I've seen them at Target. They're called resistance bands and you should be able to find them online, too.

I've actually started lifting weights and I've been trying to incorperate rotator-cuff exercises like the ones given to help with disc golf. I guess we'll see how well they work.

Yeah, I bought mine at target.

The biggest thing with these exercises is strict form. You have to try and eliminate your back or other large muscle groups from the motion. After doing it a few times you will feel what I'm talking about.

I used to lift a lot of weights and always targeted the chest too much. Eventually I developed a muscle imbalance and my shoulders hurt like hell when I would do bench press. Ever since then I do these exersizes before every workout. Shoulder pain is gone for the most part, but I still have some rotator cuff damage from HS sports and snowboarding falls.

I know what you're saying. I believe my back and shoulders to be my weakest muscles. Also, you guys are correct about isolating the muscles (eliminating big muscle groups).

Oh one other thing. Do y'all remember a device a few years back that was liek these bands with a handle. It was supposed to add distance to your throw. It came in 3 resistances based on your throwing ability.

Anyone purchase one? I had a friend that bought one, and he did improve. But, I'm not sure if it was due to that thing or just his natural progression.

Ball golf, Mountain bike, hiking and if we include random hobbies I would include pool and tennis.

I use to play a lot of darts but moved away from it because it lost its interest for me. I do think it is really funny when competative darts come on T.V. because the announcer tries way to hard. Like WAY to hard.

Cool, I too am a tennis player. I have slowed way down on dart competitions because I am trying to cut way back on my drinking. It is difficult for me to throw in a league game in a bar and not drink. I can do it at the house, but not at the bar with all those bottles serenading me.

my other activities have been fairly limited to my main addiction-
skiing...
Image
& hiking to get to skiing (next to the patrol-only lift)
Image
(yes... I had a beat dxBeast hyzer-flip up to flat and just f-ing GO from up there once- it might still be flying)

but since the wife's medskool has taken us away from the mtns for a few years- disc golf, biking, playing at the lake and pool, and general mr mom duties fill my time... (and posting on internet forums :roll: )
look forward to livin out west again and helping to develop the local disc golf scene out there in bozeman mt where we're finally getting a public 12 hole course I guess- we've got a summer-only 18 pay-to-play...

I play all sports on a mediocre level. With a little practice I can be decent at any sport. Baseball was always my thing it's the only sport I would say I am great at. I'm 27 now played AA for a while but the road sucked!!!! and so did the $ so I kind of "gave up the dream" and now play a local semi pro league. I recently discovered disc golf and I can play that with my friends so we'll see if I play baseball again next season.

The main sport I do is competitive swimming. I've been swimming for about the last 4-5 years I guess. It's had its good times and bad to say the least.
