1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 2019 Locations & Dates
Philadelphia, PA: April 27-28th
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada: May 25-26th
Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th
Melbourne, Australia: July 19-21st (<— 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.

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 is one of the best and brightest coaches I know. This will be his first time teaching in the States.

WALL PRESS 1-LEGGED RDL. I like this as an intermediary single leg variation.
A traditional 1-legged RDL is a very advanced movement and one not many can pull off. This takes balance out of the equation, but also allows ample loading of working leg. pic.twitter.com/RxOcTQ8cFd

30 Days of Shoulders. . Day 15: The Decline Press. . Oftentimes if flat or incline press variations bother someone’s shoulders it’s not uncommon for the DECLINE press to feel just fine. . Why? . Simply put it reduces the degree of shoulder flexion. I.e., it helps keep trainees out of the “danger zone” or pain arc with regards to shoulder flexion. . This is HUGE because it allows for a training effect to be accomplished while using a shoulder friendly pressing variation. . Too, and as @drjohnrusin has stated recently, it’s never a bad idea to expose people to different angles of training to better challenge joint centration. Adding some variety in pressing motions can go a long ways in keeping shoulders healthy and performing at a high level for years on end. . The bigger lesson, though, is understanding you can always train around an injury or ouchie. Always.
The title says it all.
There’s more ways than just telling someone to lift more weight to make progress in the gym.
Training the England Football Legends, Harry’s Heroes – Luke Worthington
My good friend, Luke Worthingon, was tapped late last year to help get a group of former British soccer stars in shape for a game with their rivals…
All for a television show – Harry’s Heroes.
He was given the job of coming up with a 12-week plan to whip a bunch of retired soccer (er, excuse me, football) stars into game shape.
This was a BIG deal and the show is currently airing all its episodes weekly on ITV.
I’m very proud of my friend.
