Rory isn't much bigger than Brian Harman.
Rory's lankier than Harman. The long arms are great for club head speed.  Harman's a short, firepluggy dude with average length arms. He's got a 2017 swing and a 1967 body. He has to be an exceptional putter and a super fairway finder to keep up with the big boys. He's Furykesque in that sense. Anyway, pardon the ramble but I'm still tired, hungry and not playing as much golf as I'd like.
LOL.... No problem. I understand what you are saying but my post was meant as a bit of sarcasm towards the people here that think Rory is "jacked". He isn't by jacked any measure and my comparison of him to Harman was quite a bit tongue in cheek.  :)  What's funny is Rory is half the size of Ernie Els or Henrik Stenson but you never hear about those guys as being jacked.

That's because both of those guys are averagely pudgy. You can't be pudgy and jacked at the same time, no matter how muscular you are. That's the rule.

Guess WRX is bodybuilding forums now. Henrik Stenson is pudgy? I guess a visible 8 pack and garden hose vascularity that can only be obtained through extreme dieting and/or a cutting cycle is required to not be pudgy on WRX. Don't see much fat above basic healthy levels anywhere on him.

Stenson is a strong, normal looking guy. Being 'jacked' means veiny, ripped and big. If we're doing the bodybuilding forum thing, that is.

Rory does have some strong legs but he's not jacked. He's above average in strength, atleast legs and is fit. He prepped for that men's health magazine cover and got really lean, who wouldn't? His beach photo on here, his body fat is higher and almost looks like he hadn't lifted as much

i think tiger put on too many LB's for his frame,,,,rors looks better on that beach pic to me - not too jacked.  Brooks now seems like a big ole boy whether he lifts or not - seems to carry it well. heck i could see him even thinning out some if he does the same DJ workouts.

It's cause Rory wasn't trying to pack on pounds is the reason he's not jacked and just looks fit. If he started trying to gain weight, he would start getting more jacked. Tiger added on weight, he mentioned he was 150 when he got on tour and added 30 pounds to 180 in 2000 time frame. He's hovered around that weight ever since.

You can see Tiger's chest caving in because of his kyphotic back.

Still didn't fix that posture unfortunately.

I think this thread got off track by getting hung up on the term "jacked." Is Rory jacked? No. Does Rory engage in heavy lifting exercises that could potentially injure his back? Quite possibly. There are many physical therapists and orthopedists who advise against doing dead lifts, squats, and clean and jerks. They argue that the vast majority of folks doing those lifts use horrible technique which is a recipe for disaster, better to stay away from them altogether. The calculus changes once an individual reaches 40. I don't know of any respected PTs or MDs who recommend doing those lifts after hitting the big four-oh. Recovery times for connective tissue starts to increase exponentially and debilitating injury, even if using proper technique, becomes a real possibility.

I don't know, I probably wouldn't do them if my livelihood depended upon a healthy back. There are too many other quality substitutes that could be used rather than those three particular lifts. As for as other lifts that tone the arms and chest, fire away. That's certainly not going to hurt his back.

Sooo...Drs really advise that the
Best thing to do for a weak back and core is to avoid strengthening it? Even so, when is the last time a general practitioner an expert in exercise science or kinesiology? SMH �‍♂️ gotta love the interwebs.

Too big IMHO. At least in terms of wanting to look like him. Mad respect for him as a bodybuilder tho. (Also don't think he won an Olympia)

Zane, to me at least, had a tremendous physique that never got freakish in the post Arnold world of BB. He seemingly wouldn't look like the Michelin Man in a normal wardrobe and would look relatively athletic and fit at say the beach. Unlike the mass monsters from the post Arnold era and today

According to sources the below photo is of MtlJeff during his recent physical fitness stint, yeah, like Canadians can stop be nice and get fit. My peeps are working to catch photos of him and other Canadian site members at their real hobby - eating poutine, drinking beer, and most importantly curling. Eh.

Here he is a couple of months into the program.  Progress, eh.

Be jacked by end of summer.
