  2. This is an excellent post. We do not realize that we are training our body all of the time, one way or the other. I always laugh when I see people at the Y looking for that parking spot closest to the entrance and then a half an hour later they emerge wearing jogging pants. One of the things I tell my students is when you walk up stairs grab the railing and just put the ball mount of the foot on the stairs and let the rest hang off. As the heel drops you get a stretch in the calf muscles. You have to go up the stairs anyway, make it to your benefit !
  3. LOL The tittle of this thread is " weightlifting and golf " which says nothing about it being geared toward people interested in lifting or it being pro or con but i will leave you with an old saying. A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
  4. no one has said that ? I would disagree as I read the posts. Obvious ? no it is not obvious. Once again as I read the posts,I don't see any words of caution and that is why I posted my comments. No, safety is never a given. It is something that needs to be brought up consistently. It is essential in my opinion to add a stretching program to any workout that includes heavy weights. Those are my thoughts. Thanks for posting
  5. As a power lifter of 30 years, I can tell you there are several things to watch out for and take into consideration when lifting heavy weights. Number 1 is compression of the spine, It happened to me and it happens to a lot of people as they age. Put a heavy weight on the back of a younger body and you may build strength, but put a heavy weight on the shoulders of a older body or a body that has some spinal or disk weakness and you may be asking for trouble. I meet these people every day and I was one myself. Most have had surgery and had to give up golf. I was fortunate to discover oth
  6. Maybe add some towns to the courses. It would be helpful
  7. I am just not getting the results I want I've been Playing Golf for: 40 years My current handicap index or average score is: 12 My typical ball flight is: not consistent The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: fading the ball too much Videos: attention grab.mp4 - Google Drive
  8. After 30 years of weightlifting and 21 years of doing and teaching different styles of Yoga I feel totally confident and qualified to answer the question of whether weightlifting and golf go together. My experience over all those years has me answer without hesitation that it truly depends on the individual. Some people should not be lifting heavy weights period and are better off using their own body weight to increase strength. This can be for a variety of reasons, but there are many ways of increasing your strength without heavy weights if you are one of those people, especially in
  9. We should always do what works for us. I think the key point you made here which may be over looked by many who read the post is your 3 goals here . 1)Lift weights with the idea of increasing strength, 2) stretch and continually stretch and work on flexibility, and 3) your lifting and stretching must emulate what you need for your activity. Too many people and I have found this in the workout section on this forum, focus only on the first one and minimize the 2nd and 3rd and that gives rise to the idea of not lifting heavy weights. The body is dynamic and needs to be trained that way which m
  10. I think you need to have someone perform an exorcism on that club. It is possessed
  11. yes it has, but so has high fat diets, but it is only recently through new studies and an intro to main stream media that we start to understand the science and it's popularity has grown. It was not long ago when everyone was doing low fat The same is true with Time under Tension. Most people do not understand the concept, the science and the benefits of time under tension. It is not just lowering the weight slowly but to actually set the Gage of improvement by increasing that time. As Thomas says it is much better on the joints as we age. There is a good chance we will be hearing
