I’ve use many different circuits and weight routine to balance his body…when I started to coach him he had lots of postural imbalances, lack of mobility and hams injuries history..
with just squat cleans anc bench to death every 4 days, we wouldn’t have solved anything.
I second what Ero is saying. Power has no application if it can’t be applied in the right manner.
I have had athletes who have had horrible posture due to massive quads and small/weak hamstrings. We did a lot of hypertrophy via RDL’s, Glute-hams, deep squats in order to balance out the body. As the hamstrings got both bigger and stronger, the posture began to improve.
To believe that there is only way to Rome only limits a coaches ability to help an athlete. Sure there are athletes that might thrive under David’s Program. Most women probably would not, given that it has been proven that women typically respond to higher volume and less intensity.
Each athlete might need slight tweaking and that is the art of coaching. To discount a route is to not have thought out the process behind why something else might be done. Sure there are going to be methods and strategies that are “better” than others, but it is a best-fit sport.
To me, it sounds like a pitch when you say, “It takes less time and you get can get better results than X!” To me, your selling something by taking a stance that there is only one best way. If you talk to most of the people on this board, they will have opinions as to what their particular ideas are, but are not absolute.
