I’m not scared to post misses. . Was hoping to hit 585×2, but hit a solid single instead. . I “think” I’ve got it in me, but lost my position/tension. . Also: gotta work on my @thetopstrengthproject aggression!

The Fitness Industry is Failing Regular People – Elsbeth Vaino

“Normal people” = those who don’t have lofty physical goals and/or workout 1-2x per week.

Great read from Elsbeth on this one.

How to Do a Single Leg RDL Without Falling On Your Face – Christa Sgobba

The single leg deadlift is a less intimidating exercise that it’s bilateral cousin. However, I’d argue it’s a more advanced movement.

I was happy to contribute to this article for SELF Magazine.

Which Barbell Squat Variation is Optimal For You? – Dr. Michael Mash

Are you someone with hip pain? Knees that feel like they’ve been put through a meat grinder? Maybe you’re a beginner or just someone who’s sole focus is to get as strong as possible.

Not all squat variations are created equal.

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.

    Hey Tony, I’m just getting started in the coaching/fitness industry (working on NASM CPT cert at the ripe age of 40) and would love to attend the DC workshop. Would you recommend it for someone in my relative “newb” status?

      Of course. I actually get a fair number of non-fitness pros who attend my workshops as well. I try not to get too deep into the woods on stuff and try my best to make all the information as accessible as possible.
