Congrats to the new Father's out there!

I most definitely need an offseason. I moved to San Diego so I could play year round, but after 2 years, I need a break for a few months to recharge the batteries.

Tonight:

1/2 mile run
100 KB swings
1/2 mile run

no real "off season" here in virginia and because there is less farm work to do i actually play more golf in the winter. my routine is ~ 3 rounds of golf a week and ~ 5 days of putting practice. putting practice is 100 putts playing a round of perfect putt 360. i'm also working on my core doing crunches, push ups, and some light yoga.

You might think about adding some Russian Twists into your routine. They are excellent at building the core muscles you use in disc golf.

I am just starting my winter routine. I try to completely change it up every 6 weeks but for now I am doing-

15-30 mins of cardio followed immediately by a dumbbell(and other) workout consisting of and in current order every other day-

each group is done in a circut
pull ups-doing about 3 sets of 5 right now- trying to work up to 30ish
dips - 3 sets of 10 - on off days I do around 200-300 push ups

side lifts - 4 sets of 8 -these get mixed in the other groups

Incline benches with dumbbells 3x8
rows 3x8

crunches and variations - 150ish

usually the whole thing takes me around an hour to an hour and a half

on off days I golf if the weather is great or just crunches or maybe even a day off.


After a few more weeks of this I think I will go to a Kettlebell routine for a few weeks.

I am still playing as many rounds as I can. I also have developed a nightly 30 minute workout at home that I try and do at least 4 times a week. I also have gotten back into Rock Climbing which I am finding has incredible benefits to my disc golf game.

Exercise bike few times a week.
yoga maybe 1 time every week or two.
Ab workout 2 times a week.

Just started a bands workout instead of lifting weights. Seems to be going really well and ive noticed a difference in my game. The workout uses bands you can get anywhere,,,has like 10 different exercises and i go through all of them at once as a circuit without a break. 3 sets total.

reverse fly is a great exercise for disc golf.

It's hard for me to get back into a workout routine since my shoulder is still missed up, but some Yoga and lots of core work will help

In addition to my running, I added a new workout routine. My wife for her birthday just got a Kinect for my XBox along with the Nike+ training game. It's been pretty sweet, we each have our own virtual trainer that runs us through ~30 minute workouts.

My workouts seem to be geared towards three things: building knee and ankle stability (awesome because I've injured both playing basketball in recent years) and core strength. Combine that with the improved cardio-vascular strength I'm getting from running and I'm going to be a machine in the Spring!

hrmm rock climbing, that actually sounds really beneficial for DG. Really builds your grip strength and is an awesome workout for the whole body. I haven't done any climbing in years. although my climbing experience is limited to home made rock wall in barns and garages :P
