  1. Not this guy 😃 Bought an Olympic barbell set and a power rack to go with my old bench and dumbbells. Still need to get a cable pull down attachment, but it’s out of stock. I’ll probably pick up a rack for the plates because stacking them up on the floor is going to get old fast. I might even get a mat for the floor and put some hooks on the wall to hang my resistance bands. There’s a stability ball brand new in the box buried behind the tote bag. The sky’s the limit - well actually my low ceiling is, it’s 81”. My entire basement smells like industrial rubber right now.
  2. I am coming back from a long term injury in my lower back. I am literally starting from scratch. I was playing at a 2 handicap when I had to stop and now it's been 14 months since I've played a complete round of golf with a score. My 2020 goals are to improve my fitness to a level commensurate with (amateur) tournament golf, rebuild my swing from the ground up focusing on driving distance and proximity to the hole on approach shots, and of course putting stats. These goals are in no particular order so my question is where would each of you start and what would be a reasonable expectation for
  3. I'm a 48 year old male and currently carry a .4 index. I started playing at ~18 and caught the bug in a big way. I've long been a student of the swing, but I always relied on my natural athleticism (and youth) to allow me to get my body to perform. I typically run +1 to 1 here in Wisconsin at my home course, and I've re-built my swing twice before this year. But I'm definitely getting older, and I had never lifted weights or committed to a work-out regimen in my life. So, in May, I committed to getting into the best shape of my life by 50. For the past 7 months I've been going to a personal tr
  4. Hey everyone! I am new to TST and looking for suggestions for new golf fitness exerciseses. Particularly looking for great core exercises, anti-rotation exercises and overall just good suggestions. What are your favorites?
  5. I saw a commercial the other day for the Callaway GolFit and it had me interested. So after browsing around all day yesterday I ended up stuck between that and the Garmin Approach X40. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with either unit. It would be neat to tie in the fitness and GPS into one watch device. Both look sleek and don't appear to get in the way when golfing. The Garmin has a few more features and is on sale for $199. The Callaway is $149. Looking like it might be an after Xmas present for myself!
  6. There has been much discussion on this Forum about functional fitness and how it works better for golf than isolation training, so I thought I would introduce some exercises to test the core strength and balance of those who wish to feel what this is like. My thanks to Michael Reik, a scratch golfer from Milwaukee Wisconsin,who been doing a program I teach, for volunteering to demonstrate these exercises and for proving that it is possible to gain strength, add mobility, and balance to your body using the bodies own weight and leverage. It is my experience that many people find it
  7. Went out to play last week and temperature was about 70* with breeze and overcast. I was starting to sweat a bit with a windshirt on, so I took it off and went with short sleeves. About a hole later, I felt a cramp between shoulderblades. I had trouble loosening up. On tee shot I hooked the ball, and followed up with a bad push. Did some stretches and swang SKLS Golf Flex like a baseball bat, but cramp persisted. Next hole was a par 3, so I just punched an iron shot low and chipped on. I put the windshirt back on, cramp went away, but I started sweating again. Anybody experience
  8. 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!
  9. While I agree a lot of this stuff happens in a good golf swing, don't buy into the thinking that you need to be an "elite" athlete in order to perform these movements to make a good golf swing. I wouldn't call guys that played in the 50's and 60's elite athletes but they all made full turns and rotated their body's on a steep enough angle. The article does bust the myth of "restricting" your lower body in the golf swing. Basically the whole thing is how important the lower body is to making a functional golf swing. They also mention that anterior tilt (S posture) makes it harder to tu
