Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 1/12/18
I’ve got anywhere from 60-90 minutes of freedom.
Here’s this week’s list of stuff to read………
I’ve had the honor of presenting at two previous iterations of the Motivate & Movement LAB (the brainchild of MFF’s Harold Gibbons) and it’s unequivocally one of the most unique events in the fitness industry.
Think: TED Talk, but with deadlifts and lots of f-bombs.
Anyways, the next LAB is this coming February, and will feature myself, Dan John, Pete Dupuis, my wife (Dr. Lisa Lewis), and several of the MFF coaching staff including Brian Patrick Murphy and Amanda Wheeler.
I’ll also be making a cameo up in Kennebunk, Maine this Spring for the Spurling Spring Seminar.
It’s not until April, but you can save BIG now ($100 off) by purchasing an (early) early bird ticket by clicking the link above.
UPDATE: The “Early” Early Bird Special ends this Sunday (1/14)……so act quick.
[Link also provides details on all the presenters and topics covered]
There aren’t many industry events that come into this neck of the woods, so hope to see you there!

TC’s always good for some interesting tidbits and witty prose. This one didn’t disappoint.
Mobility Needs of the Female Strength Athlete – Trish DaCosta
Things like hypermobility (which tends to be more prevalent in females) and high-heels come into play when discussing the mobility needs of women.
Some awesome stuff in here from Trish.
Today’s Edge: Strengthen Your Adductors Part I and II – Tim DiFrancesco
I appreciate Tim’s insights and contributions to the strength & conditioning community. My brain does not work like his. He’s always thinking outside the box and coming up with stellar content.
If you’re not already, you should be checking out his website and social media accounts. He’s routinely providing short, bite-sized gems.
Social Media Shenanigans
I’ve got an influx of clients extolling the virtues of detoxes and cleanses. Alas, it’s that time of year. I just tell them their money is better spent tossing it into a live volcano.

Making my way through @drsarahduvall Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist course and this slide resonated with me. As oxymoronic as it sounds, women that exercise through their pregnancy are often at MORE risk for pelvic floor issues. Many feel pressure to head to the gym as soon as possible after giving birth because they actually feel “okay.” However, this mentality can often lead to some dire circumstances because their body is still healing. Yeah, you may want to perform kipping pull-ups paired with handstand walks through a grenade field for AMRAP, but that doesn’t mean you should. You CAN still exercise, but it’s important, nay, crucial, to respect the notion that your body needs time to “catch up.”
