Most of you reading this know who Dan John is and know that he is not one of those hairdressers with two first names. (Unless that is a closely guarded secret not being shared with the fitness community). Much has been written about Dan, so I am not going to add in much more than my .02 worth except to say if you have not read his stuff, you should.
His site is loaded with great articles and he has a newsletter called “Get Up” which should keep you busy reading for some time. I am just finishing reading his book “From the Ground Up“, which can be downloaded free as a pdf file. Seriously, if you train with barbells and haven’t read it, you need to go there now and get a copy. Read it and then go back and re-read it.It is that good, IMO.
For current Dan John stuff, go to T-Nation.
As Dan would advise, pick it up, put it over your head or carry it or throw it. Remember, the body is one piece.
