Weck Method and Uncle Weck on Instagram

Post by Kazuya Mishima » Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:44 pm

Who has the skinny on this shit? And, who is watching the drunk crazy uncle schtick on Instagram? I will give some credit where credit is due...I'm tuning in to see what crazy shit he's going to say next. I see such august fitness luminaries as Steve Cotter, Matt Furey, and Bud Jeffries flocking to his certifications, so that's interesting. Probably more voodoo, but I want to see these Weck Steps he keeps talking about. If there's anything that keeps the fitness industry interesting it's cryptic methods and personal drama...this shit is delivering both of those in spades.

There's been enough time for bosu and shit to pay dividends if it paid dividends. The pro coaches have been exposed to this stuff and passed. The folks who are into it are personal trainers trying to manage neophilac clients.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Well, this dude is ranting and raving about putting Nike out of business and REVOLUTIONIZING HUMAN LOCOMOTION. He's putting on like he's the Tesla of the fitness industry. I've seen it all before, but this crazy act is different.

I know David, although it's been a number of years since I've talked to him. He was always a bright guy with a huge hunger for knowledge and constantly trying out new inventions.

Regardless of anything else, his stuff is getting traction. I saw an article in Men's Fitness a few months ago of his ball/handle thing with some crazy looking rotation stuff. I dunno, I just get rather cynical about the whole industry. Do curls = get bigger arms. Do squats = get bigger legs. Do jumps = more athletic. All the extra stuff, besides some things cribbed from physical therapists to keep your joints healthy, just wears me out at this point.

In Steve's defense, he has been a friend of Weck for 20+ years. A lot of his Full KOntact KBs series was influenced by Weck.
