It’s Valentine’s Day – every guy’s favorite holiday of the year:)
This evening, when you put on your best duds to take out your main squeeze, I want you to notice something as you look around the restaurant.
You’ll see people of all shapes and sizes.
You ever see people who look lean and mean when they’re dressed up, but then you see them over the summer at the pool. And it’s skinny-fat city?
Nice clothes are very deceiving.
On the other hand, there are guys built like Norm Peterson from Cheers, but you’d better not tangle with them – beneath the outer layer of flab, is boatload of muscle.
One of the biggest mistakes we all make (I still do it) when it comes to fitness is judging the book by its cover.
When you see a lean guy with low body fat %, I guarantee you assume that he is mobile. Even though he may be stiff as a statue.
When you see a bulky, muscular dude, it’s even easier to assume that he is tight as a drum. And could never touch his toes.
Neither may be true.
Mobility and strength have far less to do with how your body looks than you may think.
The truth is that it has a lot to do with what exercises you’re doing, and what plan you’re following.
The first time I tried a squat with rotation, it sounded like I was popping popcorn with all my creaks and cracks.
Same thing doing neck rotations. It sounded like I was cracking my knuckles, which is a very uncomfortable sound coming from your neck and spine.
At that point, I looked like I was in good shape. And I was. Just not for golf.
The reason I wasn’t mobile wasn’t because of what shape I was in.
It was a bunch of reasons like:
1. I never trained for mobility, so my brain-body didn’t know what to do
2. I lacked strength in the range-of-motion I was doing
3. My nervous system couldn’t relax because it was protecting me from injury
You can probably guess that the key to a loose, but still-in-control swing is the opposite of the above.
The key is to move those joints that we need on the course – neck, shoulders, hips, ankles, etc.
You will be amazed how much easier your swing is when you get those “golf areas” greased up.
I went from stiff and creaky to limber and slinky.
And I’ve never looked back.
You can experience the same with the Daily Motion EFD in the 18STRONG Membership.
Now, have a great night tonight. After all, Hallmark wouldn’t have it any other way:)
Your #1 Fan,
