Should you work out every day?

As I’m writing this, our boy Hayden Buckley is T3 at the US Open…granted he’s only through #4 and it’s early. BUT, I love seeing a familiar name atop the leaderboard.

So, while Hayden is out gallivanting at LA Country Club living his dream, 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:

SquatsDeadliftsPush-UpsPressesThe exercises we meticulously choose have a huge advantage over others…they train multiple muscle groups at once.

Here’s why…

Muscles are broken down during a workout.

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

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.

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 (in the 18STRONG 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.

You’ve got this.
