Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 6/21/19
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. 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….

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
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
I used to think it was cool (and I was doing the industry a favor) being an uppity coach who said stuff like “walking is life, stop saying it’s exercise.”
That was dumb.
It IS exercise, and undervalued.
Not all exercise has to be a ball-buster.
Walking = recovery. Do more.

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
STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Everyone remembers their first….;o)
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.
