Lyle McDonald? (if I’m to assume that’s who you are?)-
After looking at your anonymous whodoescarltrain site and your first 3 posts on elitetrack, I’d say you are more guilty of the very things you accuse Carl of than he is.
If you want to stick around please contribute something of value to the community.
For what it’s worth I (and many others on the site) enjoy Carl’s writing style and the fact that he confronts people and issues that many others can not or will not. The best and most thought-provoking writing is often not what we agree with but the things we disagree with and makes us evaluate.
The Lyle McDonald of “Body Recomposition” fame??? I for one disagree with everything on the principle we are always wrong all the time and of course I am wrong about this which makes it right.
I highly doubt Mr. Mickey D’s will stick around on the forum long enough to have his views bashed by anyone as that will not sell his books. As an example I would suggest taking route of a certain Dr. Yessis of totally avoiding answering any questions directly and asking the same questions over and over in response to those questions while trying to sell your books and your new fabulous website of whodoescarltrain. On the Supertraining Group Forum on Yahoo, Dr. Yessis is at least still posting and promoting his explosive running book at every chance by belittling a commonly attacked group on this site, Barry Ross’s BearPowered following. As much as I disagree with Barry and Ken Jakalski on certain items their minimalist program has certain merits and can be applied to larger groups than most traditional coaching methods regarding speed development. Dr. Yessis is still trying get picture perfect form/angles using isolation drills. In fact, Dr. Yessis still advocates a specific set of drills in sequence to setup proper sequencing, which flies in the face of how motor control is developed through motor learning. As the saying goes any kind of publicity is good publicity and I am certain to be wrong about all this.
BTW Mr. McDonald, I totally recomposed my body with fat by sitting/lying/sleeping on the couch for the past 18 months of my life. I should right a book on how I gained 30 pounds watching a child run around like an animal escaped from the zoo and I have never felt happier in my life.
