Dan John Book Lecture – Which Dan John Book Should I Get – Dan John Intervention & Can You Go
Spend half an hour with Dan John, and let him explain his programming ideas — the basics of his programming and where the ideas come from. In this free talk, Dan will clarify a few things you’ve been wondering about as he discusses the differences and similarities found in his two books Intervention and Can You Go.
“I have some rules about training people. They’re scattered throughout Can You Go? and Intervention and everything else I ever wrote. But let’s put them all down right now. For hypertrophy work—that’s bodybuilding—I think you need to do 20 to 30 total reps.
“I’m amazed constantly when people think I’m telling them to do sets of 20 to 30—no, that’s three sets of eight or three sets of 10 or five sets of five. But really, only three of the movements. In the push, the pull, and the squat, I think you should do 20 to 30 total reps and keep the load reasonable to get all reps in.” ~Dan John
A prolific writer, Dan is also a life-long competitive athlete, a well-known speaker and a former high school teacher. You’ll enjoy his regular blog writing on his site at danjohn.net and can pepper him with questions in his Q&A section in the IronOnline forum at davedraper.com.

Oh man, I love this. It’s a perfect very brief synopsis. I love Intervention and Can You Go, but sometimes I didn’t know what I really should do, just wanted to do it all (except I’m lazy, so that wasn’t happening). This distils it all.
