Your Workout Today

I need to start doing pullups to get some upper body strength. I can "feel it" a little when I hit 3i against a net. IDK how far I can hit it, but it feels way more solid. We'll see tomorrow.

More Pilates and Yoga today. Trying to get my intercostal and obliques worked a little before my first round in a week tomorrow morning.

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 started doing this a few weeks ago following this recipe .  I do like the texture and the good source of carbs.  I throw in some peanut butter sometimes to up the calories.  Good stuff.

I am sore today after doing 5x5 squats, bench, and deadlift on Saturday.

Just went through a lite workout today. Just trying to gain some range of motion back. My hips are still bothering me. Though the pain doesn't linger as long as it use to. Still the same, I start doing anything that involves hip flexion over a a period of time and I get some hip pain. Give it a few minutes of non-activity, or just walking around and the pain goes away.

Hopefully I am on the tail end of this.

I think it might be time to get into yoga. My hamstrings and calf muscles were way tight today.

On a good note, my back seems to be fully healed on me. I was able to perform some stretches that I wasn't able to about 3 weeks ago.

I hate lingering injuries. :censored:

Having been working out at company gym for the last 2 weeks.   I picked the work out that will improve my golf game.   I've also used treadmill for 20 mins.  This is going to be my routine hereon.   The work out is part of my 3 pronged approach to improve my golf game this year.  The other two are taking lessons (in progress), and upgrading my club set (fitted, arrived/arriving).

Having trouble getting back into workouts post holidays. I am suffering through severe bursitis in my right knee due to working around the house, removed and laid new flooring. Been two weeks now and still sore and limpy.

Finally got in to see the Dr. this morning. Initial diagnosis on the upper back is a Trapezius sprain, and I have a visit with the spine specialist later this month for the neck/shoulder issue, and PT starts this afternoon. Good news is he said it's fine to workout, just avoid any workouts that involve the trap muscles. Looks like back day is gonna be a lot of pullups haha.

Not sure if it could have been better or worse but at least you have a diagnosis and have a plan for making a full recovery.  Hopefully it won't take too long.

As for me, I got back on the horse again after spending pretty much the last two and a half weeks at my moms.

Bent-Over Dumbbell Rows: 25lbs each arm x 3 x 12

Upright rows: 40lbs x 3 x (12/12/8)

Dumbbell Curls:  10lbs x 3 x 8

Found during the dumbbell curls that my left arm struggled about with the weight and my right arm was ok with it.  Not sure if I should drop the weight and do a weight that both arms would be comfortable with or not or keep at is and have the left arm build up to where the right arm currently is.

Also ran 40 minutes on the treadmill and burned 472 calories.  Didn't push myself and did the same workout as the first time I ran on it but it certainly felt easier today than it did then.

I have also lost 11 pounds in the last month.  Would liked to have lost more but I think with the holidays, it was probably unrealistic.  I'm debating changing my eating plan on myfitnesspal.com, but I am proud to say that I've put in 175g of protein in me today and I haven't had dinner yet.  I think that's the most I've had in a day so far.  1300 calories in the day thus far, too, so feeling good about that.

The plan is a short (30m) circuits session every other day. All weighted stuff (only 10/20kg at the moment) mostly around core muscles - 60 goblet press, 60 squats, 90 step-ups, 60 situps, 50 reps on shoulder press (70kg), 90 mountain climbers, 60 burpees (no weights!), 60 lat pulls (70kg). Probably a few other things that I've forgotten. Did it for the first time since before Christmas last night and my quads have a nice warm ache this morning.

Woke up today a bit sore after yesterday's but nowhere near as sore after the first workout.  I think I'm going to try and find some middle ground on the weights.

That's the way it goes. After a couple/few months, you'll have to work REALLY hard to get sore. (Except legs...they always suck)

That's the goal, though, right? I am under the impression that soreness is an indicator that you worked your muscles.

Yup. As long as you can differentiate soreness from pain. But also, over time your muscles just get more used to the abuse...and it won't be as sore.

Yeah, the first time I think I overdid it because I ended up in pain for a few days, haha.

    • Got my booster today.  Did not, and do not, feel a thing.  Needles must be thinner than they were when I was a kid.  Either that or I am just older and less sensitive.  Be safe folks.
    • Went four five.  Confidence is an emergent quality for me.  
    • I find that “confidence” only really comes into play in my game on the greens…I have become very good at knowing what shots I can hit and ones I cannot tee to green…high fade that starts over trouble and catches the left edge of the green leaving an uphill birdie putt?  Never could, never will…but hitting a punch shot that either catches the front of the green no matter where the pin is or at worst leaves a straightforward chip?  I can hit that shot all day, everyday… But when putting, every now and then the line and speed come together, and when happens on the first or second hole, that breeds great confidence with the flat stick and a great score is coming…opposite true as well…early three jacks just makes everything on the green a crapshoot… my 2 cents, for whatever it’s worth…      
    • I chose 8.  Of course one needs the ability and skill to play well, in any sport.  Being confident also does have a big impact on results.  Michael Jordan, Tiger and a slew of others wouldn’t have won as much as they did without confidence.
