I am trying to help a few Deaf Masters and they are all using pretty heavy discs and I can see it is affecting their game and bodies, to convince them to move down in weights and disc selection, i need some feedback from master guys on this forum... help anyone? Thanks.
In the beginning for me at the ripe young age of 56 I was throwing anything I could get my hands on and couldn't out why I had such bad tendinitis and my shoulder and back were killing me. I dropped to 150 class discs and am pain free now. Also as I've buit up the muscles used for disc golf I can throw heavier disc but not for a whole round. I definitely start out a round with 150 gm and later in the round when I'm well warmed up I can start to throw heavier plastic without injury.
Good on you for getting the older guys involved.
