    Good point! I've also found that starting off new athletes with hex bar deadlifts enable them to learn how to get the back into the proper alignment (as the hands are at the sides, rather than in...

    First, many excellent weightlifting coaches work out of Crossfit gyms.

    I've seen many comments on Boyle's social media platforms this year in which he is promoting the same ideas he promoted in...

    I saw a video of Boyle promoting the single-leg deadlift over the conventional deadlift. Anyway, Boyle has established himself as (at least) a limited purpose public figure, and should expect public...

    I never said this quote, "Professional S&C coaches should all program back squats and Olympic lifts regardless of their population and circumstances because it will make all of their athletes...

    A short leg is rare -- often a rotation of the spine can give the illusion of a short leg. As for your foot arches, the technical name for fallen arches is valgus, and the degree the arches fall is...

    Boyle has posted many videos of his athletes doing these swinging hang cleans. I saw one video where he referenced Glenn Pendlay, but when you see Boyle's athletes lift, they usually start flat...

    Have you considered that your flexibility issues could have been caused by valgus feet?

    Boyle and other functional trainers promote the idea that weightlifting movements, even a power clean from the floor, are too complex to teach. And of course, since he had back problems from lifting...

    It's been shown with track athletes that weight training can significantly reduce overuse injuries and total injuries, and this is especially true with young athletes who focus on just one sport....

    First, talent prevails. For sprinters, those with long tendons tend to excel. Perhaps he is fast despite his mobility problems and posture, and would run even faster if these areas were improved upon...

    Boyle's focus is on training athletes. He doesn't believe in full squats, but will have his athletes do heels elevated goblet squats with a kettlebell -- not much overload there.

    Absolutely! Rather than trying to justify a position that squats are bad for the back and that weightlifting is too difficult to teach, he could focus instead on other aspects of conditioning, and...

    Thanks robo -- the sad thing is that it's hard for the public to determine who is giving out good advice.

    So he identifies a problem such as not being able to fully extend the arms overhead or squat low because of ankle flexibility, and the solution is to avoid addressing these flexibility problems by...
  16. Adults should not do weightlifting, says Functional Training Guru Michael Boyle

    Michael Boyle, a functional fitness (whatever that is) guru, has not been doing the weightlifting community any favors. He says he is a fan of "Olympic lifting," but that athletes should only do them...

    Thanks for the response. The challenge I have with the Arnold and other major meets is trying to determine what day my athletes will lift. If an athlete lifts on Saturday morning, we could fly out on...

    Thanks for responding, Phil! One possible solution is to set a strict number of participants for each class, such as 12, and going on a first-come, first-serve basis. If an athlete tries to sign up...
