Actually the walking does count, but you could enhance that by carrying your clubs overhead, jogging in-between holes, and doing jumping jacks when you sink a put . 

Not gonna lie, the most I do is use a pull cart and walk.  Hopefully will get back to my normal exercise routine which consisted of me walking around 5 to 10 km daily and attempting to control my diet.  Need to start using the gym and doing exercise other than walking, but not sure if and when that will happen

Earlier this morning, not including "warm up" sets:

Squats at 3x5x125 (moved up weight because I had done 3x8x115 last time)

Press;  wanted to do 3x8x75 but on the second set, I only got to seven.  So 75 lbs it will be for press again next time (tentatively scheduled for Sunday).

You might be glad to know I do this quite a bit.  I don't just mean "I walk when I play golf" (although given the choice, I'll walk and not ride), but recreational walking and biking.  Just yesterday, I walked... I think 13 miles, give or take.  My phone was fully charged when I left my house, but between listening to podcasts via bluetooth headset and using UA's "MapMyWalk" app, I had about 25% power left after 11.5 miles, so I stopped tracking mileage.  I was about two miles from my house at the time and got back with about 12% power.  

(So now, I'm going through some old powerbanks, most of which have former employer's logos on them [they were gifts / handouts, not employer property in case anyone reading this is wondering], trying to find one that still works so next time, I can track the full walk... and walk a bit more)

All this exercise the past 7-8 weeks might be why I'm down 10 pounds since mid-June.

I have been crucified  on this forum for illustrating them, so now I only post to older golfers because the young ones only believe in weights. 

Where has this happened? I don’t recall anyone doing this. I do mobility exercises as part of my workout regime.

Very good, you are setting a great example of someone who benefits from low impact exercise and walking is the best.

It is especially helpful to walk on grass instead of pavement. Since there is give in the ground this  works more of the muscles in the feet. Walter Payton, the great running back said he ran hills and mountains as part of his training because it best simulated what his muscles would experience on the football field. He attributed that to less injuries to his body.

I thought Sweetness liked to dance.  At least, that's what the song said. ;-) 

I'm not sure where I'd go to run on grass;  there's plenty of places to take a long walk on dirt or artificial surfaces around here, but I don't see anywhere to take a long walk on grass.  But there are some parks, I'll aim to walk through the grass next time I'm at those.  Or maybe I can go run windsprints at a nearby football field, I haven't had to do those in a while.

As for this morning's weights, I managed deadlift 205 (5 reps) after trying to bench 3x7x125, but on the third set, I only got to six.

This is my third day in a row getting on the new bike and going out for about 45 minutes around the neighborhood. It amazes me how many hills I could go up as a kid and not feel it. Now every hill is a burn! 

yes, it is amazing how many other things we did not feel as a kid that we feel now. It is like discovering things we never knew we had

I've just started doing Yoga.... it's made a huge difference to my game ... just don't go out for 18 when you've just finished a class ... lol. 

It sure does . It is a lot harder then people think. I have been doing it and teaching it for 23 years.

I enjoy it as well and have probably been doing it for 25+ years. Many of the stretches and positions are similar to the warm ups we did in gymnastics when I was young. I also combine some of the rehab exercises I got from my PTs after my shoulder and knee surgeries. They all seem to focus on doing the proper movements and active and static stretching/exercise just as yoga does.

It did not get to be 5000 years old by not working. Gymnastics and PT use a lot of the same principles. If you are doing some flow, then you are helping your golf game because it keeps the muscles working together as a unit, dynamically. Keep up the good work.

It’s pretty much all flow. I’ve put together a routine from moves I’ve learned over the years. I like flow the most because I can focus on different areas I as go. I also focus on the breathing a lot, which both the gymnastics and PT emphasized.

You hit upon another great point, the breathing. Nothing is taken for granted more than the breathing. I have a video of an interview with Aaron Rodgers of the Packers. It was taken after the Dallas Cowboys game a few years ago, when he led a drive in the playoffs to beat the Cowboys in the closing seconds. 

He was asked what he was thinking about as he waited on the sidelines to go back on the field for that last drive. He replied " I was not thinking about anything. I was listening to my breath. I wanted to make sure it was smooth and easy so I would remain calm and relaxed.  Arron does Yoga.

After seeing the driver distance average from yesterday, I couldn't wait to get back to training today.  Last night, I went on a 17 mile bike ride, including climbing a hill I had never successfully climbed before on my bike -- last night was my first time going up it without having to stop and walk.  Then this afternoon, back to the weights.  3x6x125 squats, 3x5x80 press (last set was at 7 reps), but capped out at 3 reps at 205 for deadlift (despite having done 5 earlier in the week).  I did two sets of three for that.

    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
