Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 1/22/21
STUFF TO CHECK OUT FIRST
1. Virtual Coaching Competency Workshop – March
Since I won’t be traveling anytime soon to present, I decided why not bring one of my workshops to YOU? I will be putting on my popular Coaching Competency Workshop this March over the span of three weekends.
I figured chances would be high many attendees would be fighting off the urge to commit seppuku staring at their computer screen for seven straight hours so made the executive decision to spread things out
- 3 Hours on 3/7
- 2 Hours on 3/14
- 2 Hours on 3/21
All attendees will receive a recording (and CEUs)1.
You can register at the EARLY BIRD rate now through 2/15. For more info go HERE.
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be one of 55+ industry leaders taking part in Kabuki Education Week that’ll be taking place February 1-7, 2021.
Kabuki Education Week – Hosted by Kabuki Strength – is a unique opportunity to attend 40+ live hour-long lectures (with Q&A) presented by the most respected and well established educators, coaches, clinicians, and athletes in the strength & fitness industry. This event brings together a wealth of knowledge across multiple domains; all condensed into week-long virtual format that allows you to attend as many courses as you choose with the added opportunity to purchase recordings.
You can register for my presentation (and save 50% through the end of the year) – The Hip: From Assessment to Badass – HERE.
Alternatively you can register for the ENTIRE event at the Early Bird rate – HERE.
This will undoubtedly be an event you won’t want to miss as the line-up, speaking as a fan boy myself, is one of the most impressive I have ever seen.
3. CORE @ Home
You can now purchase CORE @ Home for whatever you want to pay.
During the first quarantine I started a platform where I’d deliver 20-40 minute workouts that could be performed in everyone’s living room using minimal equipment.
In all I filmed 36 workouts using nothing but bodyweight, bands, and kettlebells and/or dumbbells. With many people still reticent to head back to their regular gyms (not to mention the scarcity of gym equipment out there to purchase) I figured this would be a nice opportunity to help.
Now that many parts of the US (and world) have started to implement a second wave of shut-downs, this resource is timely.
Whether you want to spend $1 or $99 (FYI: the latter enters you to win a 5×7 shirtless pic of me), the workouts are ready and available to start.

SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
The adductors tend to be a woefully neglected area. Copenhagen Plank variations are an easy entry point.
Here’s a progression where I add in a lower leg drive.
NOTE: Pull body up by driving TOP knee into the bench. That’s your adductor(s)…😉 pic.twitter.com/veOPEeiPC7

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Should You Be Taking Vitamin D? What You Need to Know – Abby Langer
Short answer: Yes.
However, don’t be a douche and suggest it has anything to do with reduced to risk of COVID-19 (my words, not Abby’s).
The Most Optimal Rest Period for Strength & Muscle Growth – Trish DaCosta
“How long should I rest between sets?”
It’s a common question and one Trish does an excellent job answering in this article.
Does Prehabilitation Really Matter? – Julie Hubbard
Surgery is never fun and should usually be used as a last resort. That said, for some it’s inevitable and the conversation of “prehab” work (and its efficacy) often comes up.
Is it a thing?
Does it work?
Can it improve post surgical recovery?
