Coach D and Coach Trent reflect on dogma in the fitness industry, and why some methods and styles of training become close-minded and insular over time. They explore the idea of using a model as the basis for a training program, and the shortcomings of complexity in the models. Ultimately, your fitness is bigger than your method, to paraphrase Coach D, and it's important to cultivate a skeptical mindset in which you search for good science, good principles, and then search for training methods built on those. It's ok to be dogmatic about principles, but keep an open mind when it comes to applying those principles in your day to day training program.
