Rossolimo with Qc1

My coach plays this rossolimo for white and when I said him about your courses he again find a very interesting idea white doesnt play Qd2 white plays Qc1 it is against f5 and then he plays a3 Na4 b3 c3 Nb2 and when I chekched it with engine it was 0.08 but when I started blitz games in chess.com i understood that it is very hard to play with black...  So what we must plays with Qc1 and after some moves a3 and then b4?

Suren jan can you clarify a few things please. Does he play with 0-0 or without it? 
Qc1 is against f5. Yeah Be3 will not be trapped, but we still can go f5 right? 
Can you create a short PGN file and send us here, so I can give you a more detailed answer?

Cool, I am waiting, because it seems that f5 still will be very dangerous.

Hey Suren! 
Why after a3 you don't play Qe7? If Rb1 you can already go f5.

There after Qe7 white will play Nh2 and after 0-0 f4

Suren, after a3 Qe7 Nh2, you have an interesting resource f5! 
The difference is that after ef gf, f4 you have e4 !

Against 0-0, it seems Carlsen's Qc7 with e5 Nh5 is strong!
