    Let me add to the sentence above then - 'for those who may not be gifted'.

    The point I'm making with "the enjoyment" is you can listen to some dude with a piece of paper, who's given you some cookie cut cherry picking routine, it can be as fun is it wants, but if you are not getting stronger, fitter and more flexible then there will be no enjoyment.

    0ni is or was working towards a perceived ideal, he was mostly "training" not working out" there is a difference and it's another topic.

    methods of training
    methods of increase muscle tissue

    and still there will be confusion

    as I believe increased muscle facilitates the environment for increased strength and flexibility

    I think we are talking about different coaching scenarios. It has already been established that most PTs are of little use to experienced trainers. However, I believe that a good PT (of which there are only a few %) or Coach (we'll call a coach a trainer with knowledge and experience in a specific area e.g. powerlifting) has a lot to offer advanced trainees. A 'cookie cutter cherry picking' program will be of little use to someone like this.

    I talked a bit about strength standards here, taking them as a percentage of world records. Most people would do very well if they got to 50% of an (age-matched) world record in strength or cardio - it'd totally change their lives. Past that won't improve their lives much and is really only useful for its own sake, for competitions in that thing. Same could apply for bodyfat, for those weightloss trainers - getting you as a man from an obese 30% bodyfat to a normal healthy 15%, this will totally change your life; going from a normal healthy 15% to an amateur drug-tested bodybuilding level of 7-8% really is another thing entirely.

    A competent personal trainer helps someone get the first 50%, you need a coach after that. And historically a "coach" is someone who works with competitive athletes at whatever level.

    Many of you are confusing the roles, and forget that most people are at 1-10% of their possible performance. Most people are not trying to figure out how to get their 160kg squat up further - they're trying to figure out how to squat! This is why we have many many personal trainers and they can make a living from it even if they're not very good, while we have not many coaches and many of them have a day job.

    Which is where most of the confusion in this thread stems from. We all know stem is good for nothing.

    In regards to practice for a sport played, the best way to increase performance is to practice skills specifically as one intends to demonstrate those skills.

    Although, *greater function- can be oobtained through general weight training

    this is most relevant even for the sport of the powerlifter

    specificity is is a whole new topic, most of which coaches get it wrong.

    *to demonstrate proficiency, not skill
