Publisher's Summary

Imagine this (go ahead, it's an easy one): You're bored with your workouts. Nothing's changing; you're not getting stronger or leaner or feeling better, and, heck, maybe you'll just take a layoff and see what happens.

You know what happens. That two-week layoff lasts a year, that's what happens!

Now consider this: Traffic was light and you're 15 minutes early for your dental cleaning appointment. You flip open your device and bring up your new copy of Before We Go. By the time the dental tech calls you, you've heard two chapters and are amped to get to the gym. Your mind is racing through the appointment, and it's all you can do to stay in that squeaky lounge chair.

You get to the gym an hour later and sail through the best workout you've had in months, maybe years. That's what this book can do for you.

Dan John's Before We Go will spur your training to that exciting level you love.

Following the pattern set by his earlier book Never Let Go, Before We Go is the second compilation of Dan's best articles previously published online.

Plain to see

I was optimistic about purchasing this book. I did not know the exact reasons I would need or have any reason to consider the information within. I heard his name passed through a lot of the exercise community that I listen to and some of the my go to podcasts. If I have anything to say about this book I love it. I believe that I needed this book back when I was embarking on my weight training endeavors. I found a lot of knowledge and wisdom that’s simple and obvious. The obvious is if it is hard or difficult you will not see it being done by other people. I love the approach he uses to make a point. It’s usually never the obvious thing that needs to be done to improve but it may be the least obvious that needs to be considered doing. I will embark on his principles of life and exercise to make it a better part of my life. I will embark on the “Velocity “ diet. So a follow up to this review will follow in 28 days. Thank you Audible and coach for wisdom.
