Im going to start exercising again and wonder what kind of exercises i can do that are more golf specific/related? ive never exercised specifically just for golf. However, since im getting more into during this chapter of my life, i taught id look for golf related exercises/lifts.
Right now im completely out of shape, my only exercise is golf. Im 5'11 260, most people dont believe im 260 because of my wide shoulders and chest, they think maybe 210-220. I just gained 25 of those during my partners pregnancy. Im not sure what a good golf weight would be for me to play at. A little physical history: i grew up playing football, basketball, baseball, boxing, weightlifting, biking. Out of those my main sport was 15 years of baseball. I played baseball at 195-200, i boxed at 169-185, football at 210-215.
I havent been on a bike or lifted , hell i havent done any cardio/lifting in 3 1/2 years. When i was i was riding i'd do 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week and circuit training with weights 3x a week - 195 - 200 pounds was a good weight for this. i was focused on everyday strength in lifting, not being ripped or bulking - id generally do 8 reps and 3 sets on all lifts except for the bench; which was heavier weight/lower reps (except for the 8 rep warm up).
Now im planning on doing light cardio (walking/power walking) for awhile, at least the next 4-5 months until i drop some weight. I feel i need to be back at or around 220 before i start pounding my knees and ankles with heavier cardio such as jogging/running. My target weight loss goal is 2-3 pounds a week.
I no longer have a bike and i wont be getting one due to a new child and financial obligations. Nor do i have a gym membership., any lifting will have to be with house hold items, such as water buckets and weighted grocery bags. What kind of lifts/exercises can i do to help my golf game? Ill also be doing push ups/sit ups/ standing squats/lunges and a lot of stretching.
thanks for your help in advance
