C'mon, Brian. A good coach only needs a stopwatch and the ability to yell at people for around 45 minutes straight.

Man, I must be a terrible coach because I only use the stopwatch to time rests and my voice can't last yelling for 45minutes. I'm too gentle.

What? Train hard enough today to get better but not so hard that you can't train tomorrow? That's crazy talk. You'll never establish your own certification with that kind of attitude.

You guys are making me realize I'm such an underachiever. My sauce is too weak!

Seriously, this is one of the funniest things Glassman has ever said. I was watching that video and feeling bad for the people just nodding their head in approval. The poor people hear the phrase "Newtonian mechanics" and think he's onto something just because it sounds fancy.

Tell me, how do you apply Newtonian mechanics to human movement? Do Newtonian mechanics not apply to other athletic pursuits?

Everything I hear and read from Tony and Glassman is just so much fluff. It's like they looked for the most grandiose words and synonyms, and used them to make speeches and posts.

hahaha! when I saw those people nodding, my reaction was "OH NO, this is how North Korea started."
