Your Workout Today

Back today.

Depending on how I'm feeling, I may try to 1 rep up my whole olympic set (300 lbs) on the deadlift.

It will determine if I need to buy more weight soon. Mwahahahaha

(May end up in hospital)

Pulled it up twice with no worries. Time to buy more plates. Hammies are feeling good today....

Goal is 2.5x my bodyweight. So assuming I get back down to 160 soon, that would be 400 even.

Chest and Shoulders today. The best.

Nice dude, I'm working to pull 300 by the end of the year.

My work out today consisted of chopping 1/2 cord of fire wood. I will do the same thing once a week for the next 6 weeks. Not sure how that will relate to my golf swing, but I don't think it will cause too much harm. The beer afterwards is the best part. :beer:

Is that dangerous for the back with that much weight, going so heavy with few reps?

Not as long as the form is good. I was just testing my 1 rep max, not something I would do every week...but there's nothing wrong with it as long as you have a lot of experience with the specific exercise.

Nice.  Get a video of the 400 lb pull.

Due to a recent bout of injuries from being so out of shape, I think I'll start doing pull-ups and push-ups. I have a Yaniro board from my rock climbing days, and some metolius rings to do some pull-ups. I doubt I'll ever do front levers again, but at least I need to get in some semblance of shape. No more cerveza workouts any more. :-X

Rolled my shoulder with a tennis ball. The muscle right in the armpit felt extremely painful from overworking it. The rolling made it feel good enough to make some swings. Switched to using my old Burner 1.0 irons so it does not put as much stress on this muscle.

Planning on doing pullups once possible without pain.

Worked on my deadlift form today. I tend to have my hips too high at the start and the back can get rounded. So focused on the following cues.

- Start with my shins about 1 inch away from the bar

- Drop my knees forward and out until the shins touch the bar. This gets my tailbone down.

- Pack my lats. This gets my chest up, back flattish.

- Then push the ground away from me keeping the bar in contact with my legs.

Anyone else feel or work on pieces like this? It feels like more of the weight is towards my heels and like I'm "falling back". Definitely felt it more in my glutes.

5x5 145 lbs

5x5 Sumo 145

5x3 205

3 pull ups or chin ups between each set.

I've fortunately never had a problem with deadlift form. Squats on the other hand...

Yes, I have been working on this too.  I can tell by how sore my back is the next day if I rounded my back during the lifts.  Yes, feeling the glutes tighten is my indicator that I have good form.

Just like golf, we all have our own priorities. Never had to worry much with squat form, sometime right right knee likes to cave in as I'm coming up but always been good with starting my squat with my hips.

Thanks. Did some more form work this morning and it felt pretty good. The cues to pack my lats and feeling the bar ride up my shins seems to really help.

    • 1) I agree but I also think it should be up to the course designer to very carefully think through which depressions are for so called everyday use and which are not. Heavy storm is an extreme example and I would not use a lot of effort to deal with cases such as that but would rather put the focus on depressions where water is frequently present and that fulfil the Definition with regard to collecting and directing water. 2) Now that is rather self-evident, don't you think? It is the criteria what I am after here. This is one of those issues in golf that have no B&W solution and that is why I took it up as it is good to gather many different opinions and I believe that is why people like You and me bother to spend our time on forums like this. Or what do you think?
    • Oh the irony of paying for the highest tech with the lowest tech..!   EDIT: I was thinking of tying a bundle of cash to a falcon.. heh. 
    • Here's the first definition I found online: "a long narrow excavation dug in the earth (as for drainage)" This shallow and moderately wide (in comparison to the depth) depression doesn't fit, in my mind.  I agree that "open watercourse" gives lots of latitude, but I don't believe its intended to include every depression of any kind that holds or carries water in a heavy storm.  To me, unmarked areas are Penalty Areas only when they clearly fit one of the definitions.  Borderline areas, depressions like in the photo we've been looking at, should be considered Penalty Areas only when a Committee chooses to define them as such.
    • Dave, how would you define a ditch? How deep / wide / long must it be to be a ditch and not a depression? Must it not be grass-covered? Something else? The term 'other open watercourse' gives lots of latitude IMO...
