Elite Training Mentorship – I normally post my updates here once a month, but this month, it’s especially exciting, as we’re running at “30 days for $1” trial at ETM, and as a bonus for signing up, you get all the presentations from the Fitness Business Weekend.  So, effectively, you’re receiving education on the training and business sides of the fitness industry, and you certainly can’t beat the price!  Head over to the Elite Training Mentorship site for details, but don’t wait, as the deal ends this Friday at midnight.

By the way, for those interested, my in-service this month was “Understanding Common Shoulder Conditions and Surgeries,” and I also had two articles and exercise demonstrations posted.

He cites some specific examples, but just as importantly, encourages you to consider how these three words apply to your own training.

Is it Dangerous to Squeeze the Glutes During Hip Extension Exercises? – This was a great Q&A from Bret Contreras on how to cue athletes during exercises like glute bridges, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings.
