The Barbell Prescription.

Post by SubClaw » Tue Dec 13, 2016 6:06 am

Has anyone here bought it? Is it any good?

I was thinking about getting it for my parents this Xmas but I'm still undecided.

I see... yet another SS iteration, but focused on seniors. I was expecting something along the lines of Easy Strength, but it's an interesting twist.

Yes, they are following a full body routine (using a TB, KBs and a TRX) that I kinda created/stole/assembled from various sources (Dan John, Dan Martin, Tom Furman...).

Pretty much. You can see him on Dan John's forum.

Exactly. 92.5% x 3sets of 4? Um, no thank you.

Are those percentages or poundage? It looks like a 2.5 kg. increment.

If it's listed in KG, i fond it hard to believe it's universally applicable. I'm in the age group,s he defines and so is my mother. 92.5 kilos is nothing for me all day, for my mom it's nearing 1rm
