USP - I Don't Know...It Depends

I don’t know…it depends…
I couldn’t believe it when I heard those words come out of his mouth…
Here I was listening to the guru the late Charlie Francis one of the worlds premier sprinting and speed coaches who produced a world record holder and the fastest man on earth at the 1988 Seoul Olympics..Ben Johnson-albeit drug assisted…

USP - Ben Johnson

A coach whom I hoped would answer all my questions I had related to speed training for athletes…As we sat down for the final discussion for the day…the questions poured in….
Charlie…what do you think about this?
Charlie what would you do with this athlete?

It seemed the answer to every question was the same., Charlie would say, “I don’t know or it depends…At first I thought he was dodging questions or being coy, but in essence he was doing the right thing…He simply didn’t know all of the variables at play…he didn’t have all the information he required to make the right decision…

Joey Hayes and Charlie Francis

Blanket statements without knowing all the variables, is one of the reasons I do not post training programs online, simply because I do not know all the variables at play: injuries, training history, fibre type, age etc. The magic one size fits all internet program guaranteed to put 10kgs on 10 days is a myth.

If you want a program that has the variables accounted for check out my Strongman Training Camp.

All the best,

Joey Hayes
