No doubt, EC has done great stuff. His squat and deadlift technique articles from T-Nation 3 or so years ago are gold!

 

I was finding it odd that people had issue with Jim Wendler but not other big name trainers.

Oh yea that guy sucks! I saw an episode on TV about that dude. The 4 hour chef! lol

There are people out there who are a gold mine of information and deserve money and some people who don't.

Let's not forget that Jim Wendler and the EFS sponsered lifters answer questions for free on the EFS website.

I'm not drinking the Wendler kool aid as some of you would suggest, just pointing out that the guy is putting out worthwhile stuff.

I really like Wendler. Made some awesome progress on 5/3/1 and I have a friend who has been on 5/3/1 for 3 years plus and has nice lifts. He offeres a very simple template on how to get strong and it's also only an hour long workout

I wish this Aeron chair had slots to stick this knobbler in on the back rest. I would place like 2 on the thoracic spine and a few on my lower back, iw ould lean back into the knobbler all day and feel bliss.

I like him too, I just think his followers are a bunch of brown nosing spastics. Obviously his style of writing helps him convince them to pay money for basic concepts.

yea, i hear ya. I stole his book anyways

no one's debating the fact that wendler puts out worthwhile stuff; lifters just seem to forget he's not the second coming of jesus christ and whatever he writes is not the holy writ.

he's as much of a marketing genius as he is an accomplished lifter and coach. fuji said it best, his followers are usually dicktrees.

I paid for 5/3/1 and i'm glad i did. I've also paid for Starting Strength and Enter the Kettlebell.

I like supporting people who provide me with the training protocols to help me achieve my goals.

For some reason I have a hard time buying a PDF since it's so accessible. If it's in book form i snatch it up, like starting strength. I think it's because I reference books a lot more revisiting them

Same here. I was training at a powerlifting gym and my coach told me to buy it. Definitely worth it.

 

I might really start lifting heavy again. It's going to suck because I'm much weaker after 2-3 years away. Heck, all I could tweak out in squat the other day was 185 for 1 rep baldy[1].gif

It was available as a book via EFS 3 or so years ago. That's how I purchased it.

I like Jim, don't like his training method but do like his choice of exercises (he made me try the safety-squat bar which is always a blast to use). Whatever, I don't understand all this hate against this dude and it seems I'm not going deep enough in the Internet as I don't see this glorifying thing that you guys seems to hate. As long as these guys follow good teaching from Jim rather than some other bullshit from Youtube, im fine with it icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

only training books I've bought are Everetts olympic weightlifting and Dreschler's Weightlifting encyclopedia, of which Greg's book is 70% awesome and the latter a whole 100%.
