Good news! You don’t need to train every day…maybe.

Welcome to day 1 of the U.S. Open. 

So, while the rest of the field is trying to figure out how to get Scottie Scheffler arrested again so they have a chance, lemme answer a question I get a lot. 

Should you work out every day? 

The short answer…NO.  

Kind of. 

In the 18STRONG Membership training programs, we keep the workouts to 3 days per week of full-body strength training routines.  

In other words, we don’t do a day for arms, a day for legs, a day for shoulders, etc.  

We train our entire bodies with a steady dose of compound movements like: 

  • Squats 
  • Deadlifts 
  • Push-Ups 
  • Presses 

The reason we choose those movements is their huge advantage over others…they train multiple muscle groups at once

Here’s why… 

Muscles are broken down during a workout. 

That’s good.  

When you introduce resistance like dumbbells, barbells, bands, or bodyweight, they tear (in a great way).  

And become weaker.  

Yes, that’s still good. 

The 24-48 hours after training is when your muscles kick into survival mode.  

And grow back stronger to prepare for the next resistance. 

That is why we don’t train the same muscles every day.  

We need to give them a chance to grow back stronger before we break them down again. 

That being said, your “rest” days can be just as important as your workout days. 

Now, for us golfers, we do active recovery on our “rest” days.  

For example, in the Golf Body Blueprint program (in the membership), the days between strength training are occupied with movement and overspeed training.

You can also walk, play basketball in the driveway, pickleball…really, any physical activity that does NOT break down your muscles.

To make it easy for our Crew, we purposefully map out each day of your month in the 18STRONG Membership.  

No guessing.  

No “is this right?”  

You just simply follow the proven formula.   



PS – If you’re feeling this.  

And if you haven’t done so yet.  

Join us in the 18STRONG Membership where our Crew all work toward a common goal of being fit, playing our best golf…and doing both for a very loooong time.
