BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – Ljubljana, Slovenia AND Los Angeles, CA
This workshop will piggyback on the material Dean Somerset and I covered in the original Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint.
….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.
Ljubljana, Slovenia – October 20-21st. (<— EARLY BIRD rate still in affect)
Los Angeles, CA – November 17-18th. (<— EARLY BIRD rate still in affect)
All registrants to this course (as well as future dates in 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.

2. RISE Fitness Business Conference – San Jose, CA
I’ve had to decline speaking at this event in the past due to prior engagements, but I’m headed to San Jose this year baby.
I’ve never been to the Bay area so I’m excited for that. But I’m even more excited for the THREE days 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.
3. Appearance on the Saved By the Barbell Podcast
Last weekend Dean Somerset and I were in Houston, TX to put on our (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint workshop.
Of course the first thing we did was hit up some BBQ.
Immediately after that we recorded this episode of Saved By the Barbell hosted by Kevin Warren.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
If YOU (the fitness professional) can’t explain the “why” behind an exercise or modality in a program how in the heck do you expect your client/athlete to buy into it much less understand it?

30 Days of Deadlifts Day 19: Get Those Hips Through, Yo The lockout can be problematic for some people in that one of two scenarios comes about: 1. Substituting excessive lumbar extension for hip extension. 2. Butt sticking out syndrome. In either case the cue is to tell people to “finish tall” or “stand tall” or “stop doing that because my eyes hurt.” Finish with the hips (squeeze the glutes) at the top.

In my experience working with women on body image, I have become convinced that complimenting and praising a woman’s appearance in today’s social atmosphere actually does her — and all women everywhere — a disservice.
