I've gone on and off regular training mostly due to getting too sore pushing my 49 year old body beyond what it can handle. This time it's different! This weekly routine seems to be good so far:

M - Strength training - Deadlift & Press - following Wendler 5/3/1 beginner program

T - Stretch & 15 min Core Workout

W - Golf!

Th - Strength training - Bench & Squats - 5/3/1

F - Stretch & 15 min Core Workout 

Sat/Sun - Golf

Unfortunately the past two weeks my only exercise has been weekly golf, though this weekend will probably get in three rounds.  Used to walk at least 10 km daily but that has stopped.  Need to get back to that from Monday

Is pulling the trigger on my pistol at the range today 100 times, going out to lunch with my friends after, considered working out? Sheesh, I'm going out now to walk the dog.

Well, I am trying to get more physically fit.  I have a LONG way to go.  I am a 60 year old desk sitting engineer!  After four abdominal surgeries (including a hernia repair to fix the results from one of the others), in 2016 and 2017, I got really protective of my middle, and let what little "core" I had go away.  Radiation and chemo didn't help either.  I've also got asthma, which makes some types of exercise a bit difficult, but to be honest, that's more of an excuse, than a reason.  Fortunately, a new drug over the past couple year has helped significantly with that, walking that would make me huff and puff no longer does, so that is a good thing.

So, earlier this year, I decided it was time to do something about my condition.  I have been saying forever that I saw getting exercise from golf.  Which was not untrue, but riding around in a cart certainly reduced the potential advantage!  I decided that I was not likely to walk the course if I had to push my clubs, so I bought the Zip Navigator package from Costco in mid January.  It's got about 105 miles on it now, so I am getting a bit of walking in.  I had blister problems at first, some new shoes, and some preround foot preparation have it almost under control, though there is still one spot I am trying to figure out.

A couple weeks ago, after seeing too many Facebook ads for GolfForever, I went ahead a bought a year's subscription.  With a discount code, it's really not that much, and I though it might help.  So I have been doing that, probably every other day or so.  I'm still working on making it a part of my routine.  Oh, I have discovered that my balance isn't as good as I thought it was!

So, that's the setup!

Workout (seems a strong word!) today:

1. My first foam roller routine, about 15 minutes.  I've never done anything like it before, I am not yet sure what I think about it!

2. About a 15 minute routine aimed at back injury protection, which used tubing for a number of exercises.  I found my balance is not very ready for a split squat.  I need to work on that!

I figure I should talk about my workouts somewhere other than a Google sheet.  I set up a rack in my garage a few weeks ago and have been using it MWF mornings before work.  Today I did 140 lbs squats, 125 lb bench press, and 205 lb deadlift, plus warm-ups for each.  I don't plan to advance mine as quickly as I did when I was getting back, but rather focusing on being comfortable with them.  I'm sure Rippetoe would disapprove, but I also don't eat enough (or I don't eat the right things?) to advance as quickly as some people do in his program (I'm also not as young as some people who go through Starting Strength).  About ten years ago I had a period of about a year where I was at the gym every other day and got some good numbers going then.  😕

Today GolfForever workout was hip mobility, and then shoulder strength.  I am so out of shape it is embarrassing.  Hopefully in a few weeks I will start to see results, and not feel like so much of a potato!

I was doing at least a 10 km walk daily, but the last month or so it has gone down dramatically.  Have decided to start again from today and walk for now.  It will help me get fit and as I lose some weight, I hope my golf game will automatically improve.

72 years old. Warmed up for 30 minutes, then played 18 holes.

After getting home, did a 20 minute EMOM;

Minute 1 - 20 jump squats.

Minute 2 - 20 Russian Kettlebell swings.

After that, did my Max Swing Speed training routine.

Stretched, showered, dinner, TV & relax for the rest of the day.

GolfForever again this morning.  Hip mobility was the focus of the stretching, then core stability in the strength.

Well, as I'm sure you know, it's all about what your goals are.  I just started a cut last week which I plan to end in three months.  I'm guessing most people wouldn't think I'm overweight, but I'd estimate I'm at 18% body fat and really that's the top end of where I want to be.

If you don't use it you lose it  and I have been around enough people who have not used it. LOL

    • That was my point, all other variables equal, how could these shoes (vs the standard toe box shoes) make a that ridiculous claim? Sorry if that wasn’t clear.    what’s even more ridiculous is that someone will bite
    • It could. If you swing in bare feet on wet grass, you'll swing slower. That said, I don't think the shoes do anything other shoes don't. And the stat about "an 18 handicapper who is now an 11…" is laughably bad.
    • Should be good if you want to watch PGA Tour events. 🙂 PGA TOUR LIVE on ESPN+ set to launch January 2022 - Four new streaming feeds more than triples live coverage to more than 4,300 exclusive hours.

    • How can a shoe make the claim that they can increase distance by increasing swing speed? Assuming all variables equal, how could having a squared toe increase swing speed?    SQAIRZ | The Distance and Comfort Golf Shoe | $20 Off All Golf Shoes!

    • I agree with this. Had Tiger crashed into another vehicle and/or injured another person he would be more due to give an explanation perhaps.
