this, so we're going to do both sides [for non-dominant side training]. Same exercise, keeping the knee stable and going into the cross-handed grip, we'll be going from the hip up. Feel that stopping of the shot in the club. We're going to take the cupping grip and do the same thing. You want to stay tall and make sure that you don't move your base and you get a full shoulder turn. It's a great exercise for more stability and more mobility in your upper body.
