Derek Hansen is an expert when it comes to getting people fast. I have been wanting to get Derek on the podcast for a while sp I was really pleased when he agreed to come on for a chat. This episode centres around the premise of microdosing and not in a drug sense. Microdosing is exactly that, dissecting longer sessions into a number of smaller sessions which are spread throughout the week. Derek has written at length on this topic with some of his writing available at the following site; strengthspeedpower.com, simplifaster.com & via his Performance Video Essays Enjoy!
