there is a sayin that goes “those who “CAN” can’t teach”. i have found this 2 be very true. with most “champiions” their instincts, genetics, and determination is all they need and therefore can not take it 2 the surface and teach. for example; i was considered a prodigy in art, and have had exceptional skillz since i was very young, yet nearly 30 years later i still cant really teach art, at all. whatsoever. ive had art teachers that were not nearly as skilled as I, but could teach art 1000 times better.
that being said i think the teacher needs extensive knowledge, applied knowledge(experience),and a passion for the target subject they teach (in this case bodybuilding)
I dont want no 1 to miss my point, i dont think that guys who r enormous are unknowledgable, i just beleive that one persons capable mind and appearance r not THAT correlated, at the same time i wouldnt trust some1 “educated” without a strong background of experience.
I agree with you here… To stay with the art analogy, someone who is a “Prodigy” in it does not have to work as hard as someone who isn’t. So if a person is not naturally adapt at painting, but loves it and puts in the hours upon hours to learn it chances are they will be able to teach it better than the person who takes to art naturally and is just naturally great at it. I believe this goes with any thing for the most part. [/quote]
