    Kettlebell ABC + pressing volume and pull-ups

    I remember Dan saying that for ABC a good start would be alternating 2x and 1x per week with another program alternating the opposite (I hope that makes sense).

    Other/Mixed Less Can Be More (Strength & Hypertrophy)

    Bodyweight Dan John on Pull Ups

    As with most anything Dan John I thought this: Pull Ups was an outstanding read. I'm more of a rep with bodyweight rather than add weight to my pull ups guy. However, the line on "if all you did was pull ups and swings or goblet squats you would be doing pretty well" had me nodding. Imagine...
