    The Barbell and the Golf Club: My Journey with Depression and Anxiety

    The Barbell and the Golf Club: My Journey with Depression and Anxiety

    Today I discuss my battles with depression and anxiety and how golf and barbell training have been very important tools for me in managing my mental health.  

    This is a big reason why I am so passionate about helping others improve their health, play better golf and learn to love and enjoy both exercise and the game of golf

    I know that no matter what goes on in my life, no matter how dark the time s or how low I get, I know that when I get a barbell or a golf club in my hand I can clear my mind and escape even if temporary.

    Alonge with these tools the biggest thing I did was to seek help and get properly diagnosed putting a name and a clear plan for the struggles that i was going through for most of my adult life.  

    If you are going through these struggles no matter what the best advice I can give is to reach out and get help. Reach out to a friend or family member, find a qualified counselor or therapist and get the proper treatment, whatever that may be, for your issues and struggles. 

    I believe we are all athletes and that we should train like athletes to some degree regardless of our goals.

    Breaking Records with Yancy Methvien, The Worlds Most Avid Golfer

    Breaking Records with Yancy Methvien, The Worlds Most Avid Golfer

    Yancy Methvien is a medically retired member of the US Coast Guard. 

    Struggling with depression after his transition to civilian life, he turned to golf as a therapeutic activity.  After he realized how good the game was for him, he did some research and found that it was helping other Veterans as well. 

    To raise awareness about the benefits of golf for Veterans, he decided to break the World's Record for rounds played in a single year which he accomplished in 2019.

    Yancy is a great man and has done a lot to grow the game of golf and to help support his fellow veterans. I had a great time talking about his journey and the game of golf in general. 

    You can follow Yancy on social media here:

    Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yancy.methvien

    Find out more about the Veterans Golf Association here: https://www.vgagolf.org/

Great Guests with Great Info

I've enjoyed the discussion from some great guests (and even some big names in golf and strength worlds). I've found it helpful for golfers to understand the principles of improvement, mobility, strength, nutrition, etc... Listen and take action and I think you'll start to see changes.
