The Little Black Book of Training Wisdom


"A rare book" - Dan John, Author and Strength Training Legend

Effective training is built on a very limited number of fundamental training principles. Training wisdom is ensuring that you don't violate these rules - which is unfortunately, surprisingly easy, and human, to do. In this book Dan highlights some of the most common pitfalls so they can be avoided. The book is a must for anyone who wants to learn how to build dominant athletic prowess by working smarter not harder.



SUBVERT! A Philosophical Guide for the 21st Century Scientist

Science has lost its way. Multi-national corporations profit from publicly funded research by restricting access to scientific publications. There is an epidemic of mental health problems among trainee scientists. Post-truth politics has destroyed public trust in science and scientists.

Drawing on ideas ranging from those of 19th century anarchists like Bakunin and Kropotkin, to philosophers of science like Popper and Feyerabend, Dan illustrates the importance of philosophy for the modern scientist.


FORCE: The Biomechanics of Training

This is a biomechanics book with a difference. In it, Dan shows why an understanding of force is a critical factor in planning effective training programmes. Along the way, he debunks many myths that are prevalent in the strength and conditioning community. Written in digestible short chapters and assuming no prior biomechanical knowledge, 'Force' is essential reading for all coaches and athletes.
