Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 5/10/19

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

Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th at Clean Shred.

Melbourne, Australia: July 19-21st and Melbourne Strength & Conditioning. (<—  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: The Early Bird rate of $100 OFF the regular price ends THIS WEEKEND (May 5th)

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.

3. Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop – Chicago, IL

This will be the only time Dr. Lisa Lewis and I will be presenting this workshop together in 2019. In previous years we’ve presented together in Boston, London,  Bonn (Germany),  and Austin, TX.

This 1-day workshop is targeted towards fitness professionals and digs a little deeper into what really “bogs” them down and stresses them out….

…their clients!

Lisa’s been working hard working her way back from a hip/glute “thingie” . . During today’s training session at @terrierstrength she hit a 185 lb DL with 80 (ish) lbs of chains going along for the ride. . Diesel doc in the house! . She JUST started a new IG account – @drlewisconsulting – that’s going to be more professionally based moving forward: her posting more on Psych Skills for fit pros as well as general levels of badassery like above. . If you’re a fit pro give her a follow.

How to Break Your Social Media Addiction – Tessa Yannone

This article doesn’t really have anything to do with fitness, but it does have A LOT to do with your health. My friend Tessa (who’s the head health/fitness honcho at Boston Magazine) asked my wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis (who’s the head honcho of Jedi mind tricks), to provide some basic suggestions on how people can begin to ween themselves off of social media.

Given how social media, in particular Instagram, has transformed the way we get and digest health/fitness information, this article is never more relevant.

Life, Fitness, and the Road to Hana – Pete Dupuis

There are many parallels between “life” and fitness. The one that reverberates most is….

“The journey is more important than the destination.”

This quickie blog post from Pete beautifully backs up that statement.

40 Years With a Whistle – Dan John

I was sent Dan John’s most recent opus the other day.

Of course I love it, as I do with pretty much anything that man writes.

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.
