Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 2/1/19
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
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.
3) Julian Turned Two
My son, Julian, turned two yesterday.
Yeah, he’s cute….;o)

Don’t expect “perfect” from your clients, especially new ones. Perfect technique, perfect nutrition compliance, etc. They don’t need the added pressure.
Instead, be a champion for PROGRESS.

One of my clients posted this on his Twitter account and I felt it prudent to share. . 1. I’ve always said the best “set/rep” scheme for most people is 3×52. . Find a way to get to the gym 3x per week, 52 weeks out of the year and something cool is going to happen. . 2. In this case, Perry (my client), went to the gym 4x per week and never missed a session. . He put close to 100 lbs on his DL, hit several other personal bests, and I’m pretty sure he has the largest biceps in his office. . The best part? Not the biceps. . He had ZERO injuries all year. . I repeatedly stressed to him “easy training is good training.” Sure, we had a few ball busters in there, but all in all every session was “get in, get your reps in, and get out.” . I’m very proud of Perry and all the hard work he put in. I told him what to do, but HE did the work. . CONSISTENCY is the best training program. . 3. I’m awesome…😉😄
STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
I’d Love to Get Started – Kristen Scott-Dixon
Nothing like a KSD article to kick everyone in the ass.
“All you have to do is start.
And then, moments will keep moving, as moments do.”
I thoroughly enjoy reading Krista’s writing. I mean, part me hates her guts because she’s soooo good. But then the other part of me remembers how much of a writing crush I have on her and all is forgotten.
The Future of Fitness Podcast – Eric Malzone
I’m always asked what are some podcasts that I like or listen to?
Eric is a superb interviewer and he has an uncanny ability to make conversation flow seamlessly. He’s also one of the more prolific podcasters, releasing a new episode every couple of days with some pretty big names to boot.
Dean Somerset, Dan John, Jonathan Goodman, Sarah Duvall, Pat Rigsby, Jessi Kneeland, and some weirdo with the last name Gentilcore.
What’s more he interviews an eclectic array of fitness professionals ranging from those who focus on body recomposition or the ketogenic lifestyle to those who’s cup of tea is fitness marketing and brand awareness.
It’s superb, and if you’re looking for a new podcast to follow you’re welcome.
Is Keto REALLY the Best Diet? Dissecting the Logical and Physiological Fallacies of Keto-mania – Mike Howard
If you don’t have the attention span to read the entire article, you can pick up the gist by looking at the charts at the end.
SIDE NOTE: HERE‘s my take on the Keto Craze, if you’re interested. I wrote it a few months ago and parallels very much with what Mike has to say (albeit Mike is way more eloquent than I).
