Contact athletes, are you the hammer and stone?

Heard this concept from Dan John in his recent book “40 years with a whistle” and it beautifully summrised my training methodology

The concept is simple:

Be the hammer. Can you produce force – run, jump, hit and SMASH. It’s your ability to produce and snap.

However, your body can’t be limp when you’re producing this force. You need a strong column, from knee to neck you need to be like stone.

Utilise the training methods in this table to hit both within your training.
