 1. Strong Body-Strong Mind – Boston, MA (<– THIS WEEKEND)

Last chance.

Dr. Lisa Lewis and I will be holding another Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop in Boston, MA on Sunday, August 12th.

1. We offer both a Professional and Student rate.

2. CEUs will be available via the NSCA.

3. Predator Handshakes are free.

For more details (including itinerary and registration) go HERE.

2. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Houston, TX

This workshop will piggyback on the material Dean Somerset and I covered in the original Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint.

But now.


….It’s the (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint.

A bunch of wordsmiths we are.

With this iteration, though, we’ll be going a bit deeper into the coaching and programming side of things:

  • How to program around common injuries.
  • How to “connect” the appropriate exercises to the client/athlete.
  • How to squat and deadlift like a boss.

All registrants to this course (as well as future dates in Ljubljana, Slovenia, Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, Minas Tirith) will receive a free download of CSHB 1.0 so that you’re up-to-speed on the content Dean and I will be covering.

To register and for moe details go HERE.

3. RISE Fitness Business Conference – San Jose, CA

I’ve had to decline speaking at this event in the past due to prior engagements (and because of Kumite), but I’m headed to San Jose this year baby.

The line-up is spectacular and I’m honored to be included amongst such esteemed company – Pat Rigsby, Mark Fisher, Molly Galbraith, Kellie Hart, Craig Ballantyne, and Scott Rawcliffe, to name a few.

I’ll be speaking about shoulder assessment.

I’ll also be booking a photographer soon because my current headshot is god awful.

If you’re a fitness professional looking to take his or her’s career to the next level this is an event you won’t want to miss.

Full details and registration are HERE.




This is sooooo funny. In short: there’s no such thing as “bad posture.” The only bad ones are ones you’re always doing. It’s important to allow our bodies to experience a multitude of positions and postures. Don’t listen to people on the internet who wax poetic about avoiding “x” posture at all costs. Real life is different than the internet. NOTE: for some reason my Repost app didn’t tag @beardthebestyoucanbe for the epic video. Please, everyone, slow claps should be directed towards him.

Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work

Fitness: The Healthiest Industry, Creating the Unhealthiest Minds – Lee Boyce

Lee has written many things that are well-written, poignant, and thought provoking. I always appreciate his willingness to write & say things many of us are sheepish to point out ourselves.

This is superb.

The Lost Are of Conditioning For Strength, Performance, & Recovery – Dr. John Rusin & Jason Brown

Really good article on the importance of AEROBIC training, and how to program it intelligently to enhance & compliment weight training.

Why You Should Be Flexible With Your Programming – Bryan Krahn

Bryan = Dreamboat

We always discuss the importance of flexible DIETING, but not too often do we take the same concept and apply it towards our training.

Fantastic message from Bryan in this one.

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.
