Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: Any Day Now Edition

Share This:

Normally my “Stuff to Read” post goes up on Fridays, but in the event I get called into action tomorrow I wanted to make sure I got this up early.

 

Soon I’ll be a dad. And soon my kid will be yelling at me “you’re ruining my life!”

*slams door*

I’m going to laugh so hard.

Stuff to Check Out Before You Read Stuff

1. 2 Workshops Coming Up

Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Vancouver, April 1-2nd.

Dean Somerset and I will be in Vancouver that weekend to talk shoulders and hips and to start a tickle fight.

For more information and to sign up you can go HERE.

SUNY Cortland Health & Wellness Conference – Cortland, NY, April 8th

I’ll be at my alma mater the weekend of April 8th speaking at what I believe is the 4th or 5th annual SUNY Cortland Conference. Other guest speakers include my wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis, Mark Fisher, Brian St. Pierre, and Dr. David Just.

For more information you can go HERE.

2. Men’s Health

Check out THIS article I helped contribute to on MensHealth.com titled 6 Reasons You’ve Stopped Losing Weight.

HINT: it has nothing to do with starting a detox diet of Unicorn tears with a squeeze of lemon.

3. Oh, and this happened

In case you missed the title of the next Star Wars film was revealed the other day along with the poster.

The Bigness Project: How to Look Like You Lift – Kourtney Thomas & Jen Sinkler

I received an advance copy of this program last week, and I love it. I love everything about it. Who says women can’t (or shouldn’t) train for size? Kourtney and Jen (pictured above) have done a really nice job coming up with a program targeted towards women (but men can do it to!) that’s well designed and complete with everything you’d need to be successful.

All I know is that my wife is sooooo excited to give this program a go once she gets the clear from her doctor. It’s on sale through this Friday night (1/27) so you don’t have much time left to save.

Shoulders: I Like Them Big, Buff, and Beautiful – Julia Ladewski

I think the pic says it all, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give this article a read.

“When you’re at the gym, or maybe the beach or even people watching at a fancy dinner event, what’s one of the first things you notice on a fit, in-shape woman?

Her legs? Maybe.

Her butt? Probably.

More often than not, her shoulders.  Why? They grab your attention. They are eye level and a fit woman’s shoulders pop.”

6 Foundational Movements That Every Person on Earth Needs to Master – John Rusin, et al.

I was pumped to be asked to contribute to this article, featuring knowledge bombs from other stellar coaches like John himself, Joel Seedman, Eric Bach, Dr. Ryan DeBell, Tim DiFrancesco, and Luka Hocevar.

The only movement not listed? Sparta kicking global warming in the face.

NOTE: I was a slacker on IG this week and only posted this one about an hour ago. I suspect 1 million views by 6 PM. Give or take 995,000 or so.

I’ve never been a stud at overhead pressing. Been trying to make it more of a priority in my training and MY coach, @thestrengthhouse, put these into my most recent program: Tall Kneeling Scrape the Rack Press. These serve a few benefits. First: the tall kneeling part. This essentially takes the lower back out of the equation and makes it less likely to crank through lumbar spine. The scrape the rack part: here you have to press the bar INTO the rack, which helps recruit anterior core more (increases full body tension and also helps with not compensating through lower back). I like these a lot.

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.
