It’s Master’s Sunday!
For many of us, this is THE Sunday event of the year.
These guys are truly some of the best athletes in the world…yet they screw themselves up the same way we do.
Let me explain.
Jason Day, one of the best golfers in the world has struggled with a back injury most of the tournament.
So how did he hurt his back?
Probably hitting a 300 yard drive? Nope.
Sticking a 5-iron right next to the pin? Nope.
Picking up his daughter? Yep.
From the article:
“This did not look like a man who could win the Masters. This looked like a man who would need a forklift just to get him up from the couch. There are bad breaks, and then there is what happened to the affable Australian on Thursday here: He threw out his back on the putting green while bending over to kiss his 3-year-old daughter.”
It’s something we talk about everyday at Strive2Move. Most people don’t actually hurt themselves picking up weights or playing sports. They get hurt doing stupid things.
I would bet any amount of money that Jason Day knows the proper technique to deadlift. And I would also bet any amount of money he didn’t use that technique to pick up his daughter.
Movement is a lifestyle and has to be treated that way.
Even for the best golfers in the world.
