1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 2019 Locations & Dates
Philadelphia, PA: April 27-28th
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada: May 25-26th
Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th
Singapore, Republic of Singapore: July 20-21st
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.
Find out more details 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 is currently in effect ($50 off regular price) and ends soon.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
I think if more trainers and coaches would just shut up and let their (potential) client do more of the talking they’d likely see a better percentage of people hiring them. That, and stop talking over people’s heads. No one cares you can break down the Kreb’s Cycle.

Anti-Flexion Squats. . I saw @robertlinkul post about these the other day and thought to myself, “huh, that’s pretty bad ass and I’m an idiot for never having thought of it.” I also thought “these would be a great fit for my IN-SEASON basketball players.” . Here’s @ben_murray2 (starting point guard for the undefeated, and #1 MA state ranked Brookline High basketball team) performing them during yesterday’s training session. . Perfect variation to train the squat pattern, albeit with minimal axial loading, in addition to torching the anterior core.
STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist (Self Study) – Dr. Sarah Duvall
If you train women, you owe it to yourself to consider taking this course.
What I LOVE about Sarah’s approach is that not only does she provide a thorough deep dive into the realm of postpartum training and considerations, but she ADVOCATES strength training as an integral component.
In her words:
“You need to lift shit, to fix shit.”
I’ve recently been re-acquainting myself with the material and it’s really helped to open my eyes to knowledge gaps in this area in addition to appreciating just how much ATTENTION TO DETAIL is required when working with this population.
My wife is two-years postpartum and has been dealing with right sided hip pain for a while now, and it just so happens I watched the section on glute clenching and femoroacetabular movement this morning and it punched me in the mouth.
I had several light bulb moments.
Sarah currently has this course on SALE for $150 off the regular price, but it ends this coming Monday (1/21).
Go HERE, you won’t be sorry.

Sometimes I hate him so much he’s so smart.

It’s not just about squats and deadlifts, yo.
