Well it's Sunday morning and anyone that knows me knows I'm sitting in a coffee shop enjoying a cup or three of coffee (so I don't bother Sally) and cruising some training websites and catching up on some reading. Then of course, I'm drawn to the ultimate time waster that is Facebook so I can catch up with my friends all over the world only to be bombarded with posts from all of the awesome fitness experts out there. (I swear that many of them are still frustrated they were cut from the 6th grade jump rope team). Anyways, it always mystifies me just how many of them are forever changing their training philosophy and I wonder why? Did you take any time to develop and research your philosophy or are you just 'parroting' whatever happens to be the craze at the moment!! One of my favorites....a total 180 degree change in philosophy....a couple of years ago 'parroting' Joe DeFranco that the Olympic Weightlifting movements were not necessary for improved performance in sports and now after a weekend course you're not only a weightlifting coach but you can coach/teach/program like world class coach. Highly doubtful there princess!!! Hell I've worked around top level coaches who seem to change their training philosophy as oten as I change underwear!!! One training camp their doing Olympic Lifts, the next training camp it's like Louie Simmons disigned the training program only to see it change 2 years later to strongman training along with some training circuits with weird ass names attached to them!! What the hell is going on?
