1. (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.

2. RISE Fitness Business Conference – San Jose, CA

I’ve had to decline speaking at this event in the past due to prior engagements1, but I’m headed to San Jose this year baby.

And I……..pumped.

I’ve never been to the Bay area so I’m excited for that. But I’m even more excited for the THREEdays of melt your face knowledge that’ll be under one roof.

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.

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.



Instagram – 30 Days of Deadlifts

I’m a week into my series “30 Days of Deadlifts.”

This was the video that kicked things off.

Plenty more to come so be sure to follow or check in on me over in IG world.

30 Days of Deadlifts (not necessarily in a row). Success with the deadlift will always be predicated on having a masterful setup. If you start in a poor position, you’re (probably) going to have a poor deadlift. 1. Use The WEDGE. 2. Think: “Armpits over the bar, with maximal hamstring tension.” Start there are you’re going kick ass

Key to Career Success – Dr. John Berardi

John first started writing for T-Nation back in the early 2000’s and eventually started Precision Nutrition which is now a 200 million dollar company and one of the most respected entities in the industry.


How did he do it?

Was there some secret morning ritual, a daily hack, or maybe he cut a deal with Rumplestiltskin?

None of the above, actually.

As always John keeps it real and provides a ton of practical insights.

Building a Successful Career: Positioning and Intent – Dean Somerset

Not to steal any light from the first article, but this was also a fantastic read from my brother of another mother, Dean Somerset.

In short:

1. Put in the work.

2. Leverage your strengths.

3. Dean and I are non-sexual life partners.

5 Years of Insane Gains – Paul Carter

Why couldn’t have Paul written this back in 1993?



This is a MUST read for anyone newbies out there reading.

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.
  1. Prior engagements = defending my title at Kumite
