Mike Boyle, Bruce Lee and Strength Training

I love this quote from Mike Boyle:

As a coach, you can’t allow yourself to fall in love with any particular exercises, techniques, or philosophies. Your job is to get results, and to choose the methods that give you those results. That means experimenting with everything that makes sense to you, rejecting the things that don’t make sense or stop making sense, and keeping the ones that work.

Sometimes you reject popular exercises. Sometimes you stop using exercises that you once liked. And every now and then, you pull something out of the second category and reincorporate it into your programs.

Very well said, Coach Boyle!  Very much in line with the Bruce Lee philosophy of "Absorb what is useful, discard what is not.  Add what is uniquely your own."
