Offseason work - preparing for 2013
Most of us choose disc golf because it's fairly easy, no running, no catching....it's a fairly lazy sport. Well couch potatoes, typing on a keyboard will only get you so far. Time to put in work.

What are you doing to get better at disc golf?

Post your workouts, books, rituals etc here. I want to hear it and encourage those who desire to get better to become better.

Last night:

5 rounds
135lb deadlift x5
50 yard sprint

Until daylight savings time begins in March, any sort of after work disc golf is out of the question. So on weekends when the temperature is somewhat tolerable (which will be rare for the next three months), I'll do some putting practice in the back yard.

For me, the winter is more about mental rest. It's nice to take a bit of a break and take some time to look ahead to next year. I'm already starting to think about planning my tourney schedule, making some changes to the lineup in my bag, etc.

For actual workouts, I'm doing a lot of running, but for non-disc golf reasons. Specifically for disc golf, I'm going to start doing some general ab work to strengthen my core.

Speaking of Mental, pushing those limits is a fantastic way to become more confident on the course.

In terms of core, TRX and Kettlebells are fairly simple ways to get stronger.

No off-season here.

At any rate, I'm not doing anything to try to get better. But I'm working hard to slow my decline.

Doing an overall weight loss and muscle building routine from Bodybuilding.com at the moment.
Off days, I do Plyometrics to help my explosiveness. In 4 weeks, I will be starting a HIT program to shred fat and increase endurance.

Weightlifting x3/week
DGing once every other week

I might take up the towel drill again on a slowed down basis in order to try to work on body positioning

I will keep up putting practice...unfortunately that will be in the basement so no wind to deal with but I can do 10 - 34ish feet
WRT putting I think I will stick to scoobies, I'm more accurate

exercise, hmmm, maybe
we have a baby due in 3 days
but I should do squats and then use my pull up/dip rack for my arms and back

I put my basket in my basement last weekend and would like to get some nightly putting practice in with my 3 month old disc-dog-in-training. I'm switching from a Swan to a Zone/Summit combo over the winter (unless they come out with a Z Ringer). So, I have a lot of work to do.

30 minute work-outs before work and during lunch 4x a week. Work out before work on Fridays and drink at lunch. :P

I usually do 15-20 minutes of cardio in the morning (mix b/w running, biking, stair-climbing) and do 10 minutes of mixed ab work-outs. I try to vary the exercises so the body doesn't get too used to one thing.

At lunch I do a 10 minute cardio warm up (run a mile or do a 3-mile bike ride) and then lift weights. Usually do one a day: chest, back, arms/shldrs, legs.

I'm going to start doing some yoga at least once a week to improve my flexibility ... and because my girlfriend keeps hassling me to go with her. :)

A few times a week when I get home after work I'll do wrist curls and reverse (forearm) curls to improve there (and rehab a wrist injury from last year).

Since the daylight has vanished, I've been trying to get out once or twice a week to throw putts and approach shots inside 150' for an hour. all putters, just set up the basket and go.

I'm also trying to squeeze in an hour of field time on the weekends, but it's hard to not get sucked in to rec rounds or fun little tournaments. for the field work I try to find a wooded park so it's not all wide open shots and just try to hit lines at 80-100% power.

I might add in some balance and agility drills, but don't do weights anymore. this thread has me thinking about setting up a bodyweight work out regiment. Something that won't leave me sore and affect my golf game, but still maintain a level of fitness
