I'm with Glenn - Really no different, other than that you may need to work around a bigger ego when convincing said dudes to use weights they can actually handle correctly. Really it's just a matter of making them understand that committing to technique work for a bit will in the long run get them much farther much faster.

Glenn and I actually talked about this yesterday - it's a hell of a lot tougher to train someone who has some poor experience with the lifts than none at all, and I think even tougher when that latter person has a ton of strength because they're more apt to believe they're a lot farther along in the game than they really are.
