Living in the Northeast, the off season starts in late November. Since that time, I dedicated myself to building my obliques and upper back muscles. This weekend my hard work is paying dividends. I picked up at least 10 yards off the tee. 

So do those planks and most importantly the side planks!

  • RandallT changed the title to Oblique Muscles : The Forgotten Sides

There are numerous exercises that work these muscle groups. I spent most of my time doing side planks. 

Start off trying to hold them for 15 seconds each side and complete two sets. 

Over time increase your holding time to 25 seconds. When you feel you are ready try to raise your hips in the side plank position. 

Let me if you try this and your progress. Will share other exercises over the next week.

    • In reality, 10 year old irons especially GI irons really aren’t much different then their new counterparts. Realistically you might gain a yard. And your dispersion might be a little tighter. You can upgrade, but it’s Indian not the arrow. I just bought a left handed pitching wedge from Goodwill for a buck... just to mess around with... A good fitting is important and essential don’t get wrong. But when all is said an done, lessons and then a good fitting with improve your game.
    • Hello and welcome to TST. What one may gain from updating clubs can vastly vary. Club head technology has certainly improved with the ability to get the ball in the air and to be a bit more forgiving than older models. The shaft plays a very important role as well, maybe even more important which is why a fitting can be very beneficial. As far as expectations…hard to say. But at the very least you’ll know you’re optimizing one area of your game by having the best irons for you. Cheers.
    • Unless you have undergone swing changes I wouldn't expect any change at all.  The lofts might be stronger which could make you think you've gained distance when you haven't. 10 year old cavity back irons of good quality aren't much different from brand new ones. Your golf doesn't improve when you get new irons unless you were playing something with the wrong shaft or clubs with little or no built-in forgiveness.
    • That’s up to the respective governments to determine. Many countries only require proof of a negative test. 
    • I am sure that it wouldn't be mandated. I don't think one should be allowed to travel internationally without proof of vaccination.
