The Dan John Guide to a Career in Lifting


I’m joined by Dan John on today’s episode of Muscle Breaking Podcast.

Dan is an athlete, trainer, teacher and writer. He has been lifting weights and discus throwing for about 50 years and is still going strong in his 60s.

He is also the author of one of my favorite books – Never Let Go: A Philosophy of Lifting, Living and Learning.

I choose Dan’s Brain to help you make smart decisions about your own training, even if you are a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran.

We cover the most important assessments you can do yourself to determine which areas need work.

It also describes how you should train in the three main classes of your lifting career:


  1. 16-35
  2. 35-55
  3. 55+
