Whine, Whine, Whine

I was going to say bitch, bitch, bitch but some folks don't like swearing. Andrew Read posted an article titled "Who Cares About Your Snatch" on the Breaking Muscle site this morning and, for trying to point out that people may not need to snatch, came in for all sorts of abuse. Mostly this abuse came from people who didn't understand the article and took it as a personal attack.
No where in the article did he say don't play sports or try to master them he merely pointed out that the real estate occupied by truly elite, olympic level athletes is very small. That you don't stand a chance at the highest level of athletic performance doesn't mean don't do it, it just means you don't stand a chance to compete at a world class level.
General Physical Preparation is just that. It is not preparation for high level athletics it is preparation for pick up games of basketball, the odd 5K run/walk, a hike or a bike ride.
You are not Elite, despite what it says on your t-shirt so get over it and quitchurbitchen'.
