Hard work without a direction is useless.

That’s what a good coach is for. The lifter provides the hard work and the coach provides the direction. Usually a winning combo.

I think the US is getting some good ‘direction’ w/Zygmunt Smalcerz now!

This is just for people who were intrested, for their own training, for coaches. Not for people to argue about america, which is what everyone seems to bring most threads to.

I know i was just hoping they could restrain themselves lol. If they wanted to argue about the chinese then that would have been fine but just to randomly bring up america.

Perhaps my comprehension is lacking, but I fail to see how my one comment building on your comment, ‘hard work w/out direction is useless’ is ‘arguing’. Likewise, the example I chose to provide comes from a club member’s experience w/Coach Smalcerz (he placed 7th @ Jr. World’s this year).
To clarify, the example was how the pairing of a good coach provides good ‘direction’ to an athlete who works ‘hard’ and I gave an example that I’m familiar with (apologies is my example being American makes it ‘US centric’).

For the record, I have read Kirk’s (Kirksman) materials and followed the threads discussing it on various weightlifting forums.

I only meant it’s US centric to the person who mentioned why we get a US comment. Not entirely sure why we had a US comment either.

To be fair if the US started caring about strength then it wouldn’t have to keep coming up!

Jokes…

lol

It’s kind of funny actually I think there are few Americans that post in the Oly forum regularly. I think most of us are from Canada or the UK.

Canada is teh awesome. Canadian women qualified three weightlifting slots for London already. Boo-yah. No idea how “Chinese” their training system is though.

i thought we all pretty much sucked. western countries at weightlifting, i mean.
