Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 7/5/19
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.
BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT
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….

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!

Push Up Tip: If you’re not feeling them in your abs, like a lot, you’re probably doing them wrong.
– Don’t let your hips sag (think: glutes on, abs on; also flex your quads).
– Finish at top. Push floor away (Shoulder blades should move around rib cage).

Squat Tip #2: Face Forward (For the Love of God) . I think the end of the video gets my point across…😉
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.
