going for the dan john 40 day challenge. anybody ever done it?
wrecked my shoulder a couple months back, and have just been doing maintenance stuff since then. Ready to go at it.
The program in a nutshell is:
5 days per week
same 5 exercises everyday. 2 sets of 5 most days. some days of singles. a day of 5/3/2. but never more than 10 reps of each exercise.
the movements i chose are:
flat barbell bench. i haven't done it in over a year
loaded carries (type of carry can vary daily)
Not supposed to go real heavy. should never miss a rep. not even close.
looking forward to seeing if there are any results to this.
im about to get real busy, so the 20 minute commitment makes it very doable.
Whats the purpose of this program?
i don't know but the guy who writes about it says hes had some of his biggest gains on it. And there are several articles on it, so clearly there is interest in it.
I don't know if i trust it, but ive got nothing to lose and it's only 2 months. Starting in September, im working 55 to 60 hour weeks, so it's a good fit timewise, as well.
It’s a Pavel workout that was popularized by Dan. I don’t have any idea how well it works. Progressive overload is the goal and I imagine you could get the same results with a little adjustment and not need to be in the gym 40 days straight.
