Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 11/30/18
It’s my 42nd Birthday today.
KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!!!
I’d like to sit here and say I have something cool planned today – like watching a Jason Bourne marathon, or, I don’t know, going to Sears – but, honestly, it’s just a normal Friday for me today.
Writing programs, writing this blog, training, and then maybe a celebratory pizza…;o)
Tomorrow, however, is the real show. My wife and I have a date at Del Frisco’s and then we’re going to go see Widows.
Nonetheless, lets get to this week’s stuff to read (and don’t be afraid to send me a Happy B-day note).
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint 1.0 on Sale
Dean Somerset and I have placed our flagship resource – Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint 1.0 – on sale all this week at 60% off the regular price.
As if learning anything and everything about shoulders and hips wasn’t enough, I’m going to donate $5 of every sale (from my links) to a local animal shelter here in Boston called Kitty Connection.
This was the shelter my wife and I adopted out cat, Dagny, from when we first moved in together and I like to donate to their cause each year.
The sale only last though this Sunday (12/2), so act quickly.
Help save a kitty (or dog) – HERE.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
If I had a nickel for every time a woman said she gets all “big-n-bulky” from strength training and then she was able to produce picture evidence of said “big-n-bulkiness” I’d have zero nickels.

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Never Have “Bad Luck” Again – Nia Shanks
Regardless of the choices we face or the events that happen throughout the day, we have two lenses we can choose to view them from. In one hand is the lens that distorts events as being “bad luck” or “shit” or “unfortunate.” In the other hand is the lens that homes in on what has happened, what is — free from distortion or distraction — and gives us the power to glimpse and choose to see “beauty” or “good” or, at the very least, reality. Without any messy extrapolation.
^^^Applies to dieting and training.

Steve GurtowskiRE: The Truth About Stand Desks - Terrific piece. The three point summary at the end is all you need to know. I think we, as professionals dealing with all types of physical performance, knew this all along. Now to educate the masses. RE: Total Youth Soccer Fitness - As a former collegiate athlete and as a soccer Dad, this is good coaching. Erica and I have chatted about my daughter's soccer experience, and I find Erica to be a tremendous resource. I was patiently waiting for her to roll out this product for 6 months. I gave it an initial skim, but it is good. She delivers. Good coaching. Good programming. Good advice.
