Yeah. You can pretty much take the functional training out of it and just realize that there has been a trend to apply protocols from the world of rehab across the board to all sorts of athletic training. The ideas being if it's good to rehab an inury it must be good in general. Anyone who thinks that doesn't know thing one about thing one.

I mean I've even heard of football players getting "unstable surface training". Now that is great to return an injured ankle to function but football players play on STABLE GROUND. What gives. Are they training to play in earthquakes? You even see articles telling you to SQUAT on those half balls! Let alone curl 15 pounds. Absolutely ridiculous. Training is specific. Like you say, you do the thing and you get good at the thing. The further away you get from the thing the less carry over to the thing.

With the personal trainer industry I think there is a tendency to want to look cutting edge and like your are using "advanced" techniques. Clue....if you are a beginner, or to a large extent any level, if a trainer has you doing plyometrics the first day they train you....find a new trainer.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I couldnt agree more, the sad part is trainers will get away with this crap, because your average client isnt an elite level athleate, nor are they educated on the subject matter. If they were they wouldnt need a trainer. Not only that, but most people will do these movements without even thinking about it, then will hit the cardio like they are told. The newbie effect will take place, and they will rave about this trainer to friends ... and the cycle continues.

Sometimes I just want to shake people, and tell them to wake up. Dont you have the internet? Dont you have some kind of research skills? Wouldnt you rather investigate for yourself, then just take some guys word for it at your gym?

P.S. ^^ this is borderline hate thread material right here hahaha.

It's a legitimate problem. It propagates misinformation and it can be harmful, you know. I think it's def something to be hatin on if we must hate
