Can You Go

I hope you enjoyed Can you Go? To help you along, I created a YouTube Channel. As you open it, you will find a short introduction. Most of the movements noted in the book are in these videos and, if I miss one or something isn’t clear, I will continue to improve them.

If you bumped into this page and haven’t yet seen the book, here’s where to read the details and order if if you’d like: If you bumped into this page before reading the book and would like to see it, here’s the link again: “Can you Go?”

Can You Go?

For Intervention, I added a long series of blog posts supporting the materials in the book.. There were not a lot of people reading these posts, although I did enjoy writing them. The YouTube videos might be more popular as they link to Dan John Strength Coach, my FaceBook page.

And, if I wasn’t clear enough on the Maffetone HR formula, read the master here.

The Basic Weekly Training Template: Basic Training for the Seasoned Trainee

Here’s an example of the three principles of Movement first, “If it’s important do it every day” and Repeat, repeat, repeat in action. Here we’re looking for a focused hinge and squat day on Monday, and a pull-centric day on Tuesday, which are countered by a heavy pressing day on Thursday and, as we gear up for the weekend, loaded carries on Friday. Yet, on each day, this workout adds a little of the other movements.

This workout involves a lot of repetitions. The load will make this workout harder, and this would be a more advanced program than Classic Conditioning in Ten Movements, as we’re asking for more variety in training.
