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

Philadelphia, PA: April 27-28th (<– EARLY BIRD rate ends THIS WEEKEND).

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada: May 25-26th

Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th

Melbourne, Australia: July 20-21st (<— JUST ADDED. Includes bonus “Psyche Skills for Fitness Pros” pre-workshop with Dr. Lisa Lewis).

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. 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, along with traveling over from the UK, is one of the best and brightest coaches I know.

30 Days of Shoulders. . Day 6: Improving Overhead Mobility (Serratus). . NOTE: I promise the more meatheady, Tony can you please tell me how to get jacked, shoulder stuff is coming soon…😉. . We want the shoulder blades to be able to move around the ribcage (protraction), albeit with as much joint “congruency” as possible. . Meaning: we want the scapulae and rib cage to be making out and staying in contact with one another . Here are a few drills I like to help with targeting the Serratus Anterior: . 1. Serratus Slides. . 2. Scapular Push-Ups. . 3. Push Aways.

What’s the Real Story Behind the Egg Study?  – Abby Langer

Maybe I liked this article because I eat roughly 20-30 eggs per week and it validates what I’ve suspected  all along…..

….people need to chill the fuck out when it comes to eggs.

What Strength Coaches Should Know About Physical Education – Jeremy Frisch

Not to be confused with Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD), physical education is often lobbed into the same category as strength & conditioning.

It’s not.

“The purpose of scholastic PE is to help transform a child  into an adult,  not provide a starting point to becoming an athlete.”

Also, slow clap to Jeremy for highlighting the importance of DODGEBALL in the PE curriculum!

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. Glad to see kipping pull-ups didn’t make the list….;o)
