Enjoyed reading your post. Thank you. Your posts make me reflect on why am I working out so much. Experienced some hardships four years ago. I guess working out makes me forget about the past and move forward.

After hitting the weights twice a week consistently for the past two months, I’m feeling pretty good (I have no worries if I don’t push reps at heavy weights anymore, but finally at least stronger again than I was in high school haha).

Today, did 3 sets 8 reps of hang cleans at 205, with ease.  Also got 9 reps at 225 on the bench press.

My wife started a new beach body workout this morning. She shamed me into giving it a shot this evening. I thought I was in pretty good shape until attempting this workout. Looks like something I’m going to keep doing.

you probably are in pretty good shape, just not for that workout. I am in good shape, but when I started playing Pickle ball, I strained my hamstring twice. Anytime we start working different muscle groups they have adjust. and that is why it is good to vary our routine.

Thanks for sharing

I learned a valuable lesson on Thursday.  Do not do a full hour of Pilates before playing.  Today I can barely lift my arms over my head.

    • Played my first 18 holes since late 2014 today.  I shot a 106 (66.2 / 117), which I was really surprised by.  I actually shot better on the back 9, which is the opposite of what I used to do.  I used to play 9 holes almost exclusively and stretching it to 18 seemed to just fatigue me and it showed on the scorecard.  My son (12) and I had a great time.  I scored 2 pars, should of had another 1-2.  There were so many stupid strokes on the card.  6 penalties, 2 3-putts, 2 times I took 2 strokes in the same bunker, on top of your normal duff/skull from a weekend warrior.  It makes me feel really good, because through all of that it felt like I was on track for 120, not 106.  It tells me I'm not that far away from the mid 90s again.  When I played a lot (2-3 9s a week about 6-8 years ago) I'd normally shoot between 42 and 45 like clockwork.  Granted this new course is slightly tougher with tighter fairways, I feel like I'll be back to a place where I'm shooting respectable scores. Where I'm struggling most, like I was in 2012-2014, is distance.  I simply don't hit the ball that far.  It makes playing even somewhat forward tees (3rd set from the back) really tough.  I tracked a few of my better drives (3w, I have no control over the 1w) and on a great shot I was only getting 200-210 out of it.  My 5i is about 155 and my 7i is about 135.  A 375 yard par 4 is common and nearly impossible for me to reach in 2.  If I actually wanted to go for it, I'd need to pull a 4h for my second shot.  That's just not good for me, so I'll hit 3w, AW, AW, to give me an opportunity for a 1-putt par or more likely a 2-putt bogey.  A 350 yard par 4 will at least let me go 3w, 5i.  So yes, I'm dealing with that.  I need to figure out where to get 10 yards throughout the bag, or learn how to hit a 1w with some confidence.  I'm sure newer technology would help, but my clubs (Taylormade Burner 2.0) aren't that old.  I have noticed that newer sets have a 7i loft where my 5i is.  That makes me wonder, is it as hard to hit that new 5i as it is for me to hit my current 3i (as they'd have the same loft)?

    • Good read. I've never thought about utilizing a reverse K setup for anything other than the driver. I'd imagine the magnitude of the hip shift forward is quite a bit less when applied to the iron setup versus the driver.  What do you think about the idea of simultaneously adopting this slight setup change while beginning to work on adding some "flow" in an attempt to minimize the obvious pitfall of making the sway much too pronounced?
    • I play in a league which has people who play from the "regular" tees and then some who are over 60 who play from the "senior" tees.   With the way the World Handicap System is today, you just use whatever handicap they have from whichever set of tees they are playing. That way we don't discourage anyone who wants to play from playing.    
    • For a while now I’ve noticed that many low and plus handicappers falsify their handicaps just to get in tournaments.  I’m sure many people on this forum have read about this or even know people who do this.  On occasion I see several players that shoot anywhere from 85 and upwards.  How is this possible?  I look up their handicaps (if I can find them) and am surprised the +2, +3 and plus 4’s are shooting these type of scores.  Maybe it was bad weather, maybe the course didn’t fit their game?  But what really catches my eye is that many of these players don’t post scores.  I’ve seen a few that haven’t posted a score in over a year.  It just doesn’t seem right that these players are allowed entry into these tournaments.  It also seem wrong that those who run these tournaments even allow them entry?   I’m sure there’s some reason.  I was once told that many ranked amateurs don’t post a score due to their amateur ranking. Some don’t post as they are playing for a scholarship and need the ranking.  True or false I don’t know. ....what are your thoughts on this? Who cares? It doesn’t matter?
