  1. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Ange,

    This site has been a great source of information and discussion for so many.

    The only school I know of that has some of what you mention is ETSU. There is a requirement for even their...
  2. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Yes, when people are not getting the results they feel they should or just trying to attain some level of improvement they seem to feel the answer has to be contained within some type of innovation...
  3. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    He blew off Ben's weights background/performances in the podcast describing him being an anomaly. I guess he missed the results of Desai Williams, Angella Taylor-Issajenko and others as they were...
  4. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    It seems like he's exaggerating just to support his opinion-that in his mind a heavy squat has little transfer to spring performance. If that's all someone did I would agree it would lessen the...
  5. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Additionally, SM said with DeGrasse he could not back squat 60kg?! IMO it's no wonder his acceleration was poor. That deficiency is down to coaching. No, he was never going to approach huge numbers...
  6. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    No, unless I missed it I heard nothing about foot strike nor daily training times. I guess I listened to it for the same reason people used to watch MNF-to have Howard Cosell piss them off but really...
  7. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    ...and now from the most recent podcast installment McMillan states (Pacey podcast) the most common reason so many strength coaches believe so much in the use of the squat(heavy) to develop speed is...
  8. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    I believe the poor ratio of coach to athlete is an issue there-as you say too crowded. About 4-5 years ago a high level athlete I know stopped by to tour the facilities and that ratio was a major...
  9. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    True and there are a lot of elite athletes over the years who could not make that transition to elite coach and clearly Charlie did not rely (as athletes sometimes do) totally upon what they did as...
  10. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Another difference from Charlie and some others is that he was with his athletes for the most part from day 1. Some can theorize about the long term development and what to do with athletes in year...
  11. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Not sure why they do that (not allowing athletes to chase marks) other than to solidify the preparations for anyone who is going to know exactly how to plan their training and meets going forward. Of...
  12. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Yeah I think our WC pre championships qualifying period was up around July 21st and of course someone could get the mark at the meet but no one, that I am aware of, is permitted to chase marks post...
  13. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Not 100% sure but since none of the others has qualifiers I think Rowe moves up to the third qualifier due to his time earlier in the the year. Bednarek would go (if healthy enough to do so) as you...
  14. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Another point made on that podcast is how difficult it is supposedly to continue to improve after college from a Tony Wells type of system ("system based program?!" very high intensity, intensive...
  15. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Yes, utilize CF's training for example (or Pfaff's who I have great respect for), instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. I understand the need to frequently make small adjustments to training, to...
  16. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Brooks Johnson.
  17. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    I think most of Pfaff's tweets have been political for some time.
  18. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    To someone's credit in the Altis short sprints program (the primary author is Dan Pfaff) they do point out that Charlie was among the earliest people in the "resurgence" of separating training into...
  19. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    For sure-he should have done it before. Also without the WC standard the third place at nationals carries less significance so while good for him for finishing 3rd at nationals, it's too bad a guy...
  20. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    True and maybe Bulletproof Coffee is not the be all/ end all of sports nutrition?!
  21. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Completely riding the coattails of Pfaff.
  22. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    ...and 9.94 in 2016. I’m trying to figure out why he has a reputation as a great coach when all I see is him being handed a number of big talents he might(?) get improvements for initially but then...
  23. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Yeah, he competed well-I did mean maybe he did not make the team and not that he did not deserve credit. So now the third spot goes to Rowe and as noted elsewhere if Lyles wins the DL Bednarek if...
  24. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Credit to Webb for making the team -edit-though maybe he did not since he does not have the WC qualifying mark.
  25. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    I forgot about Mitchell - probably because of his regression. I assume he’s retired now after being “Stu-ed”.
