I’m beginning to steer away from the days of old when designing websites with photoshop, then converting it to html, mostly with tables within tables, within tables, within tables and so on for clients websites. I heard about this new system called the grid system. Its’ basically a streamlined way to designing sites but let me mention how it came to be a part of my life. So I’m doing the usual rituals with a few of my boyz once a month, we meet up somewhere and have a few beers, this and that and maybe go to a movie or something. Since we used to work together we’re pretty much in the same profession…web development. One of my friends mentions that they’re starting to design websites with basically css style sheets and maybe a few images and bam!, a full blown website just like that!

The 960 Grid System

The 960 Grid System

He tells me about this new way of designing sites called the “grid system”, where it teaches you to design “in the box” I should say and I must admit that this way rocks! It’s such a streamlined and cool way to developing sites and thus the whole night all we talked about was this grid system. He emails me this website the very next day, http://960.gs and I was just blown away by how this works. I being a designer of sites felt a little intimidated by this whole thing, so I felt that I had to shield myself from the world, lock the door and totally immerse myself in learning this new system.

The 960 Grid System is an effort to streamline web development workflow by providing commonly used dimensions, based on a width of 960 pixels. There are two variants: 12 and 16 columns, which can be used separately or in tandem. The 12 column grid is divided into portions that are 60 pixels wide. The 16 column grid consists of 40 pixel increments. Each column has 10 pixels of margin on the left and right, which create 20 pixel wide gutters between columns. The premise of the system is ideally suited to rapid prototyping, but it would work equally well when integrated into a production environment. There are printable sketch sheets, design layouts, and a CSS file that have identical measurements.

The 960 Grid System was created by Nathan Smith with alot of inspiration from several individuals beginning with Khoi Vinh, Cameron Moll, Olav Bjørkøy, Brandon Schauer, Jeff Croft and Mark Boulton. Their work inspired nathan to create his own, and also thanks goes out to Eric Meyer for his comprehensive reset CSS.

All modern monitors support at least 1024 × 768 pixel resolution. 960 is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 20, 24, 30, 32, 40, 48, 60, 64, 80, 96, 120, 160, 192, 240, 320 and 480. This makes it a highly flexible base number to work with. The 960 Grid System is free to use, and may be repurposed to meet your specific needs. Several projects have already spun off, including versions that were built to be fluid and elastic.

I cant express enough about this awesome way to design sites. Much kudos goes out to Nathan Smith and all the others who contributed to this system of designing, but I must admit that my skills arent quite there yet with using this grid system. As with everything in life you have to keep doing it and doing it, and eventually you’ll master it.

Have you ever wondered what workout/exercises you should be doing when toning your body up for golf? I’m trying to put together some new golf workouts to get your body ready, and what I mean by ready is to get it strong and flexible. I thought I’d highlight some other workouts that my help you prepare for other springtime/summertime activities.

Warm Up Exercises

These exercises I’m about to mention are intended to warm up the entire body with a focus on abs, back, arms and hips. Always take a few minutes before your game to warm up and stretch. You’ll protect yourself from injury as well as improve your range of motion for that ‘killer’ golf swing. It’s always good practice to warm up 5 minutes before hitting the links and to use one of your clubs to help in going through your exercises/stretches.

  • Arm Circles – This is to warm up the shoulder rotators and arms. Take the right arm straight up in front of you and circle it back and around in a full circle. Start slowly and, as you feel warmer, speed up to make the move more dynamic. Repeat for 20 reps, switch sides and then circle both arms at the same time for 20 more reps.
  • Trunk Rotations – Warm up those abs and back. Hold the golf club behind the upper back, holding the club on either side. Rotate the torso to the right, just as you would to take a swing, rotating it back and all the way through to the left. Focus on keeping the lower body stable and all movement in the torso. Repeat as necessary.
  • Side Bends – Stretch and strengthen the torso. Hold the golf club with hands wider than shoulders and take it up over the head, arms straight. Lean to the right, taking the club as far as you comfortably can, feeling a stretch in the left side of the body. Come back to center and repeat to the left for 20 reps.

Golf Strength Training Workout

This section targets the entire body with a specific focus on the muscles you use the most in golf – the abs, back, rotators and hips. Working on overall strength, you’ll increase the strength and power of your golf swing while protecting your body from the injuries that can happen with repetitive movements. Try to do these workout 2-3 times a week, with at least one day of rest in between and incorporate regular cardio exercise for a healthy heart.

  • Barbell Deadlift – Hold a heavy barbell in front of the thighs, knees slightly bent. Keeping abs in and shoulders back, tip from the hips and lower the weight towards the floor, stopping when you feel a stretch in the hamstrings. Squeeze the glutes to stand back up, repeating for 2 sets of 12 reps. This exercise strengthens the lower back, glutes and hamstrings, muscles that provide strength and stability for your golf swing.
  • Reverse Fly – Sit on a chair or bench and hold weights under your bent knees, back flat and abs engaged. Lift the arms up to shoulder level, squeezing shoulder blades together and keeping the elbows slightly bent. Repeat for 2 sets of 12 reps. This move strengthens the rear shoulders and the rhomboids (muscles between the shoulder blades), muscles that protect the rotators and work during the follow through of a golf swing.
  • Tricep Dips – Sit on a chair or bench with hands next to the hips. Lift up and take the hips in front of the chair. Bend the elbows and lower down until elbows are at 90-degree angles. Keep the hips close to the chair to protect the shoulders and keep the shoulders down and away from the ears. Repeat for 2 sets of 12 reps. This move strengthens the triceps, which helps keep your arm straight on the follow-through.

More Useful Exercises

The following exercises that may also help you with your golf game are challenging ones. Moves that target the entire body, specifically the core.

  • Back Extensions – Lie face down with hands behind the head. Lift upper body off the ground a few inches, keeping head and neck in alignment, then lift feet off the ground keeping legs straight. Lower and repeat for 12-16 reps.
  • Back/Shoulder Stretch – Stand in front of ball and place the side of the right hand on the ball (thumb pointing up). Roll the ball towards the left while keeping the hips square. Hold for 3-5 breaths and switch to the other side.
  • Wood Chop with Band/Dumbbell – This move targets the entire body, especially the abs and back. Attach one end of a resistance band to something sturdy, grasp band and dumbbell in both hands and begin in a lunge position. Keeping the arms straight, rotate the body towards and sweep the arms up on a diagonal. Repeat for 12-16 reps on each side.

Happy Gilmore

Hopefully by following some of these helpful hints in prepping your body for a good golf game, you’ll be able to lower that score little by little until finally your the “top dogg” of the group. I myself, with this valuable information may be able to take down our so called ‘top dogg” that we have in our daily saturday golf game.
