I agree. Many of my high school football, track, ice hockey, and baseball team mates were superior athletes that went on to play in college and pros. Ran into a couple of those guys in the last ten years. 90% of them have two or more health risk factors. 

There response to me........your body looks the same as it did in high school. Just said to them I turned into a fitness freak! I have exercise addiction. Don't be like me.

Good Morning JCrane:

Starting my early morning with 40 minutes on the elliptical machine. Resistance bands circuit 3x15. Cool down with 15 minutes of treadmill walk-run intervals to maintain speed and quickness. 

This afternoon, meeting the bike club members at the San Pedro Marine for a 60 min bike racing criterium intervals. 

Finallly, play nine holes of Par 3 golf and cool down with 30 minutes on the elliptical machine. I reached my goal of working out twice a day for one week. I have been doing this activity, one week of double cardio workouts, for the past two years. My Xmas present.

What is your workout for today?

Actually reading your post makes me realize we can build up to more if we want. After a hamstring pull and an episode of tight back muscles, I am up to daily Pickle ball. I see it now as a muscle adjustment. I am now playing until I start getting sloppy, then I quit. Like all my other workouts I have found I have to slowly condition the muscles to accept more challenge. Once my energy level is high for Pickle ball, I plan on reintroducing the swim program that I set aside when I pulled my hamstring. I am sure you will agree that it is really fun to challenge the body in different ways and watch how it responds

Today I played for two hours, then will go do hot Yoga for an hour later tonight, then spend some time on the inversion table to finish

Thanks for asking and keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to others

Thank you for being an inspiration to me to stay fit and healthy as an older adult. I have to remember I can't play team sports like a teenager. That is the competitive side of me. My mind  says you can move like a teenager when playing basketball, soccer, and street hockey. However, my body says your an old man.....you will get hurt if you try to keep up with the youngsters. It sucks getting old. 

Keep me posted in your daily workouts. Enjoy reading and learning something new about fitness and golf.

A wise old Indian chief  called his son over to tell him the story of two dogs. Two dogs were born at the same time. One was a very friendly and trainable while the other was not trainable and very hostile. After a short period of time. the old India chief asked his son,  Which one survived. 

sensing this was a trick question, his son smartly said he did not know.

The wise old Indian replied : The one that was fed

The hardest part of change is to give ourselves credit for the steps we take and not to compare ourselves to what others are doing or what we used to be able to do. It is a series of I cans that are strung together back to back over time that lead to our success. Good Job !

    • I've mentioned before how I haven't taken many lessons and I don't have a coach which is true, but that doesn't mean that I haven't read a lot about golf and philosophies regarding teaching. Here's a list of some of the books I've read.   The Search For The Perfect Swing This is an interesting book, it's pretty technical and scientific so a lot of it is tough to apply to your own game. The most interesting part of this book was the tests they did on compression, grooves, putting and stances of pro players compared to amateurs. This is what sparked my idea that to play good golf, you need to be in a very consistent starting position. (stance). How can you expect consistency if you aren't addressing the ball the same every time? Ben Hogan 5 Lessons The "bible" for golf instruction. I used to live and die by this book when I was younger but now not so much. It's meh. Too technical. The best part of this book was the plane of glass theory, certainly something I use regularly in my practice and swing. Ben Hogan Power Golf The "little known" Ben Hogan book which was written before his 5 lessons. I think this book is more valuable, it talks about how to play under different conditions and it goes into detail about how Hogan played short irons and long irons. That was the most interesting part of the book, I learned that short irons should be played differently than long irons. I also learned that having a slightly open stance for short irons helps with control. Jack Nicklaus Golf My Way I like this book a lot, I love the parts that talk about the mental game and how to think your way around the course. I also like the parts that Jack talks about how he was taught golf. Jack Nicklaus The Greatest Game Of All Time This is MUCH better than Golf My Way, this book talks more about Jacks careers and how he moved up the ranks. The stories are great and give you an insight into what it takes to play pro golf. My favourite part was the beginning Chapters where Jack talks about how he learned golf, how Jack Grout taught him and his approach to tournaments. This is a must have book. George Knudson The Natural Swing Meh. I loved this book when I was younger but I never really got better from reading it and applying the principles. Knudson is probably one of my favourite players but his book never really clicked with me. Harvey Pennick Little Red Book A decent book, the anecdotes are great and he has some great bite-sized advice to playing better golf. I like how simple Harvey made golf. I remember one part of the book that talks about how the motion you make when you use a trimmer to cut grass is the same one you make in golf "chop the heads off the dandelions." Byron Nelson Black Book A good book, even though its relatively short. It's basically a bunch of journal entries and stats that Byron kept of his game. The little bits of wisdom are nice too. My favourite part though was where Byron wrote down that he shot an 84 at a tournament, it made me feel less bad when I shot a high 80 in mine. Byron Nelson Winning Golf This book is kind of like Jacks Golf My Way but it's shorter. Byron has some interesting advice in this book but none of it really stuck with me, his main bit of advice was to use the legs. Butch Harmon The Pro: Lessons About Golf and Life from My Father, Claude Harmon, Sr. I loved this book. Claude Harmon was one of the few men that Hogan took advice from. This book made me realize that I need a coach and that I need to make the game simpler, not harder. Other parts of the book I enjoyed was where Butch was talking about what it was like to be the swing coach for Tiger and Butch talks about just how much willpower Tiger had. Tiger essentially changed his swing around the peak of his dominance because he wanted it to be better. It was a big commitment and ultimately it payed off, even though at first Woods struggled. I enjoyed learning about how Tiger practiced and the focus he had. He wouldn't leave until the shot was perfect, Butch said. This is an attitude I adopted to my own practice, I won't stop working on something until I perfect it. Jack Grout  Not so much a golf instruction book, it reads more like a novel but it's very interesting because it talks about Jacks relationship with Nicklaus and how he coached him. This book made realize what type of relationship I should look for with a coach. Another thing I learned was how to practice and make practice time worth it. Education Of A Golfer This is my favourite book I have ever read on golf. Sam Snead's philosophy regarding golf and how he used "feel" to teach him how to play really stuck with me. He also said had he have gotten all tangled up in mechanics and theory he wouldn't have been able to play a lick. This is probably the only golf book that really made a difference with my game. There's not a single part of it that I didn't learn from. I love Knudson, Hogan, Woods but Snead is the guy I resonate the most with.  Oh really? I thought shooting par basically means I'm pro...right? What if I shoot par on a 9100 yard course? That should be good enough right?

    • Are you talking about 2018 and 2002? The strength of field argument is a better one than the whole scoring, Tiger-proofing, technology argument. IMHO Tiger would have kicked the shit out of everyone in his prime, if everyone was required to use wooden woods and balata golf balls. Or even if he would've happened to stick to persimmon woods longer. There goes the technology argument. Tiger-proofing is Technology Proofing, null, Scoring, nice take, no, scoring hasn't changed that much. The greens were a helluva a lot slower is Nicklaus's prime, and I mean turf-management was trash back in the late 1960s and early '70s. Augusta always looked great because in a lot of ways they were ahead of the curve. But that isn't even the point. Jack didn't even really have "elite" level competition until the late '70s. I mean seriously you might as well call his win at the '71 PGA, the Who Are You Championship, the first "real major" I think Jack had a decent field in was the 1975 Masters, and even that was that was 20 decent players and 25 or 30 mid-level to lower-level pros who made the cut. Tiger won his first Masters over basically has-beens and who's this guy (if you look at the top-ten) Tom Kite finished 2nd and everyone else I'd never even heard of on TV before the '97 Masters. Hell, all four majors of the Tiger Slam, had better fields than all 18 of Jack's majors combined.  Yes, the OWGR didn't make it's debut until 1986 so it is hard to say what the fields were like with statistical evidence, unless well we can try to do it retroactively, but I don't know how we'd be able to do that. Needless to say. Let x= Average Strength Of Field of Jack Nicklaus's major championships Let y= Average Strength Of Field of Tiger's major championships 15y > 18x everyday of the week. If 15y > 18x, then 15/81 > 18/73 Tiger is the GOAT... based on the facts given.
    • Yes I have ongoing issues with my driver always had a fade issue then after a break of 5 months I had a draw to pull issues .. I know it's a just a matter of putting time on the range and working on the basics for me then after around 100+ drives over a couple of practice sessions at the range I get some really good repeat drives ... but then my putting or the short game goes on me AAARRGHHH  But that's why it's such an addictive game for all us players that take it seriously because it's a hard game that when it does click and you feel 10 foot tall and bulletproof ... 
    • This is the same clown that told another dreamer (5 handicap at 27 years old) to f$#@ it, just go for it.  Beside the foul language and atrocious grammar, he’s making it up as he goes. Walter Mitty. Playing even or 1 under from 6900 yards won’t make a cut on any pro tour. That’s Tour Champions distance. Roll on out 7200 to 7500 and count em up.  Even a 58 year old fart like me plays 6500-6800 yards.  This bravado and zero results are a waste.  Young man, grow up.
