Mark Rippetoe quotes that i found on some website, thought i'd post them on here:
"Poor form in the gym is caused by insufficient yelling".
"I can teach idiots to squat in ten minutes".
"There are many levels of understanding [of trainees] and you should be in command of most of them"..
"Natural athletes are visual learners".
"Mediocre athletes that tried like hell to get good are the best coaches".
People at the Division One and pro level rarely know what the hell they are doing, their athletes are pre-sorted".
"They are already strong or they would not be on the Dallas Cowboys" (On the relative lack of importance of proper training by pro football players,etc.).
"He does not know that Hammer Strength machines are pieces of ****" (On coaches lack of insight into the importance of genetics among pro athletes).
"The spine is best at bearing a load in an arch".
"The Olympic Snatch is gymnastics with a bar".
"Perfect is the enemy of good".
"Most of the problems with the bodies and minds of the folks occupying the current culture involve an unwillingness to do anything hard, or anything that they'd rather not do. I applaud your resolve, and I welcome you to the community of people who have decided that EASY will no longer suffice".
