Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 2/16/18

It’s Friday.

You know how we do.


1) The Fitness Summit

I had to take a break from The Fitness Summit last year for two reasons:

1. Eating way too many cookies.

2. But mostly because I succeeded in making a baby and my wife would have tossed me so much shade if I was all like “Hey Babe, going to KC for three days. Toodles.”

Well this year I’m back and excited to take part in a Fitness Summit first. Dean Somerset and I will be putting on a Pre-Conference day where we’ll spend a few hours test driving some new material as a follow-up to our Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint.

Tentatively titled The More Completer Hip & Shoulder Blueprint.

We’ll be taking deep dive into squat and deadlift technique: discussing ankle, foot, hip and upper extremity considerations in conjunction with regressions/progressions and programming. Whether you’re a coach or just someone who likes to lift heavy things you’ll undoubtedly learn something. And if not, cool, you still get to hang out with us for a few hours.

Registration is now open for returning and new attendees. Come experience one of the best fitness events of the year.

2) Spurling Spring Seminar

I’m excited to announce that both myself and my wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis, will be presenting at the inaugural Spurling Spring Seminar at Spurling Fitness in Kennebunk, ME in a few months.

If you live in New England and you’re a fitness professional you won’t want to miss it. Early bird special is currently in effect.

Keeping the ‘Coach’ In Science-Based Coaching – James Krieger

Having the ability to differentiate between what you think should be happening and what actually is happening is often what separates the good coaches from the excellent ones.

Excellent article from James 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.

    I've changed my mind about artificial sweeteners in the past year (used to drink them). To compare diet to regular Coke seems irrelevant; the question is whether it's "healthy" or not (with whatever that means to each person). The information that changed my mind was that artificial sweeteners can have effects on gut health and metabolism in negative ways, although I don't know how much of an effect. So, like ice cream, I just generally try to limit how much I ingest. Unless rum is involved.
