Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 5/24/19

Whoa – who was the a-hole this week and barely wrote anything
for the site?

And by “anything” I mean “zero, zilch, nada.”

My bad.

But it was for good reason. I travelled to Colorado Springs this
week to film some stuff with the National Strength &
Conditioning Association (NSCA) for their upcoming 2019 (Virtual)
Personal Trainers Conference, as well as made a cameo appearance at
T-Nation
headquarters
.

Man, between those two establishments AND the National Olympic
Training Facility AND The Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs is
one buff and beautiful city.1

Also, as it happens, I’m off to Edmonton (<– that’s in
Canada by the way) tomorrow to go film the (Even More) Complete
Shoulder & Hip Blueprint with Dean Somerset this weekend.

So, yeah, it was a busy week. SO GET OFF MY BACK YOU BIG
JERK

I love you.

BUT FIRST…CHECK THIS STUFF OUT 1. (Even
More) Complete Shoulder & Hip Blueprint Workshop 
– 2019
Locations & Dates

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada: May 25-26th
at SVPT
Fitness
. (<– THIS weekend).

Sydney, Australia: July 13-14th at Clean Shred.

Melbourne, Australia: July 19-21st and Melbourne
Strength & Conditioning
. (<—  Includes bonus
“Psych Skills for Fitness Pros” pre-workshop with Dr. Lisa
Lewis).

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

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
    client/athlete.
  • How to really add value with your assessment process.
  • How to squat and deadlift like a boss.

Find out more details HERE.

2. Strategic
Strength Workshop
 – Boston, MA

Luke (Worthington) 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.

  • Upper/Lower Extremity Assessment
  • Technique Audits (how to coach common  strength training
    exercises)
  • Ways to integrate PRI (Postural Restoration Institute)
    strategies that don’t make your brain hurt.

This will be a unique opportunity for people to learn from
myself, but especially Luke, who is one of the best and brightest
coaches I know. This will be his first time teaching in the
States.

3. Strong
Body-Strong Mind Workshop 
– Chicago, IL

This will be the only time Dr. Lisa Lewis and I will be
presenting this workshop together in 2019. In previous years
we’ve presented it in Boston, London, Toronto, Bonn (Germany), 
and Austin, TX.

This 1-day workshop is targeted towards fitness professionals
and digs a little deeper into what really “bogs” them down and
stresses them out….

…their clients!

I still find one of the hardest things for
me as a coach is to remember to keep things simple.

I get in my own way overthinking things. The best programs I
write (and not coincidentally the ones clients tend to like the
best) are the “simple” ones.

Speed Training For
Hockey
 –  Kevin Neeld & Travis Pollen

Fun Tony Fact: I can count on one hand the
total number of times I’ve ever attempted to skate on ice. I
say “attempted” because I believe the longest I’ve ever
stayed upright before crashing to the ground (and taking someone
with me) is nine seconds.

That said, despite my lack of skating skills I know a great
program when I see it. Kevin and Travis have produced an
outstanding resource here, and if you work with hockey players this
is an absolute NO-BRAINER.

Speed Training for Hockey is currently on sale at a very fair
price, but it only last through this weekend.

Check it out HERE.
