I'm doing a stretching routine daily that takes about 20 minutes or so. Also reducing carbs, starches, fats & sugars to a reasonable, sustainable level to get my weight down; I started at 243 & have gotten down to 236 in first two weeks with a goal of getting to 190 by my 60th birthday in about 15 months. Doing squats, dead lifts & rows with relatively light dumbbells right now three times a week, alternating with three days a week of some type of cardio. Also doing a core routine most days. Beginning to feel better. I'm 6'2" and have a pretty big frame but wasn't designed to carry this much weight.

Just started my second block of P90 X3. Really like that it's only 30 minutes a day, and has a lot of focus on flexibility (which is what I need the most).

Once I get done with this I'm planning on trying a 4 weeks of SuperSpeed golf training before the season starts. Hoping this combo will let me pick up a bit of distance this year.

Over the past 10 years I've added to my basement gym:  Some combination of weights/cardio first thing every weekday morning, stretching daily.  I walk the course with a pushcart as often as I can get out there.  Stay generally as active as possible (I hate sitting still).

Last week started a six week (once a week) yoga class. Can't do most of it. Anxious to see improvement over the six weeks. I also cannot stress enough my appreciation of yoga pants.
Keep it up, yoga is great for golf, been doing it for 20+years, the 10/1 ratio of gals to guys also helps you come back, it's what you can do, and can work on, not what the 20 year old college coed is doing, tell the instructor your physical issues and ask for help, and they surely will !!

The only reason I still play good golf with limited distance loss is been going to one gym or another for weight and cardio since HS.  I am in my late 60's.  Good Luck.

Yoga twice a week and a little practice yoga on my own in between classes. Dog walks.

During the golf season, I only do yoga once a week, but I walk a golf course a lot.

In terms of weight, this year I'm just trying to eat more sensibly and drink less than I have in years past. If I do an evening Yoga class, I'll eat a pretty small, healthy meal (rice and eggs, or salad) because you don't want to go to yoga feeling full. Then, surprisingly, after yoga, I don't feel super hungry. Usually just a few peanuts and some cheese or pickles is all I feel like I want, with a beer.

I don't weigh myself, but I feel a bit trimmer right now. I think you feel a bit trimmer just from the posture improvements yoga provides. Like, if you stop swaying your back, and get your shoulders pulled back comfortably, you just feel a lot more healthy.

I put a 30kg+ backpack on full of fishing gear, walk around 3km around some jagged headlands. Cast repeatedly for at least a few hours. If I get lucky, I get the privilege of carrying an extra 10- 20 kilos of fish for the walkout. I try to do it a couple of times a week.
Walking with the backpack on uneven ground really strengthens up the core and leg muscles. I don't know for sure but I like to think that it improves my balance.
And the casting...casting a rod is really quite similar to a golf swing. There is a transfer of weight, a loading of the shaft, a turning of the body, even a release that requires timing.
My advice is go fishing.

I use beer to stay in the shape I'm in. If I wanted to change shape I might have to switch to whiskey.

I also joined a gym a few months ago which cuts into my beer money, so that helps. It would probably help if I went to the gym too, but baby steps...

You could drive by it a couple times a week. Then you could say you went to the gym.

Working out at the gym with some focus on stretching and cardio, then doing mirror work on swing and foam roller work for back flexibility.  Always looking for better ways to exercise and build increased flexibility for golf swing, especially as I have  a bad back. Plus typically get to the range and play golf on the weekends (unless there is snow on the ground).
What do you do with the foam roller on the back?

Saw this tip on Swing Pal Academy on youtube.  Place the roller just below your shoulder blades while lying on the ground, then arch backwards to open you thoracic spine.  It helps to stretch out your back and allows for better turning in the golf swing.  With a bad back I was skeptical but it really feels good, although it will feel stiff at first, and has helped to 'loosen' my back.  Give it a try it works pretty good.

I like this video from Golf Digest w/ Tony Finau. Goes through rolling achilles + calves, ITB + TFL, and back.

For me its back to the gym, spinning, stretching and lifting. As for cardio, I play hockey at least twice a week. (but I do that year-round)

But lets not get too crazy. Round is a shape. It seems to work for some people... The duff daddy (Dufner) is playing pretty well with this shape.
