This week’s Stuff You Should Read comes from Smart Group Training and Dean Somerset.
Inner Circle Updates
My next Inner Circle webinar will be on “5 Tweaks to Make Shoulder Exercises Even More Effective.” I’ll be discussing essentially a series of tips that I have picked up over the years, either from other clinicians or through published research, that you can use to tweak the way you perform shoulder exercises to make them more effective. This should be a fun one that I hope will give you some new ideas and twists on exercises. The webinar will be Tuesday August 25th at 8:00 PM EST, but will be recorded for those that can not attend live.
My last Inner Circle webinar on “Assessing Shoulder Capsular Mobility” is now launched. In this webinar, I discuss:
- The anatomy of the shoulder capsule and glenohumeral ligaments
- How different arm positions stress different aspects of the capsule
- How to determine which ligament and aspect of the capsule is tight
- How to assess range of motion at different positions to assess different portions of the capsule
- How to perform range of motion and capsular mobility assessment of the shoulder
- Clinical tips on the assessment technique

Advanced Core Training
Dean Somerset just launched a great new product this week called “Advanced Core Training.” Among the many great things about this product, Dean provides a detailed outline of core and hip function, and how he assesses these areas. He then provides a simplified walkthrough of his approach to core training that can be used for everyone from rehab to elite performance.
It’s on sale through August 8th for only $59 (regular price is $97). That’s a great price for a great product from Dean.
