I just finished reading today’s article from Nate Green, and found a lot of the information to make a great deal of sense. I wouldn’t say the ideas are foreign, but the disconnect between how people tend to do things and how they should/want to do things but are too confused about is bridged here. It’s certainly an enlightening way to approach one’s training. So, first, thank you both (Green and Thibaudeau) for this article.
Now, the question:
Christian, I can’t help but notice the trend that you, as a wealth of experience and information, love to give away your two cents without charge. I am under the impression it’s not too big of a deal to your personal income as I’m sure working with you personally is a completely different experience. I’m also sure your reputation is pretty well-spread as I remember reading something about you training an actor whose name I forget. Regardless, I’ve seen a lot of trainers, good and bad, lean more toward the ‘hush-hush’ side of the spectrum unless compensation is involved. My question to you is simple. Why do you release your opinions, knowledge, and techniques so openly?
This is simply out of curiosity. Also, if you have any commentary on why other trainers may be so quiet about training without monetary persuasion, I’d love to hear that also.
Anyway, as a bloodthirsty lifter trying to additionally enter the fitness industry, I greatly appreciate the time you take to share your experience so that we may utilize it in achieving our own goals.
