Lol my bad..Yoked = Jacked..muscle wise. He's claiming he will be a different person when we see him again.

LAS VEGAS – Bryson DeChambeau says he will look a lot different when we see him next on the PGA TOUR because he plans to stack on some serious muscle.

He's going to take six weeks off and come back completely jacked and looking like a different person? Sounds like some Instagram fitness BS. Next thing you know he's going to be promoting BCAAs.

Yeah...oh brother. Poor kid....just an OCD tinkerer. All graphite shafts and now he’s gonna transform his body in 6 weeks.

Says he’s going to be using “muscle activation techniques”...

I guess we won’t ever hear about his glutes not firing!

If 40 seconds in real time (maximum shot time) is 2 minutes in his world, he shouldn't be back for 18 weeks. What a treat that would be.

6 weeks won't do much.  Seems like a PR stunt.  Fitness is a lifetime commitment and I suspect he's already got a pretty intensive program right now.  I wonder what the details 'really' are..

I can think of quite a few pros that should get on the fitness kick a lot more than BCD.

I am guessing that he has been on a fairly intense regimen and is probably due to bulk up a little and decided to use the timing to generate some hype for his name and game.  A massive PR stunt.  Nothing else 🤷‍♀️

Yep, unless he's going all Roid Rage :-P.

When i read the topic title i thought by "bulking up" he meant "eating pies". In 6 weeks he could really bulk up on the pies diet.

He is an elite golfer who is more under scrutiny than others. Don't sell him short on this. He hasn't been exactly unsuccessful with his scientific method, time between shots aside. He has probably studied his own physiology for a long time and knows exactly what he wants to strengthen - and how - and has the science to back it up. I suspect "bulk up", to him, means something different than we think. Best, -Marv

I hope he counts his days correctly 


Is it safe to do a full body workout every other day? I only have limited days I can get to the gym, and latley instead of doing upperbody or lowerbody I...

Yes but in his case it’s no different than saying Phil hasn’t been unsuccessful with his carrying his lucky coin.

Joking aside, he does look built to be able to stack muscles. Most professional athletes in sports where high muscle recruitment is required could bulk up due to their higher concentration of fast twitch muscles. The question is if they want to change their physique?

Most of my ex-teammates in high school sports could bulk up a bit in a few weeks. They have the natural ability to get big. The problem is recovery. That’s where steroids are generally used. So, you have to have the ability to consume and use high thousands of calories and bulk up, then steroids can help with recovery.

With a well regulated diet and minimal  steroid use (or a modern recovery equivalent), he probably could bulk up in 6 weeks.

Even though I never could afford steroids, but some of my teammates could. I just had debilitatingly sore muscles most of the time, while my ex-teammates were magically and fully recovered before every event. 🤪

Totally possible for a pro athlete to do it in 6 weeks. Since, BD prides himself in the scientific method, I’d have to guess some form of PEDs will be involved, and I’m pretty sure it would be undetectable or even currently legal.

I’d actually believe him if he said 6 months not 6 weeks. He can definitely get in good shape in 6 weeks but he won’t be adding much muscle. Most people on average can gain about 10-15lbs of muscle in a year. Thats assuming he isn’t using PEDs.

Agree with the rest, but the “scientific” method kind of implies that? If he’s taking a break, does that allow him to use them? IDK?

How does one imply the other?

    • Had a group of college friends together for a little 2 on 2 friendly competition. We all made bogey on 1. On 2 there is a little pond short left of the green. My partner hit into the hazard. Ball on the edge of the water. He goes in after it, where the water has receded and left a muddy edge. Dude goes into the mud waist deep. Shoe came off. Fell on his face. Literally worried that he was not going to get out. It’s 50 degrees and dude is covered in mud, wet. Needless to say I had to drive him back up to his car and that was the end of his day.    so we played individual for the day. On 15 holes I was 4 over par. On the other 3 holes, thanks to a pair of doubles and a triple I was 7 over. 11 over for the round is one of the first times I failed to break 80 for a round in a while. Overall for the day I didn’t play bad but those 3 holes were just ugly. 6. I hit a weak drive right on a hill, awkward lie. Couldn’t get a good stance. Chunk my shot. My 3rd was from 75 and I left that short. Chip on for 4 and 2 putts for a double 6. 13. 8 iron deep left. Chip on and 3 putt for a double 14. my 6 iron off the tee layup I chunk into the water. Haven’t hit a ball off the tee out of play all season here. Drop from 230 out up hill. Hit 3 wood and lucky to not be OB left. Barely in play and not a good stance with tree in my backswing. Leave that short of the green. Chip that on and 2 putt for a 7.  Did drive one onto the fringe at 8 today and had a putt at eagle on the hole for 1st time all year so managed an easy birdie there. Eagle lipped out. Would have been a nice boost considering the double at 6 and then 3 putt bogey at 7. Hit 10 GIR which is about where I would normally be any given day. Few more putts than normal but didn’t putt awful. If I could just have those 3 holes back!
    • Day 2 same as yesterday COVID drills 1&2.
    • I'm working in Richmond all week, just a coincidence.  I'm going to come home friday, play with Bill on saturday, and drive back down.  I'm staying at a Marriott Courtyard, I think it's just around the corner from the Hampton inn.
    • Day 74 about 10 minutes of chipping and pitching practice 
    • Day 22: Light day today. Just worked on feels from my latest lesson.
