LOVE Dan John.

"Lift from your heels"
"Lead with your head"
"When in doubt, Front Squat"
"Get strong, then everything else is easy"
"The best anabolic is water"
"You have to put the bar over your head"
"The warmup IS the workout"

Probably the best philosophical strength writer out there. Easily my favorite. McCallum or Pavel is funnier, but John is more incisive and useful. The Sun Tzu of modern lifting theory.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
