Exercise Plan Suggestions


Recommended Posts

Hi.  I've turned the spare room into a gym since my son moved out and wondered if anyone with far more knowledge than me would be able to come up with an exercise plan for me.

I have the following in there:- Ecercise bike, rowing machine, manual treadmill and a weight bench (pic below).  Also the wondercore thing for crunches made easy.  I'm slowly trying to build up doing 5 minutes cardio then a set of each weights doing ten, then repeat with different cardio, weights etc.

Thanks.

What are you goals? General fitness? Golf specific? We would need more to go on. Folks here will help.

Ultimately to hit the ball further but after a few health problems and severe weight loss I need to build the general fitness and strength.  At times my weight drops to 9st which is shocking for a 6ft bloe albeit a slight build.  I've also got nerve damage in my left shoudler/neck that the doctors can do nothing about so there is 3cm muscle wasteage between my left arm and right arm (from wrist to top of the arm).  I've also previously slipped a disc on my sciatic nerve so balance is poor too.

In general and it's only recent I know but I'v been managing the 5 minutes cardio, weights then repeat two or 3 times ok.

I also have the resistance bands too and stretch/neck exercises on a daily basis.

Given your physical ailments, I’d say consult a doctor and a trainer about a fitness regimen that will work for you instead of the internet.

I agree with @billchao. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist first. There a lots of simple exercises that you can to to improve core strength that will help your swing. Tell your Dr or PT your goals.

Yep way beyond recommendations from us. Go see a Pro. Ideally one who understands your health AND golf to give you guidance.

If you have this level of physical issues and weight loss. Getting a general strength program will give you better distance, likely.

Check out startingstrength.com or read the Barbell Prescription - tons of info on the benefits of strength training over "exercise".

Just pointing someone with the OP’s history of physical problems to workout programs is bad advice IMO. There are plenty of members here who have a good understanding of exercise and fitness, but there’s a reason nobody has suggested any routines for him to do.

    • I have been thinking of this for a bit now and it happened to me yesterday, where I hit only 2 of 4 par-5s in regulation.   I am not sure what a realistic expectation for me should be.  I feel I should be able to make routine pars on these, or at least routine GIRs.  I try (I am not always successful, but I generally try) to not go for a pin from outside of 80 yards, focusing instead on getting on the green.  But even with that, maybe I should think more about what a realistic expectation for me on a par-5 is. I am always happy with a GIR.  Yesterday I hit 6 GIR, I don't think I was inside 25 feet on any of them, and I played those six holes in a total of +1.  I think that's a pretty good outcome for 6 GIRs, especially since I didn't make any of the birdie putts (which, again, were all low probability anyway).  
    • I saw that, I wish it was more tailored towards older teens than kids. It might be more as a cartoon style over an anime style. I will probably check it out.  FFIX is my 2nd favorite FF games I have played.  1. FFXII 2. FFIX 3. FFX 4. FFVII Remake 5. FFXV 6. FFVII 7. FFVIII I just like FFXII for the combat system, and the characters. I think it is overlooked in the FF series. It wasn't ground breaking, but just very good. I enjoyed playing that series the most. 
    • This is in the definitions in the Rules, and its Nearest Point of Complete Relief.  Your second paragraph is reasonably accurate, although you should generally look at COMPLETE relief to either side of the path, and determine which potential Reference point is closer to the original position of the ball..  Diagram 16.1a shows this pretty clearly. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=16 The underlined portion of your post is generally wrong

    • So I’m trying to find the definition but nowhere does it state if that’s measuring where the ball will be dropped or where the stance is.    I always assumed that it is the ball position that is measured. So let’s say there is a cart path running down the center of the fairway directly at the flag. That would mean that if the ball in on the left ~ 2/3s of the path the ball would be dropped left for a rigthy and if it’s on the right 1/3rd on the right side.    Because I have been told that you basically always look for the middle of the path and then drop on whatever side the ball is on. And for really narrow obstructions like ground under repair it would almost always be on the left side of it (or behind) and almost never on the right?
