Workout

7 posts in this topic

I'm in the process of losing a few lbs and want to now focus my workout routine towards my game.

I currently stand at 60KG and 5"6 (About 20% body fat, aiming to get down to about 15%)

I've started to do press ups(hopefully shift my moobs), sit ups, planks, crunches, squats, leg raises and forearm stuff to hopefully help with my golf and increase my core and lower body strength/balance.

I was wondering if anyone could offer up some advice if this is a good start or if I should be focussing on anything else in particular, or what sort of routine I should be doing these (daily, 2 days on 1 day off etc)

Thanks :)

Basically I'm a huge noob when it comes to this sort of stuff and am fumbling round like a blind man in a dark alley..

Crossfit is the best all around workout program I've seen.  It works on everything (strength, flexibility, endurance, power, speed, and agility) and has done wonders for my golf swing in the 8 months that I've been doing it.  I made a pact with myself to never miss a workout and I've lost 60 lbs during that time.  The workouts are never the same and your body will never "get used" to it.  It will push you bigtime but the important part is to keep showing up and doing the work and you will get results.

I would incorporate as many core and rotational exercises as you could. Also, do some exercises where you stand on one foot and have to balance on that foot. Make sure you are using good form to prevent injury.

I agree, core is huge. For most of us, we sit around all day. For me, even if i do a day of cardio, i end it with a 15 min sesson of ab work. We can walk all day, but get an 8 hour desk job, and your core area just suffers.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
