    So, your beef is that he believes that when training someone who is not competing in weightlifting, eliminating the pull from the floor makes sense?

    As I interpret his comments, it is not that a...

    Well, I bet a whole bunch of Orthopedic surgeons and Physical Therapists with Lexus and Mercedes payments would not be fond of Boyle suggesting that Crossfit not have adults snatch, clean and jerk...

    I don't use instatweeter or any of that stuff, so I haven't seen the videos. I would agree with you however, that just as I have said here that people shouldn't be criticizing him for his thoughts,...

    I can't speak directly to these "swinging cheat curls" as I have never seen him discuss those. I have seen video of him teaching power cleans from the high hang and hang and referencing Glenn...

    So your point is that it would be good coaching to program and then spend all of the time necessary to teach and train the classic lifts simply as an accountability check for the flexibility part of...

    Couple of things: 1) keep in mind that I am discussing Boyles thoughts on athletes using two lifts as part of their S&C program or general public adults who are using the lifts as part of their "less...

    Yes, but your post does not fit into the discussion of training say Hockey players (Boyle's specialty), or higher level athletes in general, or just the average adult population looking to be a bit...

    Lets be clear about something. I (and Boyle for that matter, which is the topic of this thread) are not saying weight training. I have specifically used weightlifting as the proper name for the...

    Starting with your last paragraph, I don't think Boyle (or any other S&C coach for that matter) would advocate for depth jumps or other plyos to be used by a population group they don't feel should...

    I find it interesting that one of the main thought process being shown in this thread (if the athletes would just weightlift then they would be even BETTER at their sports) is the exact same thought...

    The business side of sports, particularly "open enrollment" somewhat individual ones (like weightlifting) will never allow the focus to be solely on performance.

    First question is WHY? You seem like either a very young person with little life experience (based on your 10 posts here, some of the attitudes you have displayed etc) or a masterful troll. So WHY...

    Yes, but he commented on a fan forum. Again, just my opinion, but comments made by the CEO of an organization about one of its members should only be made in an official capacity (so, some type of...

    I understand that, and granted I am not really a member of the sport of weightlifting community. Personally though, this just struck me as odd as this thread (and the links included) seem to be just...

    Fair enough point.

    I guess my point is act small stay small. However, I think a very strong argument could be made that you won't ever get to the point where it seems awkward to address such...

    A personal training business has no overhead, very little expenses (other than time) and maybe some equipment.
    I would suggest that you spend more time researching running a small business in...

    Also, keep in mind that your "nice booty" as you put it and the inches you lost were probably more adipose tissue than muscle mass. As FFF mentions, abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. You...

    All kidding aside, do you know anything about running a business. I ask that because your questions here seem to come from the perspective of training only, which if...

    I think what you get there is simply a ranking of which Coach's have been coach of record for most :
    national event champions
    international team members
    International medalists.

    There very well may be , BUT I maintain someone deciding at 19 not to pursue a "career" in weightlifting still doesn't sound immature to me.

    I am not quite sure I would say looking down the barrel of no housing, no funding, no coaching, no gym and saying..."Screw this, not going to waste the foundation of my adult years on weightlifting"...
