Attached is my winter training plan (The attahcement is coloured in its full glory). TI am working on changing my swing to a new style (Moe Norman style single plane) so need to work on putting, full swing and pitching. I have set it up as block periodized with 7 week mesocycles. In the weeks that say technical those will be primarily slow work trying to hammer down the finer points of the skill followed by a technique week where I add more constraints to make it more game like followed by a week that will primarily game like with lots of constraints (ie diff targets, hitting it shorter longer etc.) My chipping and pitching is the best part of my game so it got one cycle while full swing and putting got two. Putting is the worst part of game so thats why put it closest to the start of the season so I could peak that right before the season starts.
If you are somebody who knows about periodization or just have some advice on whether what I have done here will work to improve all aspects of my game in the long term I would appreciate it. I've thrown everything I know about periodization, distributed learning and interleaving at it from my teaching background. I'm hoping others might give me their honest opinion on my plan. I am only going on what I have read and researched so any comments and criticism is welcome.

Let me offer a couple of suggestions that may not make sense at first. I do not think it is a good idea for heavier people to run. One it is hard on the body.
You are pounding down on the knees and joints. Believe it or not you can increase your resting heart rate by deep breathing. Mine is between 38 and 43. I do Yoga and practice Deep breathing.
Now I have been doing this for many years, but I suggest going to youtube and find a video on deep breathing and start a practice. If you want to drop some weight change your diet. Eat more salads and plant based foods. Hope this helps
I meant that my hands don't have to follow each other and aren't locked together when off the club. I was able to roll my left wrist a bit over the top and it is not affecting my right hand. I am, however not locking my fingers as much anymore. They're still locked, but not as pronounced.
