Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 3/9/18
Can someone please make a legitimate rationale why we don’t just make “Daylight Savings Time” standard time year round?
Granted this is rooted from a selfish place and is all about me being a cantankerous, sleep-deprived parent of a one-year old.
SIDE NOTE: Lisa and I are finally heading out to go see Black Panther tonight. Up until this point I still feel Winter Soldier is the best Marvel movie yet, but I’m expecting my face to be melted tonight for sure. Can’t wait.
BUT FIRST…(STUFF TO CHECK OUT AND OTHER TIDBITS CURATED TO MAKE YOU A BETTER COACH OR HUMAN)
I’ve got a bevy of speaking engagements lined up for 2018, and next week begins the madness.
I’ll be in NYC speaking at a few Equinox locations on March 16th and 17th, and from there on out I’ve got a place to be at least one weekend every month for the foreseeable future.
It’s a nice feeling to be in demand.
I’d encourage you to click the link above or THIS one for more details/insights into where I’ll be and when.

Social Media Shenanigans
We all have bad days. Kid’s sick, spouse is angry, your favorite tv character died, whatever. It’s still imperative as a coach to show up and demonstrate to your athletes/clients that you WANT to be there.

The landmine is a very versatile piece of equipment. And it’s not just for upper body drills. Here’s one of my favorite lower body movements to do with it: Perpendicular 1-Legged RDL. I’m sure there’s a more eloquent way to explain it, but the different stance just feels less cumbersome and feels more natural to perform. Also, for those who may struggle with balance this landmine variation helps a bit.
