Charles Poliquin

I wanted to post something up about this extraordinary man.

For those who don’t know, Mr. Poliquin is a legendary strength coach based in the US. He has coached a vast array of top athletes to their best results and he writes some great, no-nonsense articles on the subject.

I wanted to share two of my current favourites:

Learning From Exercise Bloopers

The “Functional” Training Delusion

I like his approach to training – keeping it simple by using what works and treating each athlete as an individual. I think if those two principles were adopted by every strength coach/trainer, then the world would be a better place for it.
