The human body is not like a piece of machinery in the sense that your bodies heal. So, theoretically they should heal. Healing ability diminishes with age because of the reduced stem cell count, but in general your body should heal itself. Also, certain parts of the body heal extremely slowly.

The caveat is if you overexert for a prolonged period of time you can break things down before they are permitted to heal.

First you must define your use of the word ‘Stress’. Second, what type of repetitive motion are you referring to?

The human body is, in essence, a machine.  It is a combination of multiple systems that interconnect to create certain actions/movements that require an energy expenditure to produce a desired outcome.  Stress from repetitive activity to the system is inevitable, regardless if it is a human or, let's say a sport car.  Maintenance & conditioning is the key to whether the stress can be reduced to produce an environment of healing to the system. Providing the body not only proper nutrition to refuel itself and rebuild its needed stores as well as properly strengthening/stabilizing the proper areas of the body that will be required to perform the desired repetitive action once again tomorrow.

stress referring to tensions, tightness in the body. Physical tightness

any type of repetitive motion. that is using the same muscle group over and over again. An example would be bikers, swimmers etc.

Like breathing.

Sure it can. Isn't that how we strengthen muscles in the first place?

You overdo it and risk injury from the repetition. Your muscles aren't the only body parts that can be stressed. Joints don't heal the way muscles do.

I don't understand the point of these topics, @JCrane. It's a vague question and then you're gonna drop some knowledge? Why start with the vague question to begin with?

And… do you play golf? Or ever talk about it?

My intent here is to get people to think about things they may not normally think about. Why is it important you ask. ? These issues are taken from the work I do with Athletes, people who work in factories, people who work in their gardens, carpet layers, weightlifters and golfers.

I have learned that many of us move through our day without a thought of what we are doing with or maybe to our bodies ( from a muscle point of view ) until something goes wrong. My intent is to get people to pay more attention to what is going on before they have a problem not after. This may lengthen their golf life or keep it from deteriorating. 

With  some of these topics It is I who has been educated from a technical point of view by people in this group that possess the background that I do not.

i certainly do not claim to have the answers because it is different for everyone, but I certainly can share what I have seen in others and what I have experienced.

I am sure there are those who think these topics do not relate to golf, but as I just finished listening to an interview with Tiger Woods who talked about his fused back and how it affected his round of golf, I would respectfully disagree. Here is a man who was on track to break Jack Nicholas's record and what happened ?

yes, I play golf and yes I talk about it, but I have to admit I do not possess the knowledge base that so many others in these forums have, so I go through the posts on golf and try to learn from what is being posted by the higher level golfers.I do spent time in the other forums, learning from others.  I just do not post there. I take notes

Yes, but it has to be an extremely high volume. I do not think the typical average golfer suffers from this.

I agree with this to a certain extent.

Yes, I've done things without considering how it could damage my body. For example, I used to carry my tool bucket with my left hand. Did it for years until I developed a shoulder problem around this time last year, realized it was from carrying the tools. It took months to heal. I pull them on a cart now. Funny part is, I used to carry with my left hand thinking I would develop strength on my left side and balance my body because I'm right-handed.

There are other things I'm well aware I am doing is stressing my body, but there's nothing I can do about it. I'm probably going to develop arthritis because of how much I use my hands. I developed an issue with my left thumb a couple of years ago. I couldn't squeeze my thumb and my fingertips together with full strength. Couldn't play my bass for a year. I'm not even sure it's 100% healed, but I can't stop working so it is what it is.

I also tend to get minor back injuries throughout the year because of stuff I do at work.

This seems like the type of question where there's an actual answer, so what I "believe" doesn't matter at all.

What's the answer, professor? Please cite your work.

Just share. These vague questions likely aren’t doing what you want.

I only speak for me but the ambiguous questions just annoy. Just say what you want.

ok, it is your site

great examples thanks for sharing I like the one about carrying the bucket, thinking it was building strength and it probably did, but caused other problems

Actually it is just the opposite. What you believe is what matters and what I believe may or not matter to you.

 I have observed swimmers come into my class with very tight shoulders and hips from hours of swimming, and I have observed cyclists with tight backs, but I am not a doctor or do I have my PHD, so I was curious if others on this site had experienced this in their own life or have seen it in others.

 Thanks for sharing

That makes a lot of sense to me.   I do Yoga, play golf, play volleyball and swim, but when I started playing Pickle Ball, I broke down.

First I pulled a hamstring and I let that heal, then I went back and played Pickle ball two days in a row and my back muscles tightened up, so I backed off. I had the same problem with golf last year. I could not play two days in a row. I think it goes back to know thyself.

can repetitive shallow breathing cause stress ? Good question. We better save that for another discussion.

Sounds like how those cycleists (never bikers ;-) ) and swimmers build strength and endurance....

sorry Cyclists not bikers. no question about that. great for building endurance

I would have to agree on the volume part.

    • I think of this question in terms of which tee box to play from.  If I was using my 3 hybrid more than say 2 or 3 times to a par 4 after a decent drive, I'd play from a more forward tee box. Ideally, if I was a course architect, I'd want you to use a long iron (3 or 4 iron) a couple times for par fours, and have one or two par five holes that you can reach in two with a really good drive and a 3 wood, and the other par five holes are not reachable in two.
    • One thought I use w/shanks is "hit the toe". Might work, YMMV.
    • The dreaded shanks are contagious. If you hit one on the range fine, but two in a row and just walk away and go putt and come back after a few minutes and remember to breathe. Once you do come back, work on your path with a headcover just outside the ball and start with some easy shots then progress to full shots. Question for you, do you tend to whip the club inside on the takeaway or slide forward a bit? And remember:  Everybody shanks, sometimes.....  
    • Well the golf season never really ends here so I will add to these numbers with a few more round this year hopefully, but here we go:  I have played roughly 35 times this year, and I have played at: Raveneaux Country Club  Cypresswood (Tradition Course) Jersey Meadow Golf Club Windrose Golf Club Memorial Park Golf Course Cypress Lakes Houston National Longwood Southwyck  Patty Jewett Golf Course Augusta Pines Golf Course Meadowbrook Farms  High Meadow Ranch Pamilla Beach and Golf Club Sterling Country Club Spring Valley Disc and Golf Club Raven Nest Golf Club  I hope to add at least one more course to this list before YE. 
    • Besides the smarty pants answer of a putter or wedge...I looked at game golf (even though I haven't used it much in recent months). I hit almost 40% of my green inside 150 yards so I would say I need an 8 Iron, or maybe a 7 to feel pretty confident about my GIR chances.
