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.

2. Strong Body-Strong Mind Workshop – Chicago, IL (w/ Dr. Lisa Lewis)

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….

…their clients!

3. Talkin Entrepreneurial Shenanigans w/ Adam Rees

Adam Rees of GRIT Gym invited me onto his new “chat” and we covered things like my new gym venture, the industry in general, and, I don’t know, the fact I wasn’t wearing pants during this interview?


I totally was.1

Here’s a beauty of a drill I’ve been using of late with a handful of clients, including my wife (@drlewisconsulting ) who’s in this video. . I got this from @cliebenson and it works wonders with promoting hip stability, single leg balance, core stability, foot/ankle shenanigans, in addition to nudging people into tapping into their inner athlete. . Lisa’s using a Keiser machine in this video, but I’ve also had clients use s band too. . Works fine. . Aim for chest up and a SLOW return. I like to say 10% of your weight should be in the back leg. . 5-8 reps/side. . Juicy

42 Split Squat Variations for Big Legs, a Strong Trunk & Healthy Back – Scott Hansen

Staggered stance, B-stance, leaning this way, leaning that way, elevated. upside down, invisible…

…Scott thought of just about every single split squat variation for your viewing (and coaching) pleasure.

ALSO: I don’t know if he did this on purpose, but bonus points for the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” 42 reference.

Nerds for life!

Killing Keto – Eric Bach

Keto zealots loved this article about as much as vampires like garlic.

I thought this was a well written, well thought out piece.

Kudos to Eric for writing it.

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.
  1. Maybe.
