Is Your Strength Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?
40 Workouts - 8 Weeks... It’s so easy you won’t do it! Disclaimer: I did not invent this. I plucked this gem out of a book called Easy Strength written by Dan John and Pavel Tsatsouline. I know, they sound like strong dudes, so I trusted them.
The summer season was coming to a close, the leaves were turning, and old man winter was closing in. I thought to myself, “time to get strong.” For the last year or so I’ve always wanted to try this plan, but always had a lame excuse. “It’s too long.” “I want to climb more.” “This will hurt my conditioning.” All valid: I did climb less, it was long, and my conditioning did suffer. But guess what, I got a heck of a lot stronger and strength is the foundation for anything we do. I was still able to climb and ski a bit, but this workout was the focus. Remember, make the goal the goal... and strength was my goal.
