  1. Hi Everyone. I have recently purchased the Superspeedgolf.com training aids. The idea of this speed over training is to get your body to break through some swing speed barriers to add speed to your swing and therefore increase driver distance. I plan to update this with thoughts, results, photos, the odd video, to show you an honest review as I try to ramp up the speed with the big stick. Stay tuned.
  2. I know a lot of you may not be all that interested, but I wanted to start logging my dietary changes and workouts on here for a little accountability. Backstory: I was fairly athletic throughout all of my teenage years. I got hooked on BMX at an early age and stuck with it (in some shape or form) until my mid 20's. I hit the course about once a week with my dad, played soccer, and took a strength and conditioning class during my Freshman and Sophomore years of high school. Fitness was never really an issue until I moved to a small town in the middle of Kansas to be closer to my wife wh
  3. Putting myself out there a little bit on this one; I'll bet my workout routines look a lot different from most of the folks on these forums. Mark Rippetoe is a prominent strength coach, and had Jay Livsey (who has been on some of the smaller tours I believe) on his podcast talking about how the best way to get fit for golf is to be really strong. Apologies (and warning) in advance, coarse language in the video. And Mark in general is a pretty abrasive personality. But I do think there's a lot of truth here, and am curious to hear some of y'all's perspectives on the video! Also, you can sk
  4. Hey guys! With the New Year just around the corner, I wanted to gauge how many of my fellow MGS-ers would be interested in a Fitness Challenge for 2019! It would be geared towards getting ready for the new golf season (for us cold weather folks) or for gaining that extra edge right now (for those who are lucky enough to get to play year-round). Feel free to respond to the poll for me whether you would be interested or not! I'd have to charge a little bit for it since it would take a fair amount of work for me to put it all together, but it would be pretty low-cost I would incl
  5. Hello peeps! If you have a second, stop by my page and vote on my latest poll regarding your thoughts on joining a fitness challenge at the start of the New Year! Would love to get a group together on here. I appreciate all the feedback. Kameron
  6. Hey guys! My name is Kameron from Wyoming. I've been a guest here for a little while and just decided to join the community! The love/hate relationship with golf seems to be present throughout the community, so I couldn't feel more at home. My love for golf has grown the past 8 years or so along with my love for movement and fitness. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with a Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology and Health Promotion. These two things combined have prompted me to create personalized golf conditioning programs aimed at conditioning every skill leve
  7. As we get close to spring here in Wisconsin I wanted to post about a new (for me) fitness program I tried out this winter: Kai Fitness for Golf. The DVD is from 2012, but I haven't seen many reviews online for it. A lot of detailed program info is given on the website kaifitnessforgolf.com so I'll mainly focus on my own experiences. A little background info on me. As I approach 40 I've been trying to be more consistent in my fitness. I've gone through quite a few exercise programs the last few years (P90X3, Hammer and Chisel, Daily Burn Live to Fail, etc) but get bored easily and
  8. I'm working on my fitness, don't really have time to go to a gym but I've taken up cycling and it's helping me to shed some weight. So, I have a decent winter fitness plan in place. Where I'm a bit lost, as someone who's never had formal golf instruction (aside from a 6 lesson stint 8 years ago), is what exactly to do during the winter golf-wise. So, I have access to an indoor putting/chipping facility and heated hitting bays. Further, there is a new TopGolf going in nearby. My thought is that I would try to get to one of these facilities 3 times a week throughout the winter. Howe
  9. As most of us will shortly be having the above view, I ask..........what are your winter "golf" plans? In my quest for scratch, I'm implementing a new winter plan that is specific to my game. Below will outline my weekly/permanent routine. 1. I will be cutting out alcohol 2. 1 hour of yoga and 1 hour of cardio every day 3. Hit at least 250 balls per week at an indoor range 4. Improved diet. (limit red meat, bad carbs, sugar, etc) 5. Research/practice implementing a better mental approach to the game Hopefully this will greatly aid in my quest for scratch. Do you have a winte
  10. I'm not playing today due our first real cold front of the season. Windy too. So, I've been thinking about this past year and my golf game specifically. What did I accomplish? Where did I fail? What can I do differently in 2016 to better my game, etc, etc. Thinking, thinking. In January 2015 I decided I'd make a real effort to improve my game. How was I going to do this you ask? Three ways that I figured would certainly help. 1. Start taking lessons/coaching - more focused practice. 2. Drop a few pounds and improve my diet. 3. Start and maintain a weekly stretching program. Lessons/coachi
  11. I'm coming into my 4th golf season this year, and while I have improved each year I still feel like I am not playing up to my potential. I have yet to break 100 and I have a handicap of 32. None of this I am ashamed about but I want to become better. The past 2 years I've been taking lessons at Golftec and they have helped my swing tremendously. Pairing that with some natural athletic ability has me hitting the golf ball far but not necessarily playing better over a full 18 holes. So this season I am taking a different approach. Instead of just casually getting ready for the season I've decide
  12. Welcome To The Beginning Of The Season, Now Be Careful! How's that for a backhanded invitation? I know that many of you are on the verge of digging out of the drifts and getting on the course for the first time this year. You will have a great time! Your swing may be winter-rusty, but who cares, you are finally playing golf. For some of you, opening weekend at the course means 18, or maybe 36 holes a day. Your brain is fiending for more and more golf. Give it what it wants. Winter really sucked this year! Then on Monday, you'd get out of bed and hope to ditch work and play agai
  13. Dave's Fitness Gadget Review: Nike+ Fuelband SE http://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/nikeplus-fuelband How's That New Year's Resolution Going? As we approach the end of January, we enter the time when 84.2% of people who made fitness resolutions on January 1st have already given that resolution up. I totally made up that number, but we all know that resolutions fall away when put to the steel of our daily lives. No one sets out to fail, but changing one's fitness patterns is difficult. How do I know this? Have you been reading my fitness thread? That first post is a testament to the chal
