More sensitive coaching from Stevey P

Well the cortisone shot in my shoulder was a rousing failure. Instead of my shoulder feeling like just a torn rotator it now feels like a torn rotator that had a needle jammed in it. Maybe in the next week or so it’ll calm down more but I don’t feel too optimistic about that.

I trained with the kid today and this is what we did.

High Pull/clean combos:
Worked up to 275lbs
2 pulls/1 clean
1 pull/2 cleans
3 cleans
225lbs: me and the kid shot gunned sets of 5 reps back and forth with no rest for 5 sets

Really light military presses on smith machine: 4 x 15 (still kinda hurt)

Rear delt dumbbell raise: 4 x 12

YTI dumbbell raise: 4 sets of 10 each

After I trained I had a client to work with, she is a new olympic lifter that has come to me for training. She just started only a few weeks ago and is doing very well so far. But she was struggling today and I was forced to give her a dose of some Stevey P love and gave her my sensitive coaching cue for the day: "Just settle down now and take your mind to another place . . . PREFERABLY A PLACE WHERE THEY FUCKING KNOW HOW TO LIFT WEIGHTS!" I don’t know what comes over me, the love just seems to pour out of me when I see people in need. I’m teaching an Olympic lifting clinic along with my wife at a crossfit “box” in Philly this Saturday so I hope they are ready that level of charm.

Cmon folks, I have really nifty printed versions of my E-book 'Iron Sport Strength Method' in stock at the gym. It's a must have for any home library. Just hit up my web store at
