  1. Great workout yesterday and fantastic putting session this morning. I was really annoyed with how Monday's session went and I was doubting my putting stroke, my putter, my grip etc. The inner club-ho in me was looking at what putter to buy next, but today allowed me to step back and not make such drastic changes. Hoping to build on today's work and keep progressing.

  2. Another great workout yesterday and I'm really starting to feel stronger and healthier. Starting to dial in the diet as well, so I'm really excited to see what I can accomplish over the next few months. Workout is below. This morning I had another putting session and it did not go as well as I had hoped. Our condo is older, so I guess the floor has a natural right to left break, but I just couldn't adjust and that's unacceptable. Thankfully, it's just one session and by keeping track of my stats, I know what I need to work on. Week 9 Day 2 Main Lifts: DB Snatch - 4x5 Se
  3. Thanks for the input! Believe me, form has been a huge area of focus for me. While I'm only 32, I've already learned that lesson the hard way. Chasing after a bigger deadlift, regardless of form, has taught me that form is more important than numbers. I made sure to start off nice and light with this program and whenever I feel my form breaking down, I reset the weights by 10-15% and build back up. Thanks again for checking in and I will be sure to cherish each and every moment with the new baby. I still can't get over how much he's grown and he's not even 3 months old!
  4. Had a great workout this morning and looking forward to another putting session tomorrow morning. Starting to hit weights that I haven't touched since college, so that's nice to see.

  5. I've started implementing this stretch as well, and at a minimum, it's definitely loosening up some tightness I have. Haven't tested to see if it is actually helping, but sure can't be hurting!
  6. Woke up early to get some putting practice in. Had a great session and really forced myself to focus on each putt, even though the distances were quite short. As mentioned previously, I'll be focusing on 3'/5'/7' putts (limited space available), and I'll be rotating types of break. This should allow me to hit all types of putts this winter, and really hone in my putting stroke.
  7. Feeling really good about where my strength is right now. I'm also feeling more explosive during my workouts, so I'm really hoping it carries over to golf. Starting to lay out a plan for my putting practice too - so I'm excited to see how that carries over to the course as well. Without going into too many details, plan is to rotate weeks of no break, left-to-right, and right-to-left putts, keeping track of all stats.

  8. Great workout yesterday and broke out the putting mat for a quick practice session while the kid slept. Plan is to try and practice putting every day and keep track of my stats to see what I need to work on and to make sure I'm actually improving. After the first session, the Scotty has reminded me why I bought it, and it has regained the lead spot in the bag. We will see if this is just a honeymoon phase, or if it continues.

  9. Had a great workout this morning. Looking forward to getting some practice in this weekend and hopefully make it onto the course soon.

  10. Thanks for the answer! My training is pretty similar, where I end up putting a generic description, but I've found similar movements to the slams and am liking those so far. Interested to see how it carries over.
  11. Solid workout! Regarding the overtraining, how much sleep/food are you getting? Could just be an off day, or there could be outside factors. I'd see how you feel for the next couple workouts and adjust accordingly. On a side note, how are you liking the ball slams? I don't have access to any, but I've taken some ideas from Fit for Golf and Bill Miller to try and mimic the movement and I'm really liking it so far.
  12. Another day, another workout. Week 7 Day 3 Main Lifts: DB Power Cleans - 5x5 DB Press - 5x5,1x10 Goblet Squats - 5x5,1x10 Accessories (3 sets of each): TRX Pull-ups Kneeling DB Arnold Press Dynamic Push-ups TRX Single Arm Rows DB Curls Split Stance Band Rotations
  13. Putting mat arrived and I can't wait to start using it - first need to get the clubs out of storage though . Knocked out another great workout yesterday, and I'm already excited to see how the KB exercises help out. Not sure I've discussed this, but the main part of my workout revolves around an explosive movement (cleans/snatches), a pressing movement, and squats. I then hit weak areas with accessories and try to focus at least 1 on a more 'golf specific' movement. As always, let me know if you have any questions!

  14. Putting mat should be here this afternoon, along with an adjustable kettlebell (to mix things up). In the meantime, had another great workout today and can't wait to get some swings in soon, to see how the workouts are helping.

  15. Happy anniversary! Nothing wrong with taking a day off - definitely helps with the mental aspect too!
