272: Just Getting Started, Muscle Confusion, Power vs Eccentric Force, Creatine for Golfers and more . . .

This week on the latest Shouts From the Crowd episode with Jeff and Tony, we start out with some conversation about general golf, sport, and fitness current events.

In the second half of the episode, we shift into our Shouts from the Crowd segment where we answer questions from the listeners and social media . . .

Highlights from this Episode

  • The USGA’s distance report on how they believe golfers are hitting the ball too far and Tony’s thoughts on whether or not this is a serious concern for the game.
  • The Premier Golf League: What it is, why it’s creating the buzz it is, and whether or not we think it will get off the ground or fall flat.
  • Muscle Confusion and Tony’s thoughts on the pros and cons of having a varying/random workout vs. the same workout and how to choose based on your goals.
  • A quick and easy way for golfers to institute arms training into their workout without neglecting the other essentials and to battle “linguini arms.”
  • The Loose Impediment Rule and the Instagram clip Tony sent me of the latest boulder example.
