I have tons of respect for Dan John and even though I’ve never met him in person, I’ve learned so much from implementing concepts from his books. There are two main things from him that I include in my sessions from time to time.
One is doing loaded carries like Farmer Walks, Suitcase Walks, and sandbag hug walks and the other thing is adding in complexes. Over the years I keep coming back to one complex in particular that he recommends and I do it with the sandbag. All the details after the vid.
