Lets jump right into the meat and potatoes today ladies and gentlemen.


1) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Boston

The Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint is finally coming to Boston. Not “fake” Boston, either, on the outskirts of the North or South shore, and we end up calling it a Boston workshop.

No, this sumbitch is going to be IN Boston, at AMP Fitness located near Government Center in the heart of the city.

This shindig goes down the weekend of November 11th and the early bird rate is currently in effect. Hope to see you there. And by “there” I mean HERE.

Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work

Your Hip Flexors Aren’t Tight, They’re Overworked. Here’s What To Do About It – Dr. Sarah Duvall

This article was my pick for “article that gave me the biggest nerd boner of the week.”

I’ve long championed the notion that far too many people stretch their hip flexors thinking they’re tight, when the exact opposite is true. As a matter of blunt fact: most people would be better off swallow a Matchbox car whole than stretch their hip flexors.

Dr. Sarah Duvall takes things to the next level in this article, especially as it relates to women and postpartum issues – via pelvic floor/diaphragm – that may arise or never be dealt with, even years after the fact.

1o Keys to a Big Bench Press: Parts I and II  – Tony Bonvechio

Tony is one of the best bench pressers I know. It actually pisses me off how good he is at bench pressing.

You know what, never mind, I fucking hate his guts because he’s so good at it.

In all seriousness there aren’t many coaches I’d trust more to turn someone into a bench pressing Wolverine than Tony. Read this two-part article above and then go check out his new manual, Bench Press Like a Beast, which is available now at a very, very, very affordable price.

Complete Single Leg Training – Mike Robertson

Today’s your last chance to save $50 off the regular price on this bad boy.

It’s Mike Robertson.

If you want to be a better coach, listen to him.

Social Media Shenanigans



My brand spankin new DL bar from @texasstrengthsystems arrived yesterday, so I broke it in today and tied my PR at 570 lbs. Gotta work on being more aggressive with my wedge (and getting more upper back extension) but I felt it was a solid pull. 600 is sooo close. #yodasocks.

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.
