  • Planning and Programming Strength Training Using DUP Approach

    By Mladen Jovanovic on 10/09/2016

    This approach helps me solve some of the planning/programming conundrums and provides pretty simple framework that could be applied to other domains as well (e.g. HIT conditioning). I also touch on Dan John’s Bus Bench vs. Park Bench analogy, which I think is a game changer concept.
