Yesterday I mowed my large and steep front lawn, not on a riding mower.  Then I succumbed to two gin & tonics.  I thought about riding my bike for 8 miles but went to the range instead and hit a b

Getting up at 4am and trying to calm my newborn bouncing on an exercise ball :-( That's a core workout, right?

Have been trying to fit in body weight stuff (push-ups, pull-ups, core, plyos, etc.) when I can.  Haven't beat 2x a week yet, but have gotten in 2 every week so far at least...

I remember those days. Good thing babies are cute, or those morning wake up calls could be pretty miserable. Good you're still able to work out. Don't let yourself go like some of us. :-X

I like that you have everything charted like that.  I do a 3 day strength training and 2 day cardio regiment but it would be nice to have it all in one place like that so I can plan out my workouts for the week.  I recently picked up a complete workout guide by mens health and changed my resistance band/exercise ball workout I made up to a more focused workout like you have and included about 15 minutes of stretching-type exercises.

I started the stretching regiment when I realized I couldn't do this very well due to lack of flexibility http://thesandtrap.com/t/54540/a-centered-pivot

I actually started getting back into golf to have something to do on the weekends about 14 months ago.  So far, I am down 55lbs and feel better than I ever had in my life.  I don't want to say golf has done that for me but it continues to give the little extra push sometimes.

Now I have to go get a dry-erase board haha

My morning work out is what it has been for a long time...I get out of bed :-P

Then, it is my (almost) every morning walk with the dogs which is a couple of miles RT. After that, I do another 4 miles on a mountain bike, which include hills, valleys, soft sand, gravel, and dodging an occasional snake, or two. Wild burrows, and desert big horn sheep sometimes take notice of me. This is a major work out regime for me right now to regain some lost leg strength.

In cooler weather I will get the back pack, and walking staff out, and take off across the desert, with no particular destination in mind. Those hikes sometimes might last as much as a two or three days. Most of those multi day  hikes are volunteer work for the NPS. Other times I will take a small box of lures, and a fishing pole, and walk the banks of the local lake, doing the catch, and release thing.

One of my favorite multi mile hikes involves a dry lake bed, two golf balls, and an old 2 iron. You can figure out the rest on this one. :-D

Hey Mike,

Love the workouts you're doing.  I got away from weights after my college baseball career was over partly mostly because I'd only ever been taught classic (but not good classic) weight lifting.  You know, chest/triceps day of bench, incline bench, flies, tricep press, etc.  Back/shoulders day of rows, back flies, pull-ups, shoulder press, lighter weight baseball style rotator cuff stuff, various curls.  And a legs day squats, leg curls, quad extensions, etc.  Throw in core stuff most days.  Even after shifting off bars and machines to all dumbbells, never seemed like the most functional strength, and got kinda boring.  Love the workouts you've been posting.  Cool mix of classic and modern stuff with and without weights, lots of full body power and stabilization.  I might try something like you're doing if I ever buy a nice set of weights.  Where'd you get it from (maybe it's posted way back in this thread, but...)?

Also, if anyone's interested in pure body weight full body stuff, thought I'd share one of the workouts I just found that I've been loving: http://sealgrinderpt.com/navy-seal-workout/sb-workout-7-20-14-2.html/ .  I don't have time for the full 2 hour workout right now, so I've just been doing the first 30 minute part and my own stretching routine.  Especially if you push it and try to get through as fast as possible (keeping good form and control of course!), it's cool cause it's a solid full body workout in 40 minutes and at full speed it's even a light cardio workout for me at least.

Thanks, the chart/board at my kettlebell gym, so I just take pictures of the workout. I sometimes do them at home, so it's nice to have it all written down.

At my gym there are just kettlebells and a barbell. Kettlebells are pretty cool because it's a mix of aerobic and anaerobic cardio, really good for fat burning. Then to add more strength, I've started doing power lifting and heavy kettlebell complexes, like this one. I'll do this at home once or twice a week for 5 sets. This guy makes it look easy btw, the double front squats are a bitch.

Did my Joey D workout today.  I do this one 2 - 3 times a week.  I will be working on the FishFit app workouts this weekend and will be writing a review.

Four more injections in my lumbar region.  Four prednisone.  Two Lortabs.  One tall-boy Bud Light.  Later on some Wii Golf.  It's been a bad week.

I guess I overdid the cardio while I was on the road this week. I tried to get on the elliptical tonight and couldn't do it because my knee hurt too much. I did get a whole body weight session in though.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
