Some New Content on Men’s Health

I had an awesome time in Philadelphia this past weekend. I was invited into town by Chris and Jaclyn of War Horse Barbell (<– if you’re in the area you should check them out) to present my The Shoulder: From Assessment to Badass workshop.

25+ fitness pros from Philly, New Jersey, and DC made the trek in to listen to me speak on shoulder assessment and performance. And, too, apparently listen to my potty mouth.

One of the attendees at my workshop today showed me this sheet at the end of the day. If you look at the top he kept a running tally of things like how many times I referenced Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, how much of a moron I am, and the best one…non-creepy sexual innuendos. LOL. Thank you @warhorsebarbell for being such amazing hosts, and to all the fitness pros who took time out of their busy schedules to listen to my penis jokes and, you know, learning about ways to improve scapular upward rotation and stuff.

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who made it, as well as a special thank you the one and only Jen Sinkler for being the most baller live-Tweeter and SnapChatter in the history of ever.

Suffice it to say, I’m wiped out.

I’ve been good for nothing today1, and had zero intentions of posting anything. But then I had a new article go up on and I figured I’d share it (along with another one from a few weeks ago that I totally neglected to show some love for).

The Circuit Every Fit Man Should Do on “Rest” Days

Rest days DO NOT mean going to the track and performing 400m tempo runs while dragging a bulldozer on the sled.

Rest day also DO NOT mean you have to be couch potato and watch Netflix.

Give this circuit a try and I guarantee you’ll feel like a champion.

Also….here’s an article I had go up on the site a few weeks ago on the efficacy of PAUSED squats.

Do More Pause Squats

Cute blue plates optional.

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.

    I am sitting in my office reading your men’s health article and imagining how awesome the yoga pushup complex and rocked back adductor stretch would feel right about now. Really good list of mobility exercises for rest days. Will add the list to my workout log.

      10 points to Gryffindor for performing them IN your office. Do it, do it, do it.

  • I have such a love/hate relationship with pause squats. So great after, but make me question my life choices during! Excited to try this “rest” day circuit too. Have been looking for something like it.

    Look forward to saying hello this weekend at TFS 🙂

      I have the same sentiments towards pause squats Kourtney. See you in a few days!

  • Good post. Thanks for sharing. I’ve recently started using paused squats in my routine. I think their great for squat building strength.

    Nice work Tony but no matter what you say I will not program more paused squats into my program. I’d rather run on a dreadmill for 1 hour while watching Oprah. Congrats Tony on both articles. Nice work mate.

      No doubt pause squats aren’t fun. But they work……;o)
