Baby’s asleep.

I’ve got anywhere from 60-90 minutes of freedom.

Here’s this week’s list of stuff to read………

But First

1) Mark Fisher Fitness Presents: Motivate & Movement LAB

I’ve had the honor of presenting at two previous iterations of the Motivate & Movement LAB (the brainchild of MFF’s Harold Gibbons) and it’s unequivocally one of the most unique events in the fitness industry.

Think: TED Talk, but with deadlifts and lots of f-bombs.

Anyways, the next LAB is this coming February, and will feature myself, Dan John, Pete Dupuis, my wife (Dr. Lisa Lewis), and several of the MFF coaching staff including Brian Patrick Murphy and Amanda Wheeler.

2) Spurling Spring Seminar

I’ll also be making a cameo up in Kennebunk, Maine this Spring for the Spurling Spring Seminar.

It’s not until April, but you can save BIG now ($100 off) by purchasing an (early) early bird ticket by clicking the link above.

UPDATE: The “Early” Early Bird Special ends this Sunday (1/14)……so act quick.

[Link also provides details on all the presenters and topics covered]

There aren’t many industry events that come into this neck of the woods, so hope to see you there!

Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work

17 Nutrition Tips That Change Your Life – TC Luoma

TC’s always good for some interesting tidbits and witty prose. This one didn’t disappoint.

Mobility Needs of the Female Strength Athlete – Trish DaCosta

Things like hypermobility (which tends to be more prevalent in females) and high-heels come into play when discussing the mobility needs of women.

Some awesome stuff in here from Trish.

Today’s Edge: Strengthen Your Adductors Part I and II – Tim DiFrancesco

I appreciate Tim’s insights and contributions to the strength & conditioning community. My brain does not work like his. He’s always thinking outside the box and coming up with stellar content.

If you’re not already, you should be checking out his website and social media accounts. He’s routinely providing short, bite-sized gems.

HERE’s Part I of Strengthen Your Adductors; and HERE’s Part II

Social Media Shenanigans



Making my way through @drsarahduvall Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist course and this slide resonated with me. As oxymoronic as it sounds, women that exercise through their pregnancy are often at MORE risk for pelvic floor issues. Many feel pressure to head to the gym as soon as possible after giving birth because they actually feel “okay.” However, this mentality can often lead to some dire circumstances because their body is still healing. Yeah, you may want to perform kipping pull-ups paired with handstand walks through a grenade field for AMRAP, but that doesn’t mean you should. You CAN still exercise, but it’s important, nay, crucial, to respect the notion that your body needs time to “catch up.”

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.

    I can imagine 'Today’s Edge: Strengthen Your Adductors Part I and II' being very helpful. I, for one, have neglected my adductors for some time when it comes to training my legs...also very much agree with your tweet regarding detoxes and live volcanoes. True say
