This workshop will piggyback on the material Dean Somerset and I
covered in the original Complete Shoulder & Hip

With this iteration, though, we’ll be going a bit deeper into
the coaching and programming side of things:

  • How to program around common injuries.
  • How to “connect” the appropriate exercises to the
  • How to really add value with your assessment process.
  • How to squat and deadlift like a boss.

2. Strategic Strength Workshop – Boston, MA

Luke and I did this workshop last summer in London and figured
it’s only fair to bring it State side.

Combined we have 30+ years of coaching experience (I.e., one
Mike Boyle or Dan John) and this workshop will be two days where we
uncover every nook and cranny as it relates to how we assess our
clients/athletes and how we best prepare them for the rigors of
every day life/sport.

This will be a unique opportunity for people to learn from
myself, but especially Luke, who, along with traveling over from
the UK, is one of the best and brightest coaches I know.

3) Strong Savvy Cyclist & Triathlete Podcast

I was invited onto the Strong Savvy Cyclist & Triathlete
Podcast recently hosted by my good friend Menachem Brodie.

Whenever he and I start chatting we tend to lose track of time.
We covered a litany of topics in this episode, but we tried our
best to stick to shoulder training for endurance athletes.

Check it out Part I


I’ve been putting in more (supported) Hip
Airplanes into my client’s warmups. Great closed chain drill that
allows the acetabulum (hip socket) to move about a fixed femur. Try
em before a squat session.

You’re welcome.

30 Days of Shoulders. . Day 5: Improving Overhead Mobility (Upper
Traps). . In order to move the arms overhead it’s kinda important
to improve scapular protraction, posterior tilt, and maybe most
important of all…upward rotation. . 3 muscles play a role in
upward rotation: serratus anterior, as well as the upper and lower
traps. . All act as force couples to “pull” the shoulder blade
into upward rotation as the humerus elevates overhead, kinda like
when the Night King pulled a “come at me, bro” pose toward Jon
Snow after the battle at Hardhome. . Anyway, first up is the upper
traps, the evil step child of shoulder health. It’s often
neglected because that area tends to be OVERactive in the computer
guy population. . However, in the athletic/lifetime meat head
realm, the upper traps can often be lengthened and UNDERactive; not
to mention have ramifications on overall shoulder health when they
don’t pull their weight with regards to scapular function (upward
rotation). . There are MANY drills to consider, but here are two I
use often with my clients and athletes: . 1. Forearm Wall Slides
with Reach 2. Face Pulls. . SIDE NOTE: @dsomerset1 and I cover all
things shoulders (and hips) in our (Even More) Complete Shoulder
& Hip Blueprint workshop. . 2019 Locations: – Philadelphia,
PA (<- early bird rate ending soon). – Edmonton, Alberta,
Canada – Sydney, Australia – Melbourne, Australia . Click link

The Science of Finding the Perfect Squat Stance
– John Rusin
& Ryan DeBell

I LOVED this article.

If I could make out with it I would.

Nope, that wasn’t weird at all to say.

But seriously, John and Ryan very much mirror my sentiments with
regards to squat assessment and squatting technique. Except, you
know, they’re way smarter than I am. So, it’s more appropriate
to say I mirror THEIR sentiments.

Anyway, read it.

Meal Plans Usually Suck
Brian St. Pierre

Most people want (or feel they need) a meal plan in order to
“succeed” with their diet.

They rarely work long-term (because they fail to address

No one ever gets excited to eat a pea salad with 3oz of chicken
sprinkled with sawdust.

Brian shows you a better way.

Won’t Give You a 6-Pack
– Shara Vigeant

The adage “you can’t out-train a poor diet” is very much

Exercise doesn’t burn as many calories as you think it does.
So, does this mean you should chalk exercise up as a pointless
endeavor with regards to hitting your body composition goals?

Hell no.
