As a quick reminder: Dean Somerset and I will be in LA (Anaheim) next weekend (Nov. 14th-15th) for our Complete Interpretive Dance of Lord of the Rings Workshop Complete Shoulder & Hip Workshop.

Not to get all emotional or anything, but here’s an email I received this morning from an attendee of our Chicago workshop:
Dean and Tony – You both provided an incredible weekend of instruction and mentoring.  You guys were so fabulous and enormous credits to our industry. I am honored to have experienced you both. Thanks for inspiring me to always strive to get better!!!  Thank you.
– Sean A.

Dean and I try our best to make this workshop equal parts informative and applicable to coaches and trainers (as well as general fitness enthusiasts), and it’s always amazing to get feedback like that

What Do the Data Really Say About Essential Oils? – Dr. John Berardi

I’ll admit that when I first saw the title (and read the initial few paragraphs of the article) I thought to myself, “OH. MY. GOD…Berardi has gone all Poliquin on us.”

Spruce oil, peppermint, lavender… all may play a role in increasing testosterone levels and help reduce chronic pain and inflammation?

What’s next? Telling me swallowing a teaspoon of cinnamon will increase my vertical jump 15%1 or that I can adopt a pet Liger on Craigslist?

But then I kept reading. And before I knew it I was bathing in a tub of peppermint.

Okay, kidding.

But in all seriousness my interest was piqued, and I respect the way John explains his own anecdotal experience while at the same time discussing the science behind using essential oils.

See what you think.

Note to Self: be sure to look into stock on lavender scented candles on Monday.

4 Ways Modern Life is Making You Fat – Mike Sheridan

No big surprises here, but it’s a message that needs to be re-stated time and time and time again.

Off the Floor: A Manual For Deadlift Domination – David Dellanave

If someone asked me “what’s your go to resource for beginners (or anyone) to really learn the deadlift” I’d point them in the direction of this manual.

Very thorough resource with programming included as well as an extensive video database (and a bunch of add-ons and bonuses). And it’s gluten free.

The sale ends TONIGHT (11/6). Soooo, yeah…take advantage of it, if saving money is your thing.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

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.
  1. I’ll take it!
