Stuff To Read While You’re Pretending To Work: 5/4/18
I’m in Kansas City for The Fitness Summit at the moment and basking in the company of friends and colleagues.
Dean Somerset and I were invited in a day early to put on a special Pre-Conference where we spent four hours covering new material we plan to use for our upcoming (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint.
No one left early or threw a table at us so I consider that a success.
Anyhoo: I need to get back to hugging it out with people. Onto this week’s list.
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. Even More Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Dates/Locations Announced
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, Hoth – 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, Edmonton, 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.
Go HERE to register in the announced cities.
My wife and I will be in Bonn, Germany on Saturday, June 30 to put on our 1-day Strong Body-Strong Mind workshop.
I’ll be speaking to assessment, coaching up common strength exercises (squats, deadlifts), and how to better “match” your programs to your client’s abilities and goals.
Lisa will be discussing how to better manage client expectations, motivation, and how to adopt better mindset strategies for success.
And then we’ll have a beer….;o)
Spots are limited and the Early Bird rate is still in effect (but not for long).
For more details (including itinerary and registration) go HERE.
^^^ It’s so good we didn’t even feel the need to come up with a witty title for it.
After my workshop in Germany I head over to London to take part in a 2-day event (the weekend of July 7th) with my friend and colleague (and handsomest man alive) Luke Worthington.
This one is filling up fast…..go HERE for more info.

Social Media Shenanigans
Brutal truth: if you’re not as lean as you want to be maybe instead of debating minutia like “how many carbs you can tolerate” (should I eat 172 or 112 carbs/day?) you just, you know, need to actually shut up and train. Seriously, go to work.
