I’m writing from the gym where I just booked our first MGF (Mandatory Golf Friday) of the year.
If you’re unfamiliar, that it our uncompromising, standing time for golf every Friday during the spring, summer and fall. This week, we’ll be sweeping dew at 6:36a.
In the meantime, I want to set the record straight on, what is by far, the most common physical complaint in golf…
At some point, just about all of us battle with it. Some serious. Some annoying. Some you barely notice.
But what’s weird is that, as common as it is, what we’ve been told about back pain is completely wrong – kinda like gum staying in your gut for 7 years.
Of the offenders, there are the BIG 2 common misconceptions.
I shot this video for a number of reasons:
- Expose the truth
- Give you a simple, 3-exercise routine to help fix, and/or PREVENT back pain when you play
Here’s a sneak peak…
Most likely, you DO NOT simply “have a bad back.” Sorry to tell you, but that excuse ain’t gonna fly anymore.
In 95% of cases, there is something else that isn’t working/moving like it should. So, like a good soldier, your back steps in to help.
The problem is your lower back isn’t supposed to rotate – it was designed by the almighty to flex forward and backward. And as they say, “No good deed goes unpunished”, so your good-Samaritan back takes the pain.
Don’t get me wrong, I love our backs for taking one for the team. And jumping in to help out. But let’s give our backs a break.
We need to get our bodies moving better in other areas to relieve the stress on our selfless backs.
