Are there any secrets? Training concepts that athletes and coaches protect so that the competition won’t get a hold of it?
I ask this because my coach gave me a new workout concept and told me not to include it in my online training log. He said his own coach gave it to him years ago and requested that he tell as few people as possible, so that other lifters do find out about it.
“Don’t put it in your training log, and don’t make any youtube videos. We don’t want word of this getting out.”
Is it common for a circle of lifters to be protective of their methods? Has anyone run into this?
