Justin, that's just part of the business model. People come to affiliates for direction. If people don't want direction, I recommend other gyms. If someone doesn't want to run, and would say, prefer to roll through 5-3-1 for awhile, I'd recommend the awesome PL/SM place nearby. It's cheaper and better suits their needs. If they have very specific goals, for a few I write specific programming. Sorry if my hyperbole "smacks of HQ".
I think we can agree that any thoughtful plan (maybe we won't agree that my programming is thoughtful?) is better than not running and expecting run times to improve?
