For arm, hand grip, chest and shoulder stamina building I use a set of hand grips and a chest expander, two excercise tools that do not require room to use them. Both are very easy to store and importantly do not put undue strain on your body when being used, sensibly within your limits of course. In this refresher program the effects came to notice very quickly and I have had to adjust my pitching stroke strength. The mid to long irons are out of sync as well and this will take a little adjustment on the driving fairway to get right again. Off the tee the Driver is working well enough again after this mornings hit out. I had began to get erratic with it on Monday and had not had a real chance to retune the swing tempo until today. Nothing major in error as a result of getting tired after two days of competition and starting to hit at the ball too hard. Now back to the steady easy swing and the ball flying straight at my target point, without any slice.
One matter that I have to consider seriously is a diet change for a while. The winter weather has had me snacking on a few too many comfort foods with cups of coffee. A couple of kilos of apples has replaced the sugar rich biscuits and cakes that had been in the cupboard of late. It does not take much to alter your diet much like smoking (without the nicotine addiction) the habit becomes a part of regular routine. A little discipline is all it takes to get out of the snack attacks.
Thankyou for your time and attention "Hit 'em straight all" Geoff
