💪 Pain-pill popping  

Happy Wednesday, my fellow golf nut. Has the post-Masters depression gone away yet? 

I’m sure the RBC Heritage puts on a great event in South Carolina, but it’s just not the same. It’s like trying to follow Dave Chappelle on stage. 

Maybe you noticed (or perhaps you didn’t), but Paul Casey withdrew from the Masters on the first day due to back spasms. If you picked him in your pool, you definitely noticed.  

Back issues are nothing new for golfers. 

Here’s what Brian, one of Crew, sent me… 

I have a long way to go, but for the first time in a decade I know I’m going to get there. The lower back pain that hampered my golf game for as long as I can remember, is gone. It’s different than all the other plans I’ve tried. It’s different because it works. 

Forget golf, forget working out…my daily life is better because I’m pain free due to my increased mobility. 

Now, Brian was one of those golfers who had to load up on drugs to play a round of golf. And not the ones made from gummies. 

And I don’t just mean Tylenol, ibuprofen or aspirin.  He was taking some serious narcotics to get through 18 holes because of what football did to his body in high school. 

So, what “fixed” him? 

He focused on two things: 

  1. Getting strong 
  1. Getting mobile 

After just a month of doing those two things, he completely stopped popping pills before he played. 

Just like so many others of us, he kept telling me, “Why did I wait so long?”  

No worries, Brian. We’re all guilty. 

Today, think about what you can do to get stronger and more mobile. It could be as simple as getting up from your desk and moving around. It could be adding another plate to your squat. Either way, get your butt out there and protect yourself.

PS – The training program that got Brian off the pre-round junk isn’t some custom, unique program specifically designed for him. He did the Golf Body Blueprint in the 18STRONG App

Like I said yesterday, it’s not going to be EASY. But it is SIMPLE.
