"Even if you find the right answers, what good will it do if you were asking wrong questions? Dan John poses unexpected questions every athlete and strength coach should ask himself--and brilliantly answers them. Intervention is the perfect companion to Easy Strength." Pavel Tsatsouline, Chairman, StrongFirst "I've always said the greatest compliment to a coach is to say he gets it. Dan John really gets it...and knows how to put it on paper. Read and enjoy." ~Michael Boyle, Strengthcoach.com "I love Dan John's back-to-basics yet progressive approach, his coupling of the physical and spiritual dimensions of training, his attention to detail and his ability to help push us to find our inner limits." ~Todd Durkin

Dan John gibt in gewohnt lockerer Weise tiefe Einblicke in das Bread and Butter eines Strength and Conditioning Coaches. Er erläutert sein Modell der Fundamental Movements (Push, Pull, Hinge, Squat, Loaded Carry, everything else) und der dazugehörigen Movement Pattern. Das Buch ist durchaus ein Eyeopener und jedem motivierten Trainer und Trainierendem ans Herz zu legen.

I think that people who haven't hit that fitness wall may have a hard time appreciating and utilizing the philosophy and approach. People at the gym will ask me about training, and I let them know about this type of approach, and it doesn't really register and it's not sexy. However, after a few weeks/months, usually when they start getting bad pain or complain about the lack of progress, they will ask me again about the stuff I was telling them about.
If you're looking for the latest fitness fad or something fun to do at the gym, this isn't the book or product for you. If you're looking for a simple, safe and effective way, to get results, add it to your cart.
I have also watched the DVD version and listened to the audio recording of the DVD many times, and have had the pleasure of seeing Dan present this information.
This is not the book of recipes: that many reps and sets for for six weeks, then back off, then switch to this and so on. This is the system of fitness for different classes of people, from physical culture students to elite athletes. The most important theme is that the vast majority of trainers belong to Quadrant Three, where a few physical qualities and skills need to be learned at good (but not amazing) level.
Should I, an average Joe in his early fifties, aim for double bodyweight squat, or my goals at this stage of my life are closer to preparing not to break my hip in twenty years in case of a fall? Should I train myself to the ground every session, or should I take it easy and? What are my weaknesses and what should I do to correct them? That's what this text helps you to do: set the goals, decide on the level of commitment to training, assess yourself and so on.
Very systematic and, I believe, based on extensive experience. I highly recommend it to every, fit and strong or otherwise. Most of my contemporaries should read it. Easy and entertaining style and anecdotes are an extra bonus.
He is also a generous soul who has introduced me to Tim Ferriss, Gray Cook and Pavel Tsatsouline. This guy should be classified as a "Blue Zone".
From the opening few paragraphs, you will find yourself immediately engaged and wondering/reviewing everything you know (or thought you knew) about training. By the end, you may find yourself with a completely new perspective on training or maybe just one or two new tricks for your repertoire. In either case, you will enjoy the read!
One note; the title is 100% accurate - this is for the "athlete and trainer". In short, don't buy this book if you are looking for a beginners book on fitness, this book is intended for people who already have a healthy fitness vocabulary that are looking to break a plateau or find a fresh perspective. Coach John fully delivers as the title promises.
