Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 5/31/19
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
1. (Even More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint Workshop – 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.
Find out more details HERE.
2. Strategic Strength Workshop – Boston, MA
Luke (Worthington) 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.
- Upper/Lower Extremity Assessment
- Technique Audits (how to coach common strength training exercises)
- Ways to integrate PRI (Postural Restoration Institute) strategies that don’t make your brain hurt.
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 it in Boston, London, Toronto, 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….

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
This may come across a bit sacrilegious, but I’m going to say it anyway.
More often than not, when working with general population clients, there’s limited need to follow an advanced periodized program.
But that’s going to be day to day rather than months ahead

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Calories, Sex, & 100 Year Old People – Brandon Mancine
A case for NOT counting calories.
Once you’re done throwing your face into the computer screen, give this a read. I think it sends a great message.
Practical Program Design Mastery – Nick Tumminello
NOTE: I get zero financial kickback for pointing my audience towards this resource. It’s just really, REALLY fucking good.
We like to overcomplicate things, especially when it comes to writing training programs:
- Should I use 3×10, 10×3, no wait, 2×15?
- Should I put in conditioning on the day of training or as a stand alone day?
- How would I implement rest/pause sets? Drop sets? Compound sets?
- Pants optional?
Nick is brilliant when it comes to this stuff and I encourage any fitness pro (or anyone who writes their own programs) to check this bad boy out.
Why PE Should Be Required From Kindergarten to College – Robert Roy Britt
I have a toddler.
I swear to god I will go Billy Madison on everyone’s ass if his school takes away recess and PE.
