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.
Los Angeles, CA – November 17-18th. (<— EARLY BIRD rate still in affect)
All registrants to this course (as well as future dates in 2019 in Detroit, Philadelphia, Edmonton, 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.1

2. RISE Fitness Business Conference – San Jose, CA
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 AND how to make killer cat memes.
This shindig is taking place NEXT WEEK, and there are still a few spots available.
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.

3. Coaching Competency – NYC
I’ll be back in the city that never sleeps this Fall to put on my popular Coaching Competency workshop.

Full details (itinerary, location, and cost) can be found HERE.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
One of the most valuable traits a coach can possess is staying quiet (sometimes). Allowing a client/athlete to marinate in doing a movement wrong, realizing it, and then self-correcting is invaluable.

My 30 Days of Deadlifts on IG is hitting the home stretch. Are you keeping up?

30 Days of Deadlifts Day 27: Deadlifts Don’t Have to Be Heavy On par with Day 26, the Landmine Deadlift is an alternative variation I like a lot because it grooves the hip hinge, is pretty much idiot proof, and allows trainees to accumulate a bit more volume with crushing their spine. I like to add these into a second day of deadlifts, maybe after hitting a few sets of medium range triples at say 3×3 @ 75-80%. Follow those with a few sets of Landmine Deadlifts at 2-3 sets of 8-12 reps. Or just perform them as a stand alone DL variation that day. Remember, deadlifts don’t ALWAYS have to be heavy, and they don’t ALWAYS have to be performed in a traditional manner.
