1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 2019 Locations & Dates

Philadelphia, PA: April 27-28th (<– EARLY BIRD rate ending in 3 weeks).

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada: May 25-26th

Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th

Melbourne, Australia: 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 really add value with your assessment process.
  • How to squat and deadlift like a boss.

Find out more details HERE.

2. Coaching Competency Workshop – Raleigh, NC

I’ll be in Raleigh, NC THIS WEEKEND putting on my popular Coaching Competency workshop

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.

For more information and to register you can go HERE.

4) The Ultimate Pull-Up Challenge

Lil’ Kim is the queen of hip-hop.

Meghan Callaway is the queen of pull-ups.

She’s running a pull-up challenge this month (starts Monday, March 18th) and everyone who participates will receive a FREE PDF outlining exercises and tips to improve your pull-ups.

Plus you get to be part of a motivating challenge.

Also, on an aside: Meghan’s popular Ultimate Pull-Up Program will be on sale at 25% off the regular price throughout the duration of the challenge (and I think the offer is available right now).

30 Days of Shoulders. . Day 1: Two Common Row Technique Errors. . There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to why someone’s shoulder may be bothering them: poor soft tissue quality, programming imbalance, weak this, overactive that, they wore blue on a Wednesday. I don’t know. . However, more often than not, and something I feel gets overlooked often, is how someone performs a certain exercise. . Take the DB Row for example. It’s not uncommon to see one of two (if not both) mistakes being made when someone performs the exercise: . 1. Too much glenohumeral extension (or the “more ROM must be better” scenario). . 2. Not allowing the scapulae to move around the rib cage. . Let that shit move, yo. . Address or consider those two things and I’m willing to bet your shoulders may feel better.

Brie Larson and Becoming Your Own Superhero in Real Life  – Josh Hillis

The main message I got from reading this (and it’s a profound I am always trying to champion myself): it’s more about the PROCESS than the  OUTCOME.

Trans Athletes: The Death of  Women’s Sports – Dani Shugart

WHEW- this one was a doozy and a topic I can”t imagine how hard it was to write about. Dani did so with tact,  grace, and  professionalism.

Strength Training for Runners:  It’s a  MUST – Menachem Brodie

There’s no shortage of myths and naysayers when it comes to attaching strength training to an endurance athlete. I want to give Menachem a hug so freakin bad for writing this article.

Well done!

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.
