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!

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?

    • I'm not giving up the fight. We can change it back.
    • Yes, I do. But linguists are already telling us that the meaning has changed, and that we old codgers need to just accept it, because "very" and "really" went through this same change years ago--and now it's litterally's turn.  The definition now includes "used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true."
    • It’s been 3 years since I posted a swing video but this offseason I am planning on doing a lot of work on my swing (I’ll be taking lessons every 3 weeks for 4-5 months). I just had my first lesson and we are working on shallowing out my swing, neutralizing my grip and getting me to stand closer to the ball. The first video linked here is my swing at the beginning of the season (showcasing my steep over the top move) and the second video is my swing today 10/21 about two weeks after my first lesson. I am currently a 15 handicap. I shot 12 over twice this year and one time shot 9 over. 8 iron in both videos.  
    • When I watch FO swings on my V1 app from various pros, they all seem to be similar those positions regarding club face. I don’t know if doing anything with this is beneficial but rather correcting body movements to create this ?    I believe it’s something that’s supposed to happen but many amateurs try to force it. Usually it’s another mechanic that’s faulty but they try to manipulate the forearms/wrists to release. Don’t know numbers but videos I just watched all have very close to 60*/120* to me.
