BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 2019 Dates
This workshop will piggyback on the material Dean Somerset and I covered in the original Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint.
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.
Check em out HERE.
2. Coaching Competency Workshop – Raleigh, NC
I’ll be making my first appearance – ever (<— how’s that possible?)( – in the wonderful state of North Carolina this coming March to put on my popular Coaching Competency Workshop.
Full details (date, location, itinerary, how to register) can be found HERE.
EARLY BIRD rate ($50 off) is in full swing at the moment and won’t last forever.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 = jumping into a shark’s mouth and 10 = everyone should perform this exercise), kipping pull-ups are a -82

Here’s yet another intermediary progression to the 1-Legged RDL; this time utilization an NT Band via @nick_tumminello . . The feedback provided by the band helps on a few fronts: . 1. The reach forward helps to nudge a bit more of a posterior weight shift back. . 2. Helps with more full body tension so there’s less body English shenanigans (I.e., less apt to rotate pelvis and/or crank through lumbar spine due to increased anterior core engagement). . Such a great way to groove a single leg hinge pattern for those who struggle with balance.

It’s always a great honor to be recognized for your work. It’s even cooler when it’s alongside so many other esteemed colleagues.

This is a BALLER story.
Next time a hangnail curtails your training, stop, punch yourself in the face, and also give this a read.
Strategies For Better Food Tracking – Jason Leenaarts
If nothing else this article drives home the point that the details – even the small, seemingly inane ones – matter.
