None of that is in question.
Just like in all walks of life, cable guy could be an idiot.
I've had two back surgeries, so I tend to prefer to use cables so I don't have to pick weights up off the ground. I'm probably an idiot for using cable based movements and not doing squats though. When I used to race, I weighed about 145-150 at 5'10. I probably wouldn't have been able to bench over 135, but I could hit 1450W in a sprint which meant I'd be up near 40mph at the end of a race. I'll let you answer for which would have been more useful for me given discipline.
I'm not the one taking an aggressive stand here. I just said that people have different goals for working out and fitness in general. You're using a potentially extreme example to counteract a reasonable statement. Good job?
Unless cable guys form is going to injure him, he's wayyy better off doing what he is vs. sitting on his ass watching tv and pounding brewskis. When people like that show up to the gym, I try to chit chat if I'm in between sets and ask them why they're doing what they are and let them know proper form for stuff if they're interested in hearing about it. If they don't, then whatever.
Also, by your logic, good coaches should be ripped. I'm relatively sure that this is not the case for more sports.
PS: There's no such thing as 'unfunctional' muscle. I thought people got that a long time ago, but apparently not.
I don't understand your rage-y-ness...
And then we have this gem.
