    Re: World Speed Summit 3

    The only reason the adjuncts had/have say in those cases is because that's one solution to the mistake of lack of general knowledge on behalf of the coach in the first place. Thus, since the coaches...

    Re: World Speed Summit 3

    In actuality, quite the opposite is true, in order for the sport coach to be objectively competent , which, according to my definition, very few are, he/she must be competent in all realms of...

    Re: World Speed Summit 3

    I appreciate the kind sentiment RB34, however, I left that profession in 2013 (ten years too late) and have since spoken and written about the need for it's elimination if sport coaching is to evolve.

    Re: Coaches with Charlie Francis Philosophy

    Agreed on the first count, regarding the second, wiser not to work with athletes who seek bedazzlement in the first place; in favor of ones who are solely focused on results.

    Re: Coaches with Charlie Francis Philosophy

    Stilljd, you are making quite a few assumptions.

    In regards to CF philosophy vs knowledge of, remember that philosophy is the study of knowledge or experience and, thus, relative to vast amount of...

    Re: Yohan Blake

    Indeed, as I've written and lectured about extensively, all of the running that so many athletes do whose sport demands either minimal accelerations or no sprinting/running at all, are simply...

    Re: Where to Start

    Bobby J, I also recommend that you acquire the breadth of Charlie's materials and take your time to understand and assimilate what you learn. I discovered Charlie's work sometime in 2002 and began...

    Re: Yohan Blake

    Funny, going back to when I first joined this website in 2003, both here and on other sites, I received so much criticism for downplaying any significance of the Olympic lifts for any sport other...

    Yohan Blake

    This 2016 video is a bit polarizing in that it illustrates objectively suspect methods and compromised mechanics while also showcasing Blake's exceptional elastic, explosive, and force output...
  15. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    I'd encourage you to be optimistic rainy.here because it's already happened, just not to the extent of what is knowable.

    You'll remember this example of what I'm referring to:

  16. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    Not by a long shot Brett. Though your question raises valid implications on the potential off-shoots of my comments on horse racing; such as more abominations like factory farming. For this reason,...
  17. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    Speaking of a completely unrelated subject...

    Angela, there is way too much to objectively criticize regarding horse racing, both on moral/ethical grounds as well professional regarding the...
  18. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    As it regards sprinting, all that need be known genetically is discoverable and merely requires a broad enough diagnosis of the morphobiomechanical commonalities shared between the world's elite...
  19. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    Ironically, experience is incredibly over rated as it is not the conduit for the creation of new knowledge (not just scientific knowledge, but any new kind of knowledge). I've spoken and written...
  20. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    In truth, it needn't be one or the other. Charlie was a unicorn in so far as his keen sense, intuition, intelligence, dedication, and so on, which afforded him the "software" that subverted the need...
  21. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    Indeed, any coach who summarily dismisses an athlete solely on the basis of anthropemetric/morphobiomechanical evaluation (barring something extreme such as an obese 130kg person who seeks gold in...
  22. Re: Short achilles tendons for faster sprinting

    I do not agree with your summary Neospeed. What is stated in the study is that the "trained" sprinters in the study had shorter achilles then the non-sprinter control group (and the length...

    It's a shame that WADA functions so dissimilarly from the US legal system that, while rife with dysfunctions of its own, at least distinguishes the punishment for different crimes based upon the...

    As has been elucidated thus far by you and others, there are a defined set of particulars specific to each athlete (what one tolerates well the other does not and vice versa). Therefore, the only...
