STUFF TO CHECK OUT FIRST
1. COACHED: Raise the Bar Conference – Early Bird Rate Ends This Week.
I’m excited to announce that I will be part of the Raise the Bar Conference. An event focused on the missing links in our industry: Communication, collaboration, connection, behavioral psychology, business & marketing skills, and much more.
When: February 4th-6th, 2022
Where: BioFit Performance, Oviedo, FL (Orlando area)
And more importantly who? Who will be presenting at this event?
I gotta say: This is undoubtedly one of the most stacked line-ups I have ever seen; even more than the 1990 Oakland Athletics.
Spots will fill up fast, act quickly – HERE.
SOCIAL MEDIA SHENANIGANS
You don’t need to follow a fancy algorithm in an Excel spreadsheet to make progress in the gym.
Pick a load & a rep range (8-12). You don’t up the weight until you hit 12 reps on EVERY set. Once you do, add 5-10 lbs, start over.
For beginners, this approach will go a long way.

Coordination: The Neglected Part of Fitness – Shane McLean
It’s true: How many times have you come across someone who, upon being asked what they’d really love to improve on, they came right out and said, “you know what, I could use some more coordination. That’s what I’m missing in my life. Who needs pecs?”
In all seriousness, Shane does a great job breaking down what coordination is and WHY you need more of it in your training repertoire.
