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), so make sure to take advantage of it while you can.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
Sport specific, schmort schmerlific
The better term is PERSON SPECIFIC training. Athletes don’t need to emulate their sport in the weight room. They need to use the weight room to address THEIR unique injury history, THEIR goals, and THEIR ability level. Just like everyone else.

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Factors Affecting Squat Stance and Form – Ryan DeBell
Not only does he pull off wearing a bowtie, but Ryan also pulls off always providing consistent, actionable content that I appreciate.
This was a recent podcast he recorded, however the link above does provide a bullet point list of all the factors discussed.
Not many people know this but I almost dodged out of my first public speaking event. It was back in 2009 and I was slated to speak at a local college here in Boston to a bunch of incoming freshman on “better nutritional choices in the cafeteria.”
I woke up at like 3 am that morning terrified, telling my girlfriend (now wife) that I was thinking about calling in sick.
Can you even do that?
Anyway, she talked me out of it and no one died.
Since then I have spoken well over 50+ times all over the world and I’m 100% convinced that it’s helped me grow my business.
Mark Fisher is THE best public speaker I know and you should read this.
Even Flow: Your Menstrual Cycle and Your Workouts – Jennifer Blake
I work with a lot of women and I’d be lying if I said I took this into heavy consideration.
This article made me a better coach.
