That's the same as what I do.  I typically lift M, T, Th & Friday.  But my club events are typically on Saturday.  So if I have a club event that Saturday, I'll lift M, T, W & Thur and only do cardio on Friday.  Just kinda curious if anybody does something different (like lift heavy the day of or before an event).

Don't really compete much, but I found out that Saturday rounds (Fridays are heavy) seem to be my best rounds.  Something about the tightness really makes me feel connected?  Everything seems like a half swing and for me that is a really good thing that I can't seem to duplicate when "loose".  Especially if any type of Farmer walks or lunges took place the day before.  


That being said, Didn't work out once this week.  Bronchial infection, Z-pack needed, Inhaler, bummed.  Saw a new Dr.  After 8 months of sort of being off Paleo, I am going back on next week full bore.  Reviewing my health as of late, I am one of those that need it.  Auto Immune system is out of whack and I am feeling the results.  Gonna suck for a while, but I am ditching eggs, and nuts as well. Weather is finally nice, and I am sick of being sick.  


LeftyGolfer, CONGRATULATIONS!  Nice to hit a goal.  Good for you.

Ran about 3 miles on elliptical
Combo of

After 5 moths of gym , besides losing the 12 lbs of Fat ( my abds turning from from 1 pack to 6 packs ) , gaining some muscle and toned up, finally the workout is working well with my golf game.

I still have not gain more distance yet but the endurance , flexibility and core strength allow me to hit my ball better .

I've been getting back into the gym over the last month.  Feels great and I'm starting to see some results!  Today, I did 25 minutes of cardio... 20 mins on the stair climber and 5 mins on the tread before I did an hour of BodyPump. I'm happy to say that I can now fit back into my 31's without issue.
