After a fairly weak effort on Monday that involved nothing more than 45 minutes on an exercise bike (while I was reading a book), I did a bit better last night. Leg presses, machine-aided squats, calf extensions, leg extensions, leg curls and glutes. Then 15-minutes on the eliptical at a good pace. 

Now the key is to not be bad during my non-gym, Thursday night.

I've stuck with it everyday since the 21st.  It's been a little difficult while having to take caution with the knee, but it's also allowed me to focus on other areas that I can tend to neglect... e.g. core, flexibility

On day 5 now. 30 minutes every morning. Mason twists, steam engines, abdominal crunches, raised abdominal crunches, planking, side planking, supermans, windmills and a couple others. I'm using the SWORKIT app in my iPhone. Hopefully I can stick to it.

I do various things for my fitness and now that I'm more into golf (and not wrecking my game in the weight room) I am trying different things golf-related. Thought I'd pass on that I'm enjoying a certain exercise in the gym called the "sideways heisman". Might just be called "heisman". It's basically a lunge up on a step, lifting your knee very high while turning your shoulders far toward the leg being lifted. I do it with an 8 or 10 pound medicine ball, arms stretched straight out. Very good exercise that seems to have played a role in my improvement with the club in my hands.

Thoracic mobility with deep torso strength exercises.  This includes lower core stability functional movement combine with kettle bell swings, squats, and timed sequenced golf swings.  I like to also throw in some TRX, towel, and band work.

Final stretch of training for my first Half-Marathon. May 21st...

So running, running, and more running. Dropped down from 180 to about 157 so far. In the past 12 weeks, I'll have almost 200 miles in by race day.

That's a lot of dropped weight. Good luck with the race. Please let us know how you do.


I've been working out for about a month now. My wife and I joined a local gym that opened recently in the small town where we live. The gym is unsupervised so we punch in a code to get in and while my wife does her cardio, I'll alternate between lower and upper body workouts, three nights per week.

I have no idea what I'm doing. Just trying to keep the resistance on the light side and do the reps slower until I get to failure. I guess the main purpose is to try and keep my joints and tendons in shape while at the same time trying to regain some lost strength. Would be nice if I could lose a few pounds as well, but I think our diet needs a complete overhaul for that to happen.

Anyway, it feels good to get back into this with a bit more ambition than I've had over the last couple... decades.

We have a big planter box at edge of our front yard facing street. It has been looking a little haggard so I cleaned up the plants and then put down 800 lbs of topsoil and ten bags of red mulch (took two trips in SUV to Home Depot).  Probably sweated out a gallon but it looks better. Wife was happy.

Very cool getting into it for the first time. Just watch a lot of youtube videos...if you find the AthleanX videos, Jeff is very knowledgable and may be able to help you out.

Race went very well. Ended up running 13.51 miles, in 1:54:43...so an 8:30 miles pace. My main goal was under 2 hours, with a secondary goal of 1:55. So I JUST barely beat it!

    • I’ll always have a better chance at match play over stroke play. When I fire a snowman, I’m pretty much done. But in match play it’s just one hole.😃
    • Day 616 or so: Practiced twice today. First I the morning then in the afternoon after I got back my Evolvr lesson.
    • Practiced twice today. First I worked on some pieces and I didn’t like what I saw in the video. Then, I got my Evolvr lesson back from @iacas and he gave me another feel and idea to work on. Basically, it’s a combination of palmar flexion at the top and forearm rotation to impact. The later is what I am having trouble with. They are somewhat independent. Erik talked about drawing a line through my wrist through the radius and ulna and seeing how it should rotate through impact. So, because I’m a nerd, I took a chopstick and wrist brace and made a training aid so I could see the rotation. It’s not exactly the right angle, but it’s close. I also should really feel like I’m swinging straight down from the top and have the club head drop back behind me while I palmar flex. Here is a 6 iron below. I didn’t swing much faster in any of my practice swings. The pool noodle is there to make me swing out more and not pull the grip left through impact.   Here is the driver. Down the line views.  I only did these mapping swings today. Tomorrow, if the mapping looks okay, I will move onto slow full swings.
    • They must have heard me whining.. lol.
    • I bought a sleeve of Taylormade Tour Response with the large green stripe.  I like them, and the way I’ve seen people line up putts is to line the big green stripe 90 degrees to where they are aiming, so unlike the triple track or single line guides that point at your line, it’s the other way. I’ve started doing that with any ball now, even lining up off the tee.   Generally I play Titleist ProV1 regular or X, with some TP5 and Chrome Soft Triple Track thrown in
