Current goal is to get to 160 lbs (currently at 175, down from 195). Then, do a very gradual bulk up (200 or 300 calories over maintenance per day) to whatever I feel is good.   - 4 warm up sets of squats, ramping up to 225 - Squats 235 3x5 - Bench Press 160 3x5, one drop set of 135 1x7 - Pendlay Rows 160 3x5 - Close Grip Bench - 125 2x8 - Tricep extensions - 65 2x8 - As many chin-ups as possible (think I got to 15)
Lots of reps @ light weight = cardio, and does jack for any "core strength". Plus, "toning" is some silly word made up by fitness people trying to sell you a rubber band or something.   If you want to get stronger, the best way is a routine based around compound exercises at relatively low rep schemes like 5x3 or 5x5, 3 times a week. Compound exercises would be: Squat, deadlift, bench press, barbell row, and overhead presses (if your shoulders allow. Landmines are a...
Looks like more than 20 lbs to me. Somewhere closer to 30 from the looks it. Not sure how tall he is though, which is a factor. Plus, everyone stores extra weight a bit differently.   Whatever the case, good on him! You guys suggesting him dropping that gut is bad, must be kidding. Dude needs to get on some sort of weight training program though, pronto. I don't see any sort of muscle tone on him. Even a moderate, 3 days @ 45 min, weight training program will increase...
I'm within a month (hopefully!) of being able to play again, so I can safely talk about golf again without sobbing.   Like others have mentioned, it's all personal preference, and even the course you may be playing. Personally, I'd rather have a higher lofted option closer to the greens, than a club to fill a gap 220+. I'm not shooting darts at 225, but every inch counts when I have 30 feet to the pin, and no green to work with.
Depends on the day. In the afternoon after work, I'll make practice swings with two irons on the tee box, a couple practice driver swings, and off I go. On Saturday mornings with the boys, I'll play down and back #9 with a 50 degree wedge (No one is on it since we're first or second out), hit some pitches, putt for a little, and drive a shag ball into the woods.
Sorry to hear man. Same sort of thing happened to me a few years ago. The course was less than 2 miles from house, and was just closed one day. Always thought someone would buy it and re-open, but it's just overgrown now.
Most courses around here have Blue, White, Gold (sometimes), and Red. Once in a blue moon, if I'm up to it and the course is relatively empty, I'll play the blues. 98% of the time, I'm playing the whites. If I ever dip down under 10 or so, I'll consider moving back a set.   To take this a little bit OT, I see guys way worse than me playing the blues all the time. Guys who I would be surprised if they are shooting under 90 (or 100 even). In fact, when I played Monday...
 The Mizuno JPX wedges are cavity backed, and look pretty good. In fact, that's the 50 degree I have my eye on.
Most of the "players" sets of irons don't matching wedges. The Mizuno MP line only goes to PW, and I suspect that's the case for most other manufactures with their low-handicap targeted sets. Plus, you can have way more touch with traditional style wedges, than any that would match a set. Mostly, imo, because the faces are too hot for shots around the green. Personally, I'm inching closer and closer to dropping my matching Gap (50 degree) wedge for something with a less...
Voted 3 iron, but I'm pretty sure I could hit a 2 since my 3 is one of my favorite clubs to hit. Kinda crazy to write that, as I couldn't hit a 5 (or 6 for that matter) worth a shit just two years ago.
