Your Workout Today


Recommended Posts

I tried to workout at lunch after donating blood this morning. NOT a good idea.

The only workout I can think of is drinking non-alcoholic fluids. Put on some sweats and get something like Jamba Juice. This way you can at least look like you worked out. :beer:

Yesterday I mowed my large and steep front lawn, not on a riding mower.  Then I succumbed to two gin & tonics.  I thought about riding my bike for 8 miles but went to the range instead and hit a b

It was over 100F this morning after the turn, it felt like a Sauna with the humidity. It was borderline disgusting. On the positive note, the grass is growing a lot faster where there is irrigation. Possibly the point of contention on the green aeration issue.

It feels like 109F according to the weather report, but I think it's only 104F. :whistle:

We need to drink more :beer: to cool down. This is almost a Coors Lite Day. Almost.

Sounds great!  What kind of load and load progression are you using with your squats?  If you are using a load, where are you positioning the load? What kind of speed? How many reps?  Are you also making golf swings between/after your squat sets?

That is asking a lot of information there. I have one question, why would you be making golf swings between/after squat sets?

Great question! As a physical therapist working with golfers for over 30 years (1st physical therapist on the PGA Tour), a common complaint coming from golfers who tried other strength and conditioning programs before working with me was that they felt like they are getting stronger from their previous conditioning program BUT they weren't experiencing measurable performance results (more distance, accuracy, consistency, lower scores, etc.) on the course.  However, when we added golf-specific swing re-education drills (especially when watching in front of a mirror) between and after sets of their custom exercises they would then immediately see better results in their ball striking and overall performance.

It was more of a high rep day. Did 7 sets of 3 reps at 135lbs for the back squats. In between each set I was doing 1-2 deadlifts at 225lbs.

No golf swings in between but have been doing some practice at home. Trying to do 20-30 reps of this one drill.

Not sure if this is the right place for this. I started working out a week ago, let's see if it will last, I will reward myself after a month without missing a day. But I know really nothing about excercise. But yesterday was a leg day and I went to the course today and couldn't swing very well because I was so sore. Squatting to line up putts and syncing everything up was a struggle. And my armpit area was still sore from a few days before. So how do you golf when you are sore, I'm not sure I can workout if I'm not gonna be able to swing a club

Being sore is just normal, especially if it's something you're new to. As you workout more you won't get as sore as you are now. Pros workout all the time, heavy weights too and they have no problem playing, your body will adapt.

Yep. ↑

About two weeks ago I did walking lunges for the first time in a year. My legs were sore for about a week. I do leg exercises like squats, deadlifts and KB swings. Lunges just work different areas of the quads and really work the inner thigh area do to the balance required. So, even someone who works out regularly, just switching up exercises can cause discomfort.

I actually play a lot of basketball. And I coach it too. I also have a gym membership, but to be honest, I'm doing well if I even go twice a week. I usually stick to once a week but I know I need to go more or else it's getting cancelled. Basketball is my main source of exercise and I can get pretty sore from a good session. Lots of cardio, lots of jumping and footwork. I'm really glad I do it, I haven't felt this good in a really long time.

    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.  
    • Day 157.  I spent ten minutes hitting balls with my 6-iron indoors.  I'll be playing tomorrow, and I would have liked to get out to practice chipping and putting on a real green, but it wasn't in the cards for today's plans.  I am glad I at least got some practice in, though.  Hmm... I see Boogie did Superspeed.  I'm not sure why I put mine away a few months ago, but I need to get them back out and get back to it.
    • Day 35 (31 Jul 21) - easy day of working on trial arm position thru the swing.  I tend to under rotate (hips stop, arms try to carry the load), this drill forces the hips to keep going, taking the trunk with it.  
    • The real truth is that I'm probably the annoying playing partner. I both suck and still get mad anyway. That said, very few people really annoy me. I guess the ones that move ahead of where my ball landed because they didn't realize I was so far behind them annoy me. ... Also the guys that try to give me advice in the middle of the round bother me. ... Most people don't do either.
