Dan John-Usable Strength-#321-Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes All-American discus thrower, Strength Coach, Olympic Lifter, Writer, Speaker and Highland Games Competitor Dan John to the Broadcast. Eric and Dan get right into the exercises that have the most bang for the buck especially for the young man or woman who want to enter into the sport of weightlifting. Dan believes to be successful in this sport the following exercise protocol must be followed. In your training you should always do the olympic lifts, a push, a pull, a loaded carry and a hinge squat. Eric and Dan talk about carrying sand bags and big stones for distance and the strength you will derive from this type of training. Dan refers to this as Anaconda strength. Eric and Dan talk about the value of strongman training and how it became all or nothing for so many training programs which because of this he feels strongman is headed into the opposite direction. Dan emphasizes repeatedly for the younger athlete who really wants to build that usable strength the best exercises to practice are the goblet squat, kettle bell swing, dead lift off boxes, and the Romanian Dead lift. We talk about where we are mentally with the athletes of today verses the athlete from yesteryear. The biggest difference Dan see’s is today’s parental involvement. Dan gives a great example of a parent who wanted his son to be the greatest discus thrower ever. He went on line and printed off all of this material by a writer on this subject named Dan John. Little did the parent know that the man coaching his son was non other then the writer of the article he was holding named Dan John. Dan has some great stories and a lifetime of examples of training he’s been part of. Dan is the personification of excellence and it’s my pleasure to introduce a gentleman of such superior qualities to my Motivation and Muscle Family. The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain To You Brawn. Enjoy!
