Even if the Inno program is not super-excellent, it still produces a great amount of interest for many athletes. I think it’s more attractive to many new recruits to do extreme jumps, running on a trampoline, doing inventive lifts, and autoreg runs than it is doing Tellezian or Clyde Hart track workouts. I am serious. Many other sport athletes find track mega boring.
TOTALLY agree. If you’re training system and / or the coach is totally unproven the surefire plan is to:
1) proclaim your program is science based despite the fact that it not only isn’t but is likely refuted by science
2) count on the ignorance of the masses to believe point 1
3) sexy up your exercises and protocols with gimmicks, special equipment, or novel methods
4) make the program mysterious or unknown (it’s a secret German / Russian / Alien program!!!)
5) claim ridiculous results, usually in unheard of time frames (jump 40″ in only 3 weeks!)
Note that the above is not specifically about Inno or any other program…just a general observation about many in the field.
