Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 1/15/16

A few things before I defer you to this week’s list of stuff to read.

1) Fargo. Not the city, the show.  It’s amazing.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been to Fargo and it (and the people) is lovely1….but the show is rocking my world right now. If it weren’t weird (and impossible) I’d totally make out with it.

My wife and I watched season one a few weeks ago within a span of three days and I just started watching season two this week.

  • In case you’re wondering, the show has nothing to do with the 1996 Coen Brothers movie. Well, there are a few similarities in terms of source material (the Coen Bros are producers of the show), but all in all it’s a stand alone storyline that’s beautifully written and acted.
  • It’s dark as shit, which I love. The show airs on F/X, so they have a little more leeway with language and the violence they can depict.
  • And on top of the quality acting, the production value is spectacular – in particular the cinematography.
  • I highly recommend if you haven’t checked it out yet.
  • AND NO SPOILERS. I still need to finish season two.

2). Dean Somerset and I announced a few NEW DATES within the last week for our Complete Hip & Shoulder Workshop in 2016. This time in Europe. Holla!

Prague, Czech Republic – May 14-15th

Oslo, Norway – May 20-21st


To say we’re excited (and honored) would be an understatement. We feel between both locations we’ll be able to attract people from across the continent. So, no excuses people.

These are in addition to a handful of others we’re doing across North America this year (Toronto, Seattle, etc) which you can find more details on HERE.

3). Also, as a quick aside registration for The Fitness Summit is now open to all NEW ATTENDEES. Click HERE for more details.

And now onto this week’s list.

Are Deep Knee Squats Bad For Your Knees? – Erson Religioso

Outside of being written by someone with one of the most baller names I have ever seen, this article has a ton of great info and a pretty cool graphic for those who’s heads hurt when they read a bunch of big words.

One Quick Trick To Build Hip & Core Stability – Andrew Millett

Strength and stability are one in the same, right? RIGHT?

Not exactly.

Kettlebell Deadlifting For Strength? Yes, It’s Possible – Frank Duffy

I love using kettlebells to help groove a proper hip hinge/deadlift pattern. Unfortunately, many people seem to think that once you can lift a KB for a certain amount of reps that’s all there is. Onto the barbell!

Not so fast.

Here are some fantastic progressions to take into consideration of yourself or for your clients.

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. Except for the 8-9 months out of the year that it’s cold as balls outside. It’s not so lovely then.
