Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 4/29/21
STUFF TO CHECK OUT FIRST
1. I Miss Doing In-Person Workshops
It’s been more than a year since I’ve done any in-person workshops, and now that vaccinations have started to improve things I’m thinking about venturing out again soon.
I’ve already begun talks with possibly doing TWO workshops in England this Fall, but I am also itching to travel around the States too.
I’ve tossed Charleston, SC out there, as well as Philadelphia, PA (the latter would likely be a Strong Body Strong Mind Workshop with my wife, Dr. Lisa Lewis).
I’m hoping I can pull them off, but am also open to other options as well – Milwaukee, Memphis, Mordor, whatever.
If you’re interested in possibly hosting me for a day or two (or know of a gym who’d be a good fit), please reach out and let’s chat.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
I almost exclusively have all my clients use the trap (hex) bar to perform their deadlifts.
It’s more user friendly and all I really care about is that they’re able to lift some appreciable weight in a safe(r) manner.
Prioritizing competency over ego is a game changer for many.

STUFF TO READ WHILE YOU’RE PRETENDING TO WORK
Don’t Be One Dimensional – DeMarco Crum
It’s okay to have a life outside of strength & conditioning.
Just as well, it’s okay to infuse your love of Star Wars, bo staffs, and/or Prancercising into your day-to-day interactions with your clients and athletes.
Just my two cents, but being authentic is just as powerful of a marketing tool as the most powerful SEO algorithm devised by Skynet.
Demarco does a nice job summarizing the same theme in this article.
The Four Horsemen of the Spine – Kelly Starrett
Just some simple, easily applicable information that will be useful for the bulk of people out there dealing with back pain.
Memorable Fitness Movies – Pete McCall
The only way this could have been more “Tony” is if this post were titled…
…“Memorable Fitness Movies (While Eating Beef Jerky)”
Suffice to say, yes, you’ll recognize some obvious choices. But you may be surprised at some of Pete’s picks too.
