About 1.5 miles at just under a 9:00 pace. I haven't used my watch much lately so I hit the wrong buttons a few times and then the battery died. Who knows what data it spit out.

Question - do arm workouts with weights and free weights, kettle bells, etc, screw up  your game if you play later in the day?

 

They've done it to me. lol. Had an arms workout and went to the range an hour later. Could not hit anything below a sand wedge off the turf without plowing fields. The day before, everything was pure. After a workout, the arms were jelly-like. Guess it's a silly question. It had an effect.

Depends on the workout really, if your pushing yourself to that much fatigue, that is counterproductive if your going to golf later in the day. Though i have done that before and end up alright, usually after 4-5 hours my arms are usuable for a round of golf.

i don't do many isolated arm workouts anymore (freeweight curls, etc), but i sometimes find that my harder leg days hurt my range sessions a bit (longer than a 10k run for example)

 

i also feel like kettle bells have helped my game immensely in terms of hip action/downswing sequence.......even after a workout involving swings/cleans/snatches i still feel pretty good on the range

i actually had the opposite happen. my triceps were killing me and my chest and elbow pits were tight, but it made me not get as much arm action as i normally might have gotten. swinging also helped me stretch everything back out.

Quick update.  Still going 3 x a week.  Not been posting them up.  Try to remember this month to get back on here.  I saw the ? about being tight and playing the same day after working out.  I have actually come to like it.  The tight feeling really makes me feel "connected"  As long as my hip flexors feel loose, I think it helps.  

 

Yesterday.  

3x12 Straight arm sit ups with db Kettle bells (26s, 35s) 

 

Then 10 rounds of the following. 

 

Double clean

Double Thruster

Double Squat

Double Push Press

That = 1 rep and do 5 reps per round.  1 min rest in between rounds. 10 rounds total. 

 

35s and 44s were my weights and I bumped up halfway thru.

P90X chest and back, ab ripper X early this morning. Feel like i got f***ed by a train. Good grief, I'm outta shape.

Thought I'd chip in. Some great routines on here. 

 

My standard one, generally twice a week, with some isolation training one or two days in between. 

 

60 push ups

25 squats - 60 kgs (132lbs)

25 deadlifts - 60kgs

25 floorwipers - 20kg KB (44lbs)

20 seated side trunk twists legs raised L+R 20kg KB

30 KB swings 20kgs

15 one armed swings 20kgs L+R

15 KB windmills L+R 20kgs

20 KB figure 8's 20kgs 

10 KB presses L+R 20kgs

15 KB one arm rows L+R 20kgs

15 one arm side laterals 6kg (13lbs)

15 KB snatches L+R 20kgs

15 KB skull crushers (I've heard them called this) basically a tricep excercise, like shooting a basketball from a lying position with KB, obviously not letting go of it.

 

Tend to get it done in about 25 minutes. Need to do more stretching, hate it but my hips get very tight after hitting a lot of balls.

So back in January I got fed up with being 5' 6 3/4" and 237 lbs. My wife and I joined a gym, I started to change my eating habits, and in February took up golf again. I didn't realize at the time that I would be where I'm at today. I weighed in at 205 yesterday and this past week and the guy that manages our gym has said he will help me "train" for golf fitness. I told him of my hopes and plans for possibly competing and hopefully contending in some of the more popular state am tournaments. He's on board with helping me. We have a year to get me physically ready and to get my golf game to a solid state. This past week I've gone everyday and done at least 25 minutes/ 2 miles on an eliptical machine. I've also been to the driving range more. This next week I'll being a exercise routine specific for golf as well as some yoga. I'm enthusiastic about it.
