Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 3/1/19
Lisa, Julian, and myself are heading down to Florida this weekend for a little vacation.
PS: Don’t worry: I’ll have a scattering of blog posts and guest posts all next week lined up. I don’t want you to miss me too much.
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 2019 Locations & Dates
Philadelphia, PA: April 27-28th (<– EARLY BIRD rate ending soon).
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.
This is a great opportunity for other fitness professionals to gain better insight into my assessment and program design process.
And cat memes.
Can’t forget the cat memes.
Full details (date, location, itinerary, how to register) can be found HERE.
3. Strategic Strength Workshop – Boston, MA
Luke and I did this workshop last summer in London and figured it’s only fair to bring it State side. Combined we have 30+ years of coaching experience (I.e., one Mike Boyle or Dan John) and this workshop will be two days where we uncover every nook and cranny as it relates to how we assess our clients/athletes and how we best prepare them for the rigors of every day life/sport.
This will be a unique opportunity for people to learn from myself, but especially Luke, who I think is one of the best and brightest coaches I know.

Reverse Nordic Curls. . This is a doozy I stole from @sivan_fagan_fitness who got it from @nick_tumminello (I think) who got it from He-Man (definitely). . A nice way to eccentrically train the quads with accommodating resistance without placing too much strain on the joints. . Started toying around with these myself last week (and with a few clients) and I really dig the “stretch” feeling and ever so slight quad pump at the end. . I’ve been using high(er) reps here: 15-20 more towards the end of a workout after squats or deadlifts. . Cameo appearance by the NT Loop.
