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
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
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.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
My wife hitting a bench PR of 170 lbs today. Haters may cry afoul about the butt coming off the bench to which I say…puh.

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.
