Default Goblet Squats and a Violation of my Intellectual Property

I invented them...the name comes from the Holy Grail studies that I spent my life's work on! My precious Intellectual Property!

Oh, and I'm not serious, but it is funny how things go both ways...

I would reply, Dan, but my IP has been banned from that forum.

Third post:

"This is a Dan John exercise - a wonderful way to add some weight and really solidify form."

Credit is given by Jerry (the original poster).



I do think that from now on, EVERY exercise you do (whether you come up with it or not) should be called the "Dan John xxxxxx". For example, these would be called "Dan John Goblet Squats" (C) (TM).

Then you could have "Dan John Clean and Jerk", "Dan John Farmer Walks", "Dan John Tabata Front Squats".


(I am only half kidding btw).

It's hard to talk out of the other side of your mouth when the shoe's on the other foot....or something like that.

As an aside, we did a "Carried Away" inspired workout Saturday, with due credit given to Mr. John on the blog. But I've stolen countless ideas and inspiration from Get Up! and the various forums I visit. Please accept my Tabata (tm) workout tonight as penance...

Robb, you are on to me.

For the record, from now on...I will bore all of you with the history of each and everything I do in training.

Today, we did a thing called the "Double Eagle" which at least three coaches and an athlete had a part in inventing.

That's how most of this stuff happens, you all know.

Intellectual Property...if I start reading back issues of Muscle and Fitness, does that mean I stole Joe Weider's IP? I have been afraid to go to movies because I read Entertainment Weekly and I think I have to stand up during a movie and comment that "I am here because of a favorable review in EW. It was on page 64 of the recent edition."

IP...my precious...

Dan-
I'm going to have Greg add an edition of Endnote to the software so we can document all this stuff. Nice and neat like.

I noticed that somebody mentioned Clubbells™ without giving proper attribution to Scott™ Sonnon™ or CST®. Sorry, I just couldn't resist.
