Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: Tons of FREE Content Edition

Share This:

Oh, hello. You may have noticed that Dean Somerset and I have been all over the internet this week promoting our new resource Complete Shoulder and Hip Blueprint. Collectively we’ve written about 717 guest posts and appeared on 32 different podcasts.


Okay, maybe not quite those high of numbers. But it sure feels like it. We may have even hit the threshold where we’ve hit annoying political ad territory and people would rather jump into a shark’s mouth than read another article, Tweet, or Facebook post on shoulders and hips.

By now I’m sure there’s a fair portion of the population that’s “had it up to here” with Dean and I.


If it’s any consolation…all this week we have both been pumping out tons of FREE content in addition to all the free content other fitness pros have been churning out to help get the word out.

So, shut up….;o)

Below is everything I could find. Enjoy. No purchase required.2
