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.

    • I've had between a half dozen and a dozen rounds at my home course this year;  part of that is I moved an hour away in 2019 and hadn't really explored the area.  I'll probably maintain club membership there because I like the group, and I'll look for one around my new home too. I say that because in those 6+ rounds, I've yet to par holes 7, 9, or 12;  I have yet to make a birdie at the course either.  Best-ball score at the course so far in 2021:  74. Earlier today, I played my third round at a course that might become my new home course, or at least my most commonly played course starting soon.  It's the second-closest (not including super expensive or private courses) to my house, an easy drive, and well within my price range.  After three rounds, I have a composite score there of 74, with two birdies in there. On one hand, the new course is easier (lower CR/SR) and a bit shorter, but on the other hand, that's interesting.
    • No new birdies tonight however closed out my league 9 with back to back birdies at 8 and 9. Lipped out the birdie at 7 I thought was in. Didn’t hit a GIR until 7.... took advantage of them tho. Took me a bit to get going after 2 weeks away from golf.
    • That's not a good plan, IMO. Where's your Member Swing topic? I don't see one.
    • Missed my league night on vacation in Virginia Beach last week. Hadn’t played in 2 weeks. Decided to go early and do extra short game work prior to my tee time. I expected to be a little bit off and need my short game. It paid off. I didn’t hit the ball well at all but managed to post a solid score. Right out of the gate I pulled a 9 iron left at 1. Ball on heavy rough, with a green sloping away. Chipped to one foot to save par. Bogey at 2 missed a short save. At 3 I got up and down again. Caught a flyer at 4 and missed a little deep. Made bogey. Up and down at 5. Bogey at 6. Then got hot. Stuck a wedge to 8 feet at 7 and lipped out the putt. Wedge to 6 feet at 8 made birdie. Stuck another wedge to 5 feet at 9 for birdie. Closing birdie birdie got me to +1 for the side. -2 net. Not bad considering I only hit 3 greens in regulation. 13 putts for the side is good for the score card.
    • Just an aside.  Bumped into an old friend on the practice green on Saturday.  Told him I was playing at 9:20 on Monday and that he was welcome to join me.  I let him know I'd be using a power cart because of a torn meniscus. Overnight I start thinking about the guy... a conspiracy theorist, crypto currency guy, etc., etc.  Though he did sell Mercedes' at a dealership once.  How mainstream is that? He shows up Monday morning.  I hop in the cart, clubs strapped in.  In short order Jeff straps on his clubs and hops in.  I say, "Jeff, gotta ask you a difficult and potentially rude question... are you vaccinated?"  "Hell no!"  So I told him I'd pay for a 2nd cart for him.  He was good with that and understood.  Great round... had a lot of fun.  But at 6 feet.
