I don’t know about anyone else, but I found today’s (3/16) cool tip from Dan John to be spot on. It amazes me how easy it is for all of us (well, me at least) to get caught up in the exotic details of designing a program when really it is the core basic movements that matter the most. I just find this kind of thing so refreshing and was curious to see if others did as well. Personally, the more Dan John articles we get on T-nation, the better.

Work Hard, Simply
What most people need to do is squat, press, deadlift, clean, snatch, jerk, dip and chin. It’s amazing how much harder simple workouts can be. Keep workouts pretty simple, pretty short, and pretty damn hard. Toss it all out: periodization, tempo, weird variations of lifts, new machines, the whole bit until you master the simple stuff![/quote]
