This book isn't a straightforward narrative but brief chapters on different observations throughout his training life, regarding nutrition, fads, training programs and exercises. A great read for the experienced lifter looking for a fresh perspective.
If you want training ideas and new programs, this book is a bible and a "must have" in your fitness library.
There is outstanding information, based on his experiences and programs that you can benefit from. You will get a ton out of reading this book, if you are into training at all.
It's really a collection of great articles covering various topics, even some radical fat loss ideas (the velocity diet, for example) Love how the chapters are short, but have high impact. A wealth of information and a very enjoyable read.
I dad no idea this book would as great as it was, but definitely one of my favorite health and fitness books I've ever read. I recommend it to people all the time for training ideas and training wisdom from a true legend.
If you don't know who Coach Dan John is, this is the book you must have. And, if you do know who he is and don't have it, buy it immediately!
A true fitness classic!
I know this may be a bit dramatic, but to me this read is for more advanced lifters, those not obsessed with the mirror and the short term results, rather those lifers that have lifted for the longest time, not having the greatest physiques necessarily, but a passion to lift heavy things and get back to basics while the rest of the world is busy looking for the next big thing.
Dan reminds us that we are not alone. But part of a community of cavemen driven to cold steel, calluses and pushing ourselves, sometimes alone in a messy garage while others just don't get what the lure is.
That said, if you are lost or need some ways to break out of a slump, stall or just plain funk...this is your read.
No bro' science here. Go gets it man!
