It would be if it were intended to be a battle. I just enjoy discussion on this subject and any a party can bring to the discussion the better – written discussion always prove hard as context is hard to deliver in writing. People end up frustrated and it appears as personal/emotional.
I have no one strict programme, it varies gretaly on the goals at hand. Needless to say I dont employ OL or their variants unless specifically asked and in that case I always advise of alternatives methods and my reasoning behind them.
Strength work, I will find an exercise that suits the individuals frame and their goals and have them work their strength as best as possible with consideration for muscle mass distribution and strength in specific areas i.e. cyclists I have worked with tend not to need much upper body mass but enhancing their upper body strength whilst maintaining smaller musculature in that area always improves their performance due to the effects of irradiation.
Deadlifitng has not failed in any case to increase jump height, performance economy etc.
Deadlifitng, pistols and chins moved one of cyclists up an average of 6 places in one season – this was an over 50 semi pro who has been cycling for many years.
a similar exercise selection also helped a late 40’s adventurer out trek a group of 20 year old triathletes on a north pole expedition dragging a 60 kg sled for 2 weeks.
They ALL benefit from simple strengthening of major muscle groups and sports training be they explosvie or slow events.
It is not because they got good at deadlifts etc directly, it is the fact that getting good at deadlifts allows them handle more weight = higher tension across a fibre = more potential during a sport for more strength, endurance, economy through reduce work effort and irradiation etc.
