Oh, hello.

It’s Friday.

You know the drill.


1. Coaching Competency: DC

Spots are still available for my Coaching Competency workshop in Sterling, VA in a few weeks.

For $129 you get to hang out with me for seven hours, talk about assessment, program design, deadlifts, and LOLCat memes. This event has been approved for CEUs via the NSCA.

Go HERE for full details.

2. Free Meat via ButcherBox

NOTE: This offer ends on the 31st!!!!

ButcherBox may be my most favorite thing outside of kitten cuddles and a Lord of the Rings marathon.

How it works is so simple it’s silly:

  • You go to the site and curate your own box of delicious cuts of meat.
  • It’s delivered to your doorstep.
  • Cook that shit and eat it.

My wife and I have been using the service for a while now and it’s always serves as a monthly highlight.

For a limited time only, all new subscribers to ButcherBox will receive free Filet Mignon AND Bacon AND $10 off their initial order.

All you to do is click THIS link. Fist pumps optional.

3. Even More Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Coming Soon

Dean Somerset and I are currently in the throes of drumming up new content for our staple workshop series.

We’ve presented this workshop all over the world – London, Vancouver, Oslo, Prague, Boston, LA – and even turned it into a popular digital product HERE so everyone can enjoy it.

We’ve already nailed down dates in Slovenia, Houston, and LA this fall (2018) and are also in talks to bring it to Detroit, Philadelphia, Australia, and Singapore in 2019.

If you’re someone who’d like to host this event/participate in a tickle fight please reach out to either Dean or myself.


MASS 2 – Pat Davidson

Pat Davidson made people cry with MASS, his phenomenally popular program he released a few years ago.

MASS 2 will make people weep.

For a limited time only, you can get in on the action at 15% off the regular price if you go HERE and type gentilcore15 in the coupon area at checkout.

100 Reasons to Deadlift – Tyler Read

Dang, I don’t think I could come up with 100 reasons.

Well played, Tyler.

Shark Habits and Pirate Maps – Dan John

Stop complicating things in your life (and gym)…adopt shark habits.

Dan is wise.

Social Medial Shenanigans



Treating your warmup sets the same as work sets is important. Top video = full set up and execution at 135 lbs. Bottom video = full set up and execution at 420 lbs. Both are identical….down to foot stance, how I get my breath and set ribcage, and even that weird shimmy I do right before I pull. Treating your warmup sets with more respect is not only a great way to practice pristine technique but also a great way to cement good habits so if or when things go awry you’re less likely to destroy the back of your pants.

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.
