Training For Recreational Golfers | STACK

Generally speaking, golfers tend to be the most undertrained when it comes to strength and conditioning for their sport. Even if they are doing some form of physical training for their sport, it is usually flexibility and mobility work. I come across the entire gamut of thera-bands, foam rollers paraphernalia exercises whenever I take on a new client who is an avid golfer. The usual timeline goes like this, the golfer has some injury, might be related to golf, or may not be connected to it. He goes to a physio, who rehabs the injury. The golfer then asks the physio for help on improving his golf. The physio proceeds to prescribe stretching and mobility exercises, along with stretch band exercises for strength.

But awareness is slowly creeping in that golfers need to be strong if they want to play for a long time without injuries. Being flexible/mobile is not

Watch Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Trainer Do Push-Ups to Honor Her

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was iconic for so many reasons (seriously, pick any), and one of the many things she was known for was her dedication to health. We’re talking about a woman who was crushing workouts into her mid-80s, lifting weights and working on her flexibility with longtime trainer Bryant Johnson. After the Supreme Court justice passed away last week at age 87, her casket was taken to the US Capitol today to lie in state. Johnson was among those there to honor her, and he did so in a way we know RBG would love: by completing a set of perfect push-ups.

Why push-ups? As Johnson told POPSUGAR in a 2018 interview, push-ups were actually Ginsburg’s favorite exercise. “When we first started training, she didn’t think she could do one,” he said. “But she started on her knees and worked her way up to a full push-up. Seeing her

Muhyiddin gets a dose of own medicine

YOURSAY | ‘Like it is said, if you live by the sword, you die by the sword.’

Muhyiddin: I am still PM until proven otherwise

Rupert16: “Until that is proven, the PN government stands firm and I am the legitimate prime minister,” said Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

Muhyddin, you were never the legitimate PM in the first place. You took power by the backdoor and overthrew a government mandated by the rakyat. Got it?

The ruling Perikatan Nasional (PN), in a joint statement, accused opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim of being “power crazy”.

These guys should take a long hard look at themselves in the mirror.

Malaysia4All: Isn’t it rich and hypocritical of Muhyiddin to say that “This claim (that the PN government has fallen) needs to be proven through the processes and procedures determined by the Federal Constitution”?

After all, wasn’t it Muhyiddin himself who formed his government by not

Back to work: NBA’s non-Disney clubs start team workouts


FILE – In this March 4, 2020, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kevin Love (0) drives against the Boston Celtics during an NBA basketball game in Cleveland. The teams that didn’t qualify for the restart of the NBA season at Walt Disney World could begin voluntary workouts Wednesday, Sept. 23, to start preparing for their next game — whenever that is. Love said it was “paramount” for the team to get together and make up for lost time.


Kevin Love was back on the court in Cleveland. Karl Anthony-Towns got to work in Minnesota and his old coach started to mold his new team in New York.

After six months without one, it felt so good for some NBA teams to practice again that even Allen Iverson might’ve enjoyed it.

“I’ve never seen a layup drill with such intensity,” Atlanta coach Lloyd Pierce said. “We did a full-court

Between Covid-19 and the hurricanes of the past week, many exercise plans have been thwarted.

It’s often the case that unexpected disruptions cause havoc to those of us who are creatures of routine. The ability to achieve your goals can depend on how well you manage interruption:

• Plan for change

Schedule known and potential interruptions in your calendar that could happen throughout the year. This will help identify when you may need to modify different things leading into a busier period.

When setting out goals for the next week, month or year give them a time frame that can account for something going wrong.

You likely know of upcoming birthdays or family events. Make sure to schedule them in.

Want To Replicate The In-Class Workout Experience At Home? Here’s How


There are only two ways people are coming out of this pandemic; either ripped or in dire need of a diet. Though many cities have started to ease on the lockdown, with the re-opening of malls, offices, salons etc.; many people are still left without access to their usual gyms and workout studios. Most people prefer fitness classes over any other method of fitness and for obvious reasons.

However, the at-home fitness model is here to stay for quite some time, and though it isn’t the easiest, especially if you’re going for yoga classes or HIIT workouts, it is the best option if you want to stay healthy and keep in shape.

While people today have found themselves adjusting to a new normal, the home workout industry has become more accessible than ever. There are many programmes and apps in the market that focus entirely on at-home fitness

College football coaching highlights and lowlights of Week 3

A light Week 3 slate in college football — the final weekend before the SEC joins the party — brought us coaching debuts, reality checks and even some returns from the dead. 

The spotlight will dim as the SEC, Big Ten and Pac-12 start to enter into the national college football equation and saturate the slate. While many coaches have thrived with the stage to themselves, others will welcome the distraction of more big boys in college football. 

Here are the coaches who stood out from the crowd in the last weekend before the SEC’s arrival.

Head Coach of the WeekJeff Hafley, Boston College

There were all kinds of reasons to think Boston College was not well-positioned to find early season success: Hafley arrived as a new head coach, without spring practice, with truncated summer workouts, with a new offensive coordinator bringing an NFL system with him,

DeChambeau bombs away, pulls away to win US Open

MAMARONECK, N.Y. (AP) — The Latest from the final round of the U.S. Open, golf’s second major of the year (all times EDT):

DeChambeau was the only player under par in the final round, laughing off Winged Foot’s narrow fairways and thick rough with his booming drives that averaged 325 yards. He shot 67 on Sunday to finish at 6 under — just the third person to in six U.S. Opens at Winged Foot — a total of 750 players —to shoot below par.

Remote-learning health tips to prevent neck pain and eye strain in children

“Movement and having the screen at eye level are the biggest things to reduce issues of lower back and neck pain,” says Daren Molina, a sports medicine specialist at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, where he’s starting to see an uptick in young patients with problems related to being sedentary and having poor neck posture.

Screen placement

Laptop risers, tablet stands or stacks of books can all do the trick in getting screens where they need to be, preventing the dreaded “text neck,” the painful result of being hunched over, Molina said.

Once the screen is at eye level, directly in front of the body, make sure the laptop (or tablet) is at arm’s length, about 18 to 24 inches from where your child is sitting, said Aaron Miller, clinical spokesman for the American Academy of Ophthalmology. To encourage good “eye hygiene” for at-home learners, the AAO recommends positioning the
