Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 7/5/19

Share This:

I realize I have been very delinquent in keeping up with any semblance of consistent writing of late and I apologize.

I’m within the throes of getting ready for my Australia trip next week making sure client programs are updated and that I complete a few lingering projects before I leave.

Namely, preparing myself in the event a spider the size of a Volkswagon decides to cross paths with me while I am down there.

Nevertheless, onto this week’s stuff to read.

1. 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!

2. Physical Preparation Podcast w/ Mike Robertson

I spent 60 minutes catching up with my good friend (and fellow 90’s hip-hop fan), Mike Robertson, last week on his popular podcast.

In this episode we discuss gym ownership, the different between training gen pop clients and athletes, and WU-TANG!

Why You’re Not Making Progress – Melanie Redd

HINT: It’s not that lack of detox teas.

Let’s Stop Cliche-ing Failure and Be Human – Julia Eyre

Failure is what allows us grow.

Learning to fail (well) is a good thing.

Love this message from Julia.

Fat Shaming is in Bad Taste. Lets Not Move to Fit Shaming – Lee Boyce

“I’m all for no judgement, but if someone’s being kicked out of a gym for looking too intimidating, how different is that really from telling a large woman doing a conditioning workout in a sports bra and shorts that she should cover up?”

I appreciate Lee’s willingness to discuss hard, abstract topics that have no clear “right” answer.

Did what you just read make your day? Ruin it? Either way, you should share it with your friends and/or comment below.

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.
