Inside with Gray Cook: Episode 8 - Dan John

Written by Melissa Laughlin Video

Dan John instructs to lift heavy weights overhead, off the floor, and for distance and time. Joe Heiler questions Gray if this could also classify as self limiting exercise. Gray explains that lifting weights overhead can potentially give you more knowledge on and exposure to asymmetries than pushing and pulling patterns alone. When using these techniques, Gray encourages a sound base before loading the pattern.
