Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 2/8/19
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.
NOTE: For the Singapore event you’ll need to use THIS link.
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) The Complete Trainers Toolbox
I’ve been pretty mum about it, but this is dropping next week…
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
One thing I try to keep young trainers/coaches more cognizant of when writing training programs is grip intensive exercise. Example: Row paired with DB Reverse Lunge. Both require a lot of grip. Maybe switch to GOBLET Reverse Lunge? Boom, you’re a program writing Jedi.

I was training later than usual tonight after a stressful day dealing with a sick toddler. . I wanted to include a baller “filler” in between my sets of squats and remembered this doozy I saw @coachleeboyce mention a few weeks ago. . I don’t recall what he called it, but it’s outstanding. . It’s low grade, won’t affect subsequent sets of “heavy” stuff, and hammers a lot of things most people need to work on: . Lumbo-pelvic stability, scapular stability (namely serratus activation/protraction), and even hip mobility (I.e., working through hip flexion & extension with minimal lumbar movement). . I really like this one. . If you’re gonna try it, I only have one piece of coaching advice: GO SLOW. . This drill is much more effective if you take your time and not rush. . Also: my triceps look gooooood.

Mike Robertson’s podcast is always a must-listen, but this one featuring my good friend Pete Dupuis was particularly eargasmic.
Pete has an uncanny ability to keep things real when it comes to discussing fitness business shenanigans. If you’re a gym owner (or plan to be)….fire this episode up.
