    Golf fitness ??

    Does anyone do anything for golf fitness ??

    I have found I'm really struggling with tiredness near the end of my round and also generally aching, could be just the fact that I've had a long lay off from the game but I don't hear any of my PP's complaining about tiredness or muscle aches.

    I found i was getting tired towards the back end of the round, i got an electric trolley, that sort of solved it

    I've had a lecky trolley since I returned

    I'm considering doing weights, my shoulders ache after a round, just wondering if it's lack of shoulder strength, plus fatigue near the end causes scoring issues as well.

    Stretching, the one thing every fitness coach tells you after exercise, do we do it....nope.

    Overall I'm fit and usually active,however for the last few weeks my back has been in spasm.Having now gone 2 weeks without one although I've had a few twinges I started to do some stretching today.I was following Piers from Meandmygolf today where he did a 20 minute session in America.
    I could not do half the stretches but he could,in fact he was quite impressive. If my back continues to improve I will keep doing this video.

    No issues here to report but I have been running 5 miles every night since the Starr of January and also do a about 15 miles on my bike along with some weights.

    The aching is lactic acid buildinv up in your muscles. Weights won't do a lot for that. Cardio will be of more benefit , on something like a cross trainer that involves the shoulder muscles , followed by some good stretching will be far more beneficial.

    Just back in from a 7 mile run. I do it alternate days, fitting in an hour swimming lengths on the other days. Thinking of getting a bike, and turning it into an iron man thing.
    Give it big humpties
