Your Workout Today


Recommended Posts

Started running, well, more like jogging, regularly again. Did 5K earlier today and 5K every other day for the past month, plus the weight bearing stuff - pushups, pullups, ab work on the no run days. Hopefully the body will stay injury free, running is super high impact (add in golf, not exactly great for the back), not going for speed, taking it easy with 9.5 minute miles, going for the aerobic workout and the mini dopamine high. Will have to dust off the road bike to reduce the wear and tear on the body.

Walked 18. Left my smartphone in my pocket while walking 18, curious what the pedometer numbers would be. It recorded approximately 16,390 steps for the round. Here's what the profile looks like. I thought a round was like a 5 mile walk, or around 10K steps. Admittedly, was playing army golf. Plus lots of searching for balls. 16K steps is around 7.5 miles, so something screwy with the perdometer app.

Update: The mores of a metropolis dweller combined with a round of golf, may still go out again tonight. So busy, skipped lunch. This is how you lose weight without "trying".

Did not want to go jogging this morning, but forced myself to do the 5K. One may be tired and grumpy at first, but there are never any regrets afterwards.. And the weather was really nice, finally, sun and warmth. And nice views of the feminine persuasion along the way.

Only if you hit them straight ;-) and without much distance between the green and the next tee.

5K at 75%, 5:29 kilometer pace. Hopefully nine minute miles are in the past and it'll be the eights for awhile.

Today, it's 95 ° and I helped someone move for 8 hours.

Ouch! It is either hot, raining or snowing when you help someone move!

My workout was yard work most of the day. Cut out and cut down a lot of branches from our oak tree out back. Don't have a pole chainsaw or chainsaw, did it using garden tools and a manual pole saw. Took most of the day and was necessary. Then spread bug poison granules and sprayed bug poison around house and back yard. Drank 5 16oz bottles of water and a large Gatorade and still sweated out about 2lbs of water weight. 

Going to start doing a little exercise in the mornings in addition to my evening walks. Wife wants to get in shape before our cruise in February.

So, slight brag but on a milestone birthday got this up for two sets of five reps.

I glanced at this quickly and thought it was a bench press for a second... :bugout:

Haha, no, that's my deadlift.

My bench is only 165 and I last got that up for two sets of four reps.

But I do want to thank @Slice of Life for providing guidance when I first took on this endeavor.

Just looking at that bar makes my back hurt. 

I know deadlifts are supposed to be the bee's knees, but I'm forever worried about technique as so forth.

Yah, I lift the weight I can and only go up 10 pounds when I can get six reps in a set so I can go up in weight without hurting myself and maintaining proper form.

When I'm in the flat lands of Florida, I do push ups, sit ups, and squats (no weights) as part of my workout routine, but about a week ago, I started doing planks.   By which I mean, holding the body parallel to the floor supported by only your feet and elbows.   I never would have believed how hard that is.  I can only do a plank for about 45 seconds.   And the one where you raise one foot is even more difficult.  

I have read that planks will strengthen the core, and build the muscles that protect the lower back.

    • I've always been curious about this, especially since I've lost a few head covers and always see a few sprinkled on the course.
    • I'll do my best to get it done and have some fun along the way. I don't have any particular courses in mind. But whenever I travel I try to get to a course nearby, if the trip isn't dedicated just for golf. If you have any suggestions of your favorites, feel free to let me know. Thanks for the response.
    • Day 17 (of last 18, 4 in a row) - Did some putting with the smart ball.  Also felt like my weight was ending on my right side, so I worked to feel like my weight finished on my left.  Tried stepping down on my left heal to start the forward stroke.  Seemed to feel pretty good.
    • Ok. So here's  the info from the last three sessions.... just so everyone knows when I'm hitting well, most of my clubs go around tour average , when I'm hitting  super good maybe ten yards  farther for my irons.. So I'm just trying to lock in the draw. My natural swing is a fade. First session, slight  head wind. Hitting some pretty decent draws. Second session, slight tail wind, but mostly right to left, huge draws. Today it was so still you could probably hear a ball landing off a 500 yard tee shot, couldn't hardly curve the ball.  What really gets me is when I over exaggerated the in to out action on my swing a hardly got any curve. But what was strangest was I had a lot of these shots that started right and even started to curve back left but then they stopped  just started flying straight  right after appearing to begin curving back. So they ending up being more of a push. What was more weird  was when they reached the Apex of their flight and started to fall they drifted from left to right. But there was zero wind and they began curving from right to left before  they stalled... it happened over and over. Some of the strangest ball flights I've ever seen. What's going on?      
    • 73 (+2) today in breezy and cool conditions.  Had a few bad swings but overall pretty happy with how I played.  Hit 14 greens...made a couple birdies but left a couple out there.   Encouraged that the SuperSpeed work I've done has been positive.  Can tell the swing faster but I don't feel out of control.  Only a couple bad drives but neither cost me very much...
