Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 10/19/18
I’m currently in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I’m here teaching the (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint with my brother from another mother, Dean Somerset.
Man, this is a beautiful country. I mean, take a look at THIS. (<— FYI, not a pic of my biceps).
Anyhoo, we’re taking a brief hiatus from walking around and I figured I’d post a quick Stuff to Read post.
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 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.
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.
To register and for moe details go HERE.
2. Coaching Competency Workshop – NYC
I’ll be back in the city that never sleeps this Fall to put on my popular Coaching Competency workshop.
Albeit this will be condensed version (five hours instead of seven); a fitness amuse bouche if you will.
EARLY BIRD RATE ends next week.
Full details (itinerary, location, and cost) can be found HERE.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
You don’t HAVE to squat, deadlift, bench press, row, OLY lift, powerlift, do Turkish get-ups till you’re blue in face, participate in bodybuilding or CrossFit in order to see results.
All are fine, none are the “x” factor.
You DO need to train with INTENT and with purpose.

I love utilizing the hollow position with my clients. It’s a versatile way to add variety and help people appreciate what it REALLY means to “own” full-body tension. . Here’s an exercise I stole from my friends at @bostonstrengthtraining that ups the ante on the hollow position adding in a band pullover. . Here’s my client Sara crushing it. She makes it look easy, so don’t be fooled.
