Training Challenges – Bus Bench Training Program – Dan John Challenges
Personal and group training challenges are one way Dan John creates bus-bench programming for himself and his athletes or clients. In this talk, he describes the philosophy behind these challenges, and offers a few examples.
“You reach for the stars, but when you can’t keep reaching. You have to turn around and keep that base going. Challenges are the easiest way for both athletes and non-athletes to do this. Maybe you don’t want to look great in a bikini, but I strive to.” ~Dan John

Loved it! Great stuff, as always from Dan John! The Plato of the Plates (Olympic) has done it again. Lots of things to ponder and apply to your lifting and life outside of the gym.
