Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 4/19/19
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint – 2019 Locations & Dates
Philadelphia, PA: April 27-28th (<– Next weekend, always room for more).
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada: May 25-26th
Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th
Melbourne, Australia: July 19-21st (<— Includes bonus “Psych 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
NOTE: Early Bird rate for this event is $100 OFF the regular price and the deadline is only a few weeks away.
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.

STOP telling your clients/athletes:
– They’re broken.
– They’re dysfunctional.
– They need to be fixed.
– Focus on what they CAN do.
– Show them there’s work to be done, but be emphatic on showing them success.
– Use more positive verbiage.
– Don’t do kipping pullups

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Create the Perfect Meal – Dr. John Berardi
It’s no secret that a well-balanced meal (typically, not always) contains the “big 3″….protein, carbohydrates, and fat. But how much of each should you eat? More importantly, how do you take all three and go about conjuring up a meal that doesn’t taste like cardboard box sprinkled with sawdust?
Thankfully the people over at Precision Nutrition made a nifty infographic to make things easier.

You need to be more like a buffalo.
