Just got a pull up bar yesterday. Has probably been a few years since I last attempted a pull-up. Surprised myself and was able to do 4 in a row. That's not that great, but decent starting point for me. 

The important part is that you are starting....

Well, I actually started this several years ago to help another issue I was having, but I do 7-8 minutes of planks. I used to do just straight planks, but read that side planks really help your golf s

I've been doing "Insanity Max: 30" and adding in hikes and some light lifting with the dumbells I have at home.  I do well with regimented routines and schedules.  I've done Beachbody workouts (P90X, Insanity, and now the Max: 30) on and off for over a decade.  Being at home, has enabled me to do a pretty good job of getting my workouts in.  Feel like it's helping with golf as well but it's not golf specific.  I'm 52 years old and would say I'm in pretty decent shape right now.

Yeah I've always said that they are named correctly, insane.  I was just telling my daughter that my abs are actually sore (and tired) from this morning's workout.

With having too much time on my hands, I've come to realize that I am average to slightly below average athletically, even though I am in decent shape. Was doing some tests like vertical jump for example and I was right around the average category. I've never been good at explosive activities like sprints.

Going to see if my workouts improve my performance in these types of tests.

I'm the exact opposite.  I'm all explosive, fast twitch. I've spend my adult years playing volleyball, football, soccer, softball.  I'm in great shape right now but because I'm built for sprinting, I can't run distance at all. Ran a 5k before the shutdown, took me 31 minutes and I was dyin'.  Sometimes I think it hurts my golf game....my tempo gets bad and I get super fast back and forward.  I have such respect for people that run marathons because I don't think I could do it even with lots of training...the genetics just aren't there.

My problem is that I am not on the slow twitch side either. Could never come close to running a marathon with training. I'm somewhere in the middle.

During this time I have been rotating between two different yoga programs one focusing more on flexibility and the other focusing more on strength. I do that everyday alternating between the two. Then for strength I do resistance band workouts because it's something easy to do at home with minimal equipment.

That probably makes you more normal than anything else 🙂  (and that's not a bad thing).

I started doing the insanity workout videos for the past 6 weeks. They have really kicked my butt and increased flexibility. Feeling really good! For the part 17 years I’ve been stuck in the routine of going to the gym and throwing weights around only caring about strength. This change has been a eye opener but I’m now going to check out golf wods

I just did the first day of one of the beginner Golf WOD programs. Wow, that was hard, and I consider myself to be in decent shape. Not sure how someone who is a "beginner" to fitness routine could finish the workout.

Before the COVID breakout I was training for a powerlifting meet. The goal was 600 deadlift, squat 495 and bench 360. I have/had zero cardio. And These workouts burn me. that kinda the point plus its only 3 days a week. Another nice thing is if its to much you can always drop the weights down or lower your intensity. and I 'va had days were I just have no tank to finish the 3rd WOD. But I can say this. It will help ur game and ur overall health and fitness.

Putting the hybrid at home workout stuff to the side for now and going back to supporting a local strongman coach who put out phase 2 of his Coronavirus at home workout. This one has bodyweight or barbell options so throws who have some basic equipment can train with the barbell or if not then follow the boardy weight training.

Hes designed it to be a transition back into gymlife with the hopes we will all be in the gym before the 9 weeks of the program finishes.

I'm coming off shoulder surgery, so my therapist has me doing lots of planks (especially side planks for golf). My TP also recommended some basic stretch band work to keep up on range of motion.

If you've completed 6 weeks of Insanity, you're doing great! I've done Insanity a couple of times. Just completed Insanity Max: 30.  I like these because they are only 30 minutes.  Helps me with time management and motivation.

Just did the first day of the 2nd week of the golf wod beginner program. I think thats the hardest workout i have ever done in my life. 500 jump rope reps is no joke and that is just one of the exercises.

5 workouts into the Golf WOD beginner workout. My take on it is that if you are looking for purely improvement in golf performance, such as higher swing speed, the volume of this program seems to high for maximizing performance. For example, some of the explosive movements are in the workout after running, and with some rounds, you are trying to minimize the amount of time to get through sets and reps.

However, it is awesome for overall fitness, which is important to me as well.

Now have a slight back injury from my golf wod workout this morning, so probably will take the rest of the week off from workouts. These workouts are intense.
