I currently lift weights three times a week. I've been trying to include some squats and deadlifts again, but my lower back isn't too happy with it. I'll do something else for legs for now and get an appointment with a PT at the centre to see if they got any useful input.

I've been throwing around a kettle bell for about a half hour every couple days for a pretty nice workout.  Simple stuff like cleans, overhead presses, and squats.  I look up some new moves every once in awhile.  Nice core, cardio, and full body workout.

Nice workout

Played tennis with my brother at a pretty high intensity for around an hour or so. Then after some cleaning did some core work and calisthenics followed by a 40 minute stretch session then some foam rolling.

Tried for 75 miles, got out late, neighbor talked ear off, finally got out, flat at mile 50, forgot to eat along the way, bonked, probably 8 miles short, didn't record whole ride on gps, privacy and all that. Based on the little riding that I actually do, if almost 70 miles is doable forgetting to eat halfway, may be possible to do that century in the fall. Just need to remember to take in those calories at mile 30, 40.

I love reading back to the end of 2014 ITT when @Slice of Life, @mvmac, and others were helping me get started with fitness.

Injured my lower back earlier this year but the last 2.5 years I've been committed to lifting weights and my diet (last 6 months of 2015 I gained back pretty much all the weight I had lost in the beginning of that year).  That said, after getting down to a little over 185 in January of this year, I spent 6 months in a caloric surplus and now back to cutting (at 206 presently) but while in the surplus I hit some nice marks for my working weight from where I started. 

  • Bench: 185 
  • Squat: 260
  • Overhead Press: 115
  • Deadlift: 335

Anyway, onward and upward!

Maybe your back is trying to tell you something

Which was why I went to a sports doctor, got a diagnosis, am doing physical therapy to treat the condition, and following doctor's orders which didn't include to stop lifting.

Those numbers look awesome! 

Great progress over the past couple/few years. Are those 1RM numbers or for reps?

Reps. I primarily do 3 sets in the 4-6 rep range.

Not bad! You might pass me up soon lol

 

After a long lifting hiatus, I'm back. But no strength gains, because I had too much fat to lose. Did get 225 up for a relatively easy rep today. But probably wouldn't have gotten a 2nd one up haha

Thanks!  Dare to dream. ;-)

Yeah, I have an uneven end to my bulk where I had my mom and uncle visit me for my graduation from grad school and staying with me for five weeks which entailed a lot of eating out which, when combined with a crazy work schedule put me between 22%-25% body fat at which point I began my cut on July 1st which, overall nutrition-wise, this weekend notwithstanding, has gone very well as I'm down roughly 10 pounds over those 5 weeks.

    • I didn’t read the initial guidance (thought it might be a spoiler!) and just looked at it from a mathy perspective. If I am playing others with very comparable skill levels and have a 50% chance of winning each match, 7 rounds of match play (0.5 ^ 7) is equivalent to 1/128 so I called it equal chances for same-sized field. So a smaller field for match play would tilt odds in that side’s favor.
    • Thanks for creating this thread @iacas. I’m nearly done with a first read of the book. Just starting the Mental Game section. I’m a big fan of Jon Sherman and Practical Golf. I also listen to The Sweet Spot podcast and appreciate what he and Adam are adding to the community.  My initial take: about 80% of what is covered in this book is in Lowest Score Wins. And in many cases, LSW covers it more effectively by giving succinct actionable advice. There’s a theme and flow that both books use: Use information at hand to manage expectations Pick better targets (for driving and approach play) Learn how to drive the ball further Incorporate random practice to supplement blocked practice LSW does a better job IMO of helping steer the reader towards effective use of practice time by introducing the concept of “Separation Value”. Four Foundations is going to help folks that haven’t read LSW. I found myself finishing several chapters with “is that all???”, hoping Jon would provide more details and actionable advice. For example, Jon advocates becoming a “one trick pony” and limiting your menu of golf shots. I think he could have gone further to help players analytically arrive at an appropriate “sub-menu”. So unless you are just a golf book junkie like I am, if you’ve read LSW I don’t think you’ll find much new here.
