To everyone down in Florida (and other possible affected areas in Irma’s path)….be safe this weekend.


1) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Orlando & Boston

** Obviously with Irma kicking on Florida’s door this weekend, this event may be postponed. As of now we’re still good to go, but Dean and I will be sure to keep everyone notified.

There’s only two weeks left to take advantage of the Early Bird rate for Dean Somerset and I’s workshop in Orlando, at Spark Fitness, the weekend of October 21st.

You can go HERE for more details and to sign up.

HEADS UP: We’ve also added Boston into the mix later this year. Not Burlington Boston or Beverly Boston, two cities that are lovely, albeit not (that) close to Boston.

No, this is IN Boston. In the heart of the city Boston, at AMP Fitness.

Early bird rate is in effect now and if you’re super eager to sign-up you can go HERE.

How To Train Clients With Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction –  Haley Shevener

A lot goes down when a woman gets pregnant. That’s the understatement of the year I suppose, and it’s not lost on me that I’m a dude saying this.

What the heck do I know?

Well, my wife gave birth to our son earlier this year (trust me: some shit went down) and as a fitness professional I have worked with a litany of women through their pregnancies.

This was an excellent article featured on the Girls Gone Strong website, and if you work with women who are pregnant or postpartum you’ll want to check it out.

The 5 Most Common Programming Myths – Nick Tumminello

I always appreciate Nick’s authenticity and willingness to kick the status quo in the dick.

This was good.

10 Reasons Why You Aren’t Excelling at Pull-Ups – Meghan Callaway

I really like Star Wars.

Meghan really likes pull-ups.

Social Media Shenanigans



My new accessory straps that @smittydiesel sent me are legit. They’re perfect for exercises like face pulls (demonstrated below by my client, Emily) as well as many other row variations – both horizontal & vertical – in addition to things like curls, tricep work, and sled/Prowler drags. The strap itself is 20″ in length which makes it great for increasing ROM and opening up the shoulders and it’s impossible to tear. I like it too because whenever I have someone use it I automatically get to put the word “Diesel” in front of the name of the exercise. For instance: Emily is performing Diesel Face Pulls. That’s waaaaay cooler than just plain ol’ face pulls. Check em out on Smitty’s site here:

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.
