Stuff to Check Out Before You Read Stuff
1. The Cutest Pic Ever. EVER!
After a hectic travel schedule the past two weeks it’s been a comedy of errors in trying to catch up on work, emails, programs, articles to write, sleep.

2) Strong Body-Strong Mind – Toronto
Lisa and I are happy to announce we’re bringing back our Strong Body-Strong Mind workshop.
Last year we had the privilege of presenting together in Austin, TX and London, UK, and we’re elated to be heading to Toronto, Ontario to pick up where we left off.
In a nutshell I speak to a little assessment talk, program design, and breaking down technique on a few common lifts such as the squat, deadlift, get-up, and blindfolded chainsaw juggling, and Lisa speaks to more of the mindset side of the equation and how we can help build better rapport and “buy in” with our clients/athletes.

3) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Orlando
Our Vancouver shindig in April sold out, but Dean and I have recently announced a stop in Orlando, FL later this year, October 21-22nd at Spark Fitness.
I’ve never been to Orlando. There’s no way in hell I’m visiting Disney World.

Adam is one of the best deadlifters I have ever seen in person. He knows a thing or two about picking things up off the ground. I enjoyed this article/video; especially the part breaking down advantages/disadvantages of flat vs. round back deadlifts.
