After a fairly weak effort on Monday that involved nothing more than 45 minutes on an exercise bike (while I was reading a book), I did a bit better last night. Leg presses, machine-aided squats, calf extensions, leg extensions, leg curls and glutes. Then 15-minutes on the eliptical at a good pace. 

Now the key is to not be bad during my non-gym, Thursday night.

I've stuck with it everyday since the 21st.  It's been a little difficult while having to take caution with the knee, but it's also allowed me to focus on other areas that I can tend to neglect... e.g. core, flexibility

On day 5 now. 30 minutes every morning. Mason twists, steam engines, abdominal crunches, raised abdominal crunches, planking, side planking, supermans, windmills and a couple others. I'm using the SWORKIT app in my iPhone. Hopefully I can stick to it.

I do various things for my fitness and now that I'm more into golf (and not wrecking my game in the weight room) I am trying different things golf-related. Thought I'd pass on that I'm enjoying a certain exercise in the gym called the "sideways heisman". Might just be called "heisman". It's basically a lunge up on a step, lifting your knee very high while turning your shoulders far toward the leg being lifted. I do it with an 8 or 10 pound medicine ball, arms stretched straight out. Very good exercise that seems to have played a role in my improvement with the club in my hands.

Thoracic mobility with deep torso strength exercises.  This includes lower core stability functional movement combine with kettle bell swings, squats, and timed sequenced golf swings.  I like to also throw in some TRX, towel, and band work.

Final stretch of training for my first Half-Marathon. May 21st...

So running, running, and more running. Dropped down from 180 to about 157 so far. In the past 12 weeks, I'll have almost 200 miles in by race day.

That's a lot of dropped weight. Good luck with the race. Please let us know how you do.


I've been working out for about a month now. My wife and I joined a local gym that opened recently in the small town where we live. The gym is unsupervised so we punch in a code to get in and while my wife does her cardio, I'll alternate between lower and upper body workouts, three nights per week.

I have no idea what I'm doing. Just trying to keep the resistance on the light side and do the reps slower until I get to failure. I guess the main purpose is to try and keep my joints and tendons in shape while at the same time trying to regain some lost strength. Would be nice if I could lose a few pounds as well, but I think our diet needs a complete overhaul for that to happen.

Anyway, it feels good to get back into this with a bit more ambition than I've had over the last couple... decades.

We have a big planter box at edge of our front yard facing street. It has been looking a little haggard so I cleaned up the plants and then put down 800 lbs of topsoil and ten bags of red mulch (took two trips in SUV to Home Depot).  Probably sweated out a gallon but it looks better. Wife was happy.

Very cool getting into it for the first time. Just watch a lot of youtube videos...if you find the AthleanX videos, Jeff is very knowledgable and may be able to help you out.

Race went very well. Ended up running 13.51 miles, in 1:54:43...so an 8:30 miles pace. My main goal was under 2 hours, with a secondary goal of 1:55. So I JUST barely beat it!

    • The lesson was bit "meh", could of been partly because I had really bad headache. It's been actually so bad that I've taken few days off course completely and had a visit to a doctor. Instructor basically told me three things: 1. My upper back and chest are extremely tight, have so called "facet lock" if that's the right term in English 2. I slide a lot towards target during my downswing, making it hard to hit driver 3. I should check the lie angles of my clubs, 1 degree or so upright could help. For number 2 he gave me a drill where you set yourself to impact position and start the backswing from there. I pointed out this could work as a trigger move for me, he agreed. Will work on this surely, but I feel now it's not the time. I asked him few times about my wrist condition at the top of backswing, but he didn't feel that's a problem which made be bit disappointed because I feel it clearly is after watching the day 4 drill. Taking the wrist action as my number one priority to fix, because I feel there's many things that arched position at the top is preventing me from doing. Been working on it bit inside and today got to hit some balls. In order to have a chance to get that cupped wrist position at the top, I felt like my backswing direction had to change, the plane looks completely different now. I checked the wrist position multiple times before swinging, but I couldn't hold it at the top. However now it's atleast flat instead of arched, but I guess this needs much more work: Imgur Post with 1 views. Left wrist looks better to my eye at impact, but could it be I'm rolling my wrists over more or something? Thanks in advance!
    • A senior player I know likes to buy clubs from Callaway Pre-Own. He said they offer great prices/condition, trade-in value and returns if you don’t like the clubs. He is constantly swapping club through the program.
    • Played Pinehurst #5 this morning, finished with a 78.  Drove the ball well, hit 13/15 fairways.  Greens in Regulation, 3! That’s right, just missing most of them.  Putting saved my round,  26 total putts, 13 a side.  8 one putts several from 5 feet of more to save par.  Made two birdies, one of them from off the green from about 16ft, a real gift. The 9th hole was hilarious (at least to me). Dogleg right downhill (363 yards). Cut the corner with my 4 wood. 2nd shit is 140 downhill with the wind at my back.  Immediate thought was pitching wedge. Green had a false front, flag was short middle. So I thought let’s hit an abbreviated 9 iron. Great swing, ball is high and turning right to left. Looked like it will be right on the pin. Flies the pin and rolls off the back.  Up and down, one putt.  Oh well!
    • Shot a fantastic 70 (35-35) today. 4 birdies, with a bogey on 9 and 18. Stupid 3 puts on both. Actually shot my age again. First time it was a 68, two years ago.
