OK, response from a bro in the upper end training industry (D1 college, pro football). If Pgh IS having their players lift heavy during the season, then they are not the norm.
In a nutshell, there is more focus on bar speed (explosiveness) than poundages. It's all formulated though. Using bands and chains, they go percentages. Waves vary from 50% to 70%, sometimes lower. There will be an occasional phase of heavy 1 rep maxes, but it is rare. I just forwarded you our latest newsletter that explains the primary methods. I actually wrote that part of it for XXX, so I'm ready for your critique.
Lighten up and when people don't agree with you just move on, state what you believe, stay consistent in your message if you really believe it and don't take it personal. Trust me more than a few don't agree with me but I could really care less and I don't go into attack mode whenever they attack me for having a different opinion as several frequently do. Life is too short for that nonsense.
I asked the poster when I EVER claimed to be an expert. He had no reply.Quote:
I do not purport to be an expert. You do. I find it quite comical that somebody with no apparent expertise jumps to conclusions that the Steelers must not only be doing certain types of exercises, but that those exercises must be wrong.
I have no idea what your qualifications are but I'm pretty sure that the Steelers have a professional training staff.
Only those with truly nothing to boast about use this line. Insecure much?
Focused on attacking poster instead of discussing the original point.Quote:
Funny how the guy that claims to be in on the Steelers training is the one asking why the Steelers suffer 'all these injuries- maybe it's due to training?'.
Dude- maybe it's you?
Inflammatory, for no apparent reason.Quote:
True, she could be the sanitary bin cleaner... or the overpaid janitor.
Hadn't considered those options.
What are your qualifications? Did you buy P90x? Please share. And thanks for the comic relief.
Pure ad hominem attacks, prohibited by stated board rules.Quote:

5th grade is tough y'all.
So I have a question: Why is it when others turn to ad hominem attacks, it's just over looked? But if I even respond to said attacks, I am the one stirring stuff up? I think it's safe to way there are some warped perceptions going on around here.
