Your Workout Today

Recommended Posts

Back today.

Depending on how I'm feeling, I may try to 1 rep up my whole olympic set (300 lbs) on the deadlift.

It will determine if I need to buy more weight soon. Mwahahahaha

(May end up in hospital)

Pulled it up twice with no worries. Time to buy more plates. Hammies are feeling good today....

Goal is 2.5x my bodyweight. So assuming I get back down to 160 soon, that would be 400 even.

Chest and Shoulders today. The best.

Nice dude, I'm working to pull 300 by the end of the year.

My work out today consisted of chopping 1/2 cord of fire wood. I will do the same thing once a week for the next 6 weeks. Not sure how that will relate to my golf swing, but I don't think it will cause too much harm. The beer afterwards is the best part. :beer:

Is that dangerous for the back with that much weight, going so heavy with few reps?

Not as long as the form is good. I was just testing my 1 rep max, not something I would do every week...but there's nothing wrong with it as long as you have a lot of experience with the specific exercise.

Will do. I could probably get up somewhere between 325 and 340 right now. So it'll be at least a month or two before I get all my strength back.

That's one thing I'm missing. Gotta hang my big whiteboard down in the gym so I can keep track. Same with some mirrors.

Squats today. Just 6 sets of heavy squats. Then some pushups and ab work. Fun times.

Due to a recent bout of injuries from being so out of shape, I think I'll start doing pull-ups and push-ups. I have a Yaniro board from my rock climbing days, and some metolius rings to do some pull-ups. I doubt I'll ever do front levers again, but at least I need to get in some semblance of shape. No more cerveza workouts any more. :-X

Posted by one of my FB friends. I won't be doing any of the exercises, just eating the candy and enjoying but thought this was funny.

Rolled my shoulder with a tennis ball. The muscle right in the armpit felt extremely painful from overworking it. The rolling made it feel good enough to make some swings. Switched to using my old Burner 1.0 irons so it does not put as much stress on this muscle.

Planning on doing pullups once possible without pain.

Worked on my deadlift form today. I tend to have my hips too high at the start and the back can get rounded. So focused on the following cues.

- Start with my shins about 1 inch away from the bar

- Drop my knees forward and out until the shins touch the bar. This gets my tailbone down.

- Pack my lats. This gets my chest up, back flattish.

- Then push the ground away from me keeping the bar in contact with my legs.

Anyone else feel or work on pieces like this? It feels like more of the weight is towards my heels and like I'm "falling back". Definitely felt it more in my glutes.

5x5 145 lbs

5x5 Sumo 145

5x3 205

3 pull ups or chin ups between each set.

I've fortunately never had a problem with deadlift form. Squats on the other hand...

Yes, I have been working on this too.  I can tell by how sore my back is the next day if I rounded my back during the lifts.  Yes, feeling the glutes tighten is my indicator that I have good form.

Just like golf, we all have our own priorities. Never had to worry much with squat form, sometime right right knee likes to cave in as I'm coming up but always been good with starting my squat with my hips.

Thanks. Did some more form work this morning and it felt pretty good. The cues to pack my lats and feeling the bar ride up my shins seems to really help.

    • IMO - This is the correct answer.  You want to find something more comical try to figure out what is cast and what is forged. Sometimes the whole club head is forged. Sometimes the whole head is cast. Sometimes the face is forged and welded to a cast head. They still stamp "forged" on it. Sometimes the body is forged, then a cast face is welded on it. Again, they still stamp "forged" on the clubhead. 
    • Day 294 - 9-hole league tonight; putting needs work.
    • Okay, I did this twice more today.  The first time was weak so we won't talk about it.  The second time was pretty good.  12 footer past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point          1 12 footer past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point          2 12 footer made = +8 points                                 10 12 footer past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point          11 12 footer made = +8 points                                  19 16 footer made = +12 points                                31 16 footer made = +12 points                                43 16 footer past the hole - 2 putt =  +1 point          44 16 footer past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point            35 16 footer past the hole - 2 putt = +1 point            46 Okay, I made 46 points but I'm not sure if I'm cheating. Here's the way I've been doing it. I put 5 balls around the hole in a clock drill style formation. (I'm sure you are all familiar with the clock drill) I put them all at 12 feet from the hole. Then I work my way around the hole hitting each 12 footer. If I miss I hit the second putt and continue until the ball is holed. So, each putt breaks a bit differently, but I kind of get some information based on what the other putts did. Then I reset the clock drill but this time I put the balls all at 16 feet. Then work my way around. So, yeah each putt is different, but I suppose you could argue that I am getting information about the break from other putts. AND I'm also kind of zeroing in my 12 foot putt distance and then also my 16 foot putt distance.  So, you tell me. Is that legal? Or am I cheating? I mean conceivably I could set up all ten balls in the clock formation setting them all at 15 feet. Which I was thinking of trying next time.   
    • The technology has come so far. It’s truly amazing now to see how irons (and all clubs/balls) perform now compared to years ago. I find it comical when people refer to “players clubs” like Titleist T-100 as blades.    I suggest just choose the ones you like, and perform and get fitted for them and just enjoy. People love to push what they play or tell everyone why they shouldn’t play this or that. Play what you will enjoy.
