You’re an idiot. Plain and simple. Your arguments are so logically flawed and have so many factual inaccuracies it isn’t worth the time educating your ignorant ass.
Outside of Charlie, neither Pfaff nor John Smith had just ‘a few’ athletes succeed at the absolute highest level. Each of them has had many dozens of athletes perform at the highest levels. Pfaff transformed multiple collegiate programs in under 12 months. John Smith coached great athletes throughout the 80s, at UCLA, and continues to take athletes to the highest levels who were not even close to that before.
Seriously stop talking so far out of your ass.
They’ve all produced and improved large numbers of high level athletes and I’ve said nothing to the contrary. I’ve repeatedly stated both here and elsewhere that Dan’s methods are Dan’s methods and the issue is how they are mimicked or “applied” by others, his personal results speak for themselves.
I’ve suggested nothing of what you imply. The reason these guys are as high profile as they are is because they coach a few world record breakers, don’t tell me there is the great interest there is in Charlie’s ideas because he did a great job with the Optimists in Toronto or Dan’s because of his work at LSU or Florida or Texas Smith because of UCLA, that’s bullshit and we both know it.
Why the surge in interest in Steven Francis’ program of late? What about Lance Braumann? Was everyone equally as interested before he worked with Tyson Gay? Wake up and get real.
The “theories” get decided after the event (Henk Kraaijenhof has said this I believe just so you can be sure that’s a “credible” statement), very easy for Charlie to say weights is all general 20+ years on but what was it like at the time he was really getting it done? Very easy for Dan to say no tempo when he is doing tempo anyway and its 2008 with Bailey, Surin, Thompson, Streete-Thompson, Asahara etc (yes Pfaff has coached a lot of great athletes!) long gone and his focus shifted somewhat in terms of events, what was it like late 90’s or at LSU/Florida/Texas etc and with sprinters?
Did Pfaff not work in the same college and has closely associated with Seagrave, Schexnayder, Tellez? Is that one of my “factual inaccuracies”?
Seriously, if there is something factually inaccurate I’m very open to hearing it but I’ve hardly said much specific so would be interested to hear…
Do you disagree that heart rate response will not be a valid guide for peripheral mitochondrial adaptation (perhaps you should get down your nearest triathlon club if so)?
Or that the U-Turn work for 6-8*200m off 1-2min is not tempo?
Or that the data does not represent a correlation for OHB?
Easy to say “You’re an idiot. Plain and simple. Your arguments are so logically flawed and have so many factual inaccuracies it isn’t worth the time educating your ignorant ass.” but not really my style so I’ll leave that as it is.
Still interested to know if you’ll be following the Jamaican way this season or if you were cranking the alternate means a few years ago, it seems for many it is biography not biology for designing training programs.
