Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 10/4/18

Share This:

I’m in beautiful San Jose, CA this weekend for the RISE Fitness Business Conference. Well, I think San Jose is beautiful; I flew in last night so I haven’t had the opportunity to actually see it.

It’s going to be a great weekend networking and listening to the likes of Pat Rigsby, Kellie Davis, Mark Fisher, Molly Galbraith, Craig Ballantyne, and many more speak on their craft.

Oh, and I’m giving a presentation too. On Sunday morning. At 9 AM.1

Anyway, I’m on east coast time and up at the butt-crack so lets get to this week’s stuff.


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.

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.

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.

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.

Full details (itinerary, location, and cost) can be found HERE.

We all should have goals.

5 Random Training Thoughts – Mike Robertson

I hate Mike, because my brain doesn’t work like his.

As always, some excellent stuff from him.

Joe Rogan Experience #1176 – Dom D’Agostino & Layne Norton


I know Joe Rogan has a very popular podcast, but truth be told I never watch or listen to it. However, this one featuring Dom D’Agostino and Layne Norton “duking it out” over the ketogenic diet was a really cool (and informative) to listen to.

Top to Bottom – Joe Kenn

When Joe writes about training, you should shut up, close the doors, put on some Sade, and read.

Okay, maybe the Sade is weird.

But you should read this.


Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

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. I told Khaled, the organizer of the event, to have the smoke machine, laser show, and great white shark ready. Don’t ask. It’s going to be awesome.
