Boston Strategic Strength Workshop: June 8-9th

Share This:

Myself and my good friend, Luke Worthington, will be putting on a 2-day event in Boston this summer titled the Strategic Strength Workshop.

Strategic Strength Workshop

We’ll be spending two days covering everything from upper/lower extremity assessment, program design, corrective exercise, how to coach up things like deadlifts, squats, and not kipping pull-ups, in addition to trying not to swoon too much over Luke’s British accent.

Who This Workshop is For: Personal trainers, strength coaches, physical therapists, athletic trainers, people who like to lift heavy things, people who would like to lift heavy things someday, people who would like to lift heavy things the right way, and Jason Bourne.

Who This Workshop is Not For: Dementors, ghosts, Balrogs, and Virgos.

Other Pertinent Tidbits

  • This event will be approved for 1.4 CEUs via the NSCA.
  • Luke’s the shit and this will be the first time he’s presenting in North America. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of the smartest coaches I know.
  • Okay, whatever, I’ll say it: I have a man-crush on Luke.1

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
  1. Luke, I hope that’s not weird.
