Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 3/7/19

A day earlier than usual.

I’m on vacation.

Deal with it…1


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

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 making my first appearance – ever (<— how’s that possible?) – in the wonderful state of North Carolina in a few weeks 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.

I couldn’t let @lilew13 have all the PR fun while away on vacation. . I hit a front squat PR of 310 this morning. . I typically train between 10-2 pm most days, so the fact I hit this at 7:30 AM basically makes me Jason Bourne.

Strength Chat Podcast w/ Steven Cuthbert

I had the pleasure of being invited onto the Strength Chat podcast which, as you may have guessed, isn’t about our favorite soup recipes.

In this episode I speak more on how I go about training “gen pop” clients and my approach to that demographic.

You can listen and download HERE.

Top 10 Deadlifting Mistakes and How to Fix Them – Dave Tate

This is a CLASSIC T-Nation article written by Dave Tate that they recently re-published. I re-read it myself – I remember reading it for the first time back in 2002 – and felt it prudent to pass it along to my readership in case anyone has missed it.

Shame on you….;o)

Training vs. Working Out – Dean Somerset


Nothing but a slow clap for this  one.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

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. I love you.
