Re: Client getting bigger / stronger

"But I'm not sure that's true that doing hard things is necessarily more rewarding"

Name one think where greater application of yourself does not increase the rewards. Of course this can be taken to far and you will work your self out, but that is rarely an issue.

This. I don't know that you need to take the hard path in *everything*, but I don't have much use for people who always take the easy route.

And I especially don't have much use for people who insist on the easy route...and then complain that it didn't get them where they wanted to go. Strolling along the valley might be a perfectly enjoyable route, but it's never going to take you to the summit.

Re: Client getting bigger / stronger

In the end most people are going to do what they like. You can not approve of what they do, and thats fine, but at least they aren't just sitting at home, its called specificity, everyone to some degree trains to they will look and feel good, now look good is subjective to all...so if a certain training method = unwanted results, why would someone keep training that way? that's not lazy, thats just common sense.

and I have to say thank god not every woman wants to look like a beach volleyball player, never found them attractive!

Re: Client getting bigger / stronger

Volleyball players squat, clean, snatch, train with progressive overload, do interval work, train at high intensity... Sounds a lot like what a lot of people on this web forum I spend a lot of time on. Don't hate on the volleyball players. One of my favorite sports quotes is from AVP- "Best uniform in sports"

This blanket statement is not entirely accurate, because I can tell you the womens V-ball team at my university did not do ANY squats, cleans, snatches, they did a lot of leg presses and SUPER light flat bench...and bosu ball crap.

Re: Client getting bigger / stronger

Don't know what university you want to, but I'd toss out a completly uninformed guess and say they were a terrible team. My girlfriend's high school team did squats and HIIT. I know MSU's vollyball team does squats, cleans, tire pulls, etc. I can only assume professional players train like professional athletes.

"I can only assume professional players train like professional athletes."

That is a huge assumption and generally incorrect.
