Hit back yesterday. Still afraid to go super heavy...

Fortunately my neck/upper back felt pretty good this morning.

Just chugged a protein/oats/milk shake as my preworkout, and now I'm gonna hit legs and abs.

Today was the official weigh-in for my goal, and I was 2.4 lbs under goal. Time to eat tonight, gents. :beer:

Here is what I do two times a week, I'm 69.

Start with 10 minutes on the stationary bike

All excerises are done twice

25 arm curls at 20 pounds

30 on my back and push fast with 15 pound weight up not sure what to call them, kinda like a chest push

10 body weight pull-ups laying on my back to a bar

15 ball slams overhead, ball weight 15 pounds

12 side tosses with weighted ball 6 pounds

12 downward ball slams, kind of like a chop

high step across the length of gym to stretch hamstrings

12 ball tosses while on my knee's against the wall toss

lat pull downs

squats with 12 pound weights, while pushing arms over my head after squat

Russian Twists on Med Ball with 10 pound weight fast as I can, 15 of those reps each side

50 pushups sometimes 65,

30 crunch's, balanced on my butt, with legs off the ground, rotating side to side with a 6 pound weight

Stretching exercise's on a mat for hips and back, and lats

Plus some other stuff I don't know what to call them, but got them from various sites, like MYTPI and so on

Take about 2 hours to do complete workout

Hey Larry! Welcome!

That's a long workout...I don't have the patience for 2 hours lol

Any of you guys mix oats into your shakes? I've started blending old fashioned oats in my shakes for better carbs and some fiber, and it's surprisingly tasty.

I haven't tried the oats but I do blend milled flax seed into my shakes (in an attempt to increase HDL). Makes the shakes a bit gritty but doesn't hurt the taste. I might try adding oats as well. Might be a dumb question, but would Quaker Oats work?

That's what I use, is just quaker old fashioned oats. They blend in and it is a little gritty...but it gives it a good texture with milk...almost like shredded wheat cereal hahah.

Did Deadlift and Squats today. Will do the Bench tomorrow My lower back was starting to feel tweeky.

Deadlift

145x5x1

165x3x1

185x1x1

Squat

115x5x1

135x5x1

145x2x1

This variation on the 531 is really working for me. I do all three exercises once every 5-7 days and do accessory

exercises on the days in between. I am going to skip the deload week and go right into the next cycle.

The loads are not stressing me too much and they are so far apart I am fully recovered.

Leg day.

Just did squats. All of the squats. Got up to 8 reps of 275. Probably not the best thing for my neck/upper back, but until I'm told otherwise, I'm lifting heavy. Dr's appt on Tuesday morning, so we'll see what hoops they tell me to jump through.

I haven't but it sounds good, will have to try it. Taking a couple days off. Got a cold and lower back is a little tight. No pain really, just fatigue. Using the foam roller on it and going to start doing more hamstring stretches.

    • Day 12 Chipping practice into a net.
    • What length do you play your driver?  Most drivers come standard from the shop well over 45" (45.5, 45.75, etc).  Mine was fitted right at 45"
    • This is a good publicity stunt, though, unlike that Koepka rivalry crap. People have been comparing LD guys to PGA Tour guys forever, now we can actually see one in a competition.
    • I'm a truck driver and every now and then, I stop by a hospital or reference lab and repair a blood bank analyzer.  Well, at least that's how it feels. 😉  I'm actually a field service engineer for a blood bank analyzer company, but I spend as much time driving to accounts as in them.  My 3 1/2 year old pickup has 118k miles on it already. (We drive our own vehicles and get a stipend to make up for it.) I hope to be retired and a full-time golf bum in the not-to-distant future!
    • Saw this a couple of days ago, not sure if it should have its own thread or not, but thought this was a good a place as any to post. I thought for sure there would already be a post on it, but I didn’t see one.     Bryson wrecking hands in long-drive prep Bryson DeChambeau has received some battle scars while training for the Ryder Cup and... Any thoughts on how he’ll do? Embarrass himself or make a decent showing?    I’d assume he’d had the least problem putting them “in the grid,” uncertain how he’ll measure up to their distances. I’d guess he feels that he would make a good showing so as to not embarrass himself…unless it’s all just another publicity stunt for the $40M bonus prize for the whole social media thing
