When I lived in San Diego, I met a few people like this. It's part of what made me change my mind about weightlifting in my early 20s. We can ignore our elders in these circumstances, or we learn from them. I don't just gather inspiration about things in life from people who do things right, I look at those who suffer from poor decision making and adjust. The more we learn from not just our own mistakes, but moreso from the mistakes others make, the faster we progess as a society.
It all starts with analysing things and adjusting. This is why I have a no tolerance for things that don't respect our evolutionary traits with regard to training. If you chase 2 rabbits, you get neither of them. I'm trying to run like usain, throw like chapman, slip like mayweather, swim like phelps, change directions like barry. If I can't do that, it's because I'm still using systems that don't adapt. I wasn't given the genetics to do these things with my body, so I have to institute the proper stimuli to do this into my 40s and 50s. I'm getting older and the margin for error for me accomplishing these things is miniscule. A tolerance for bullshit closes the door on me for good.
So if you hate the fact that I slag on crossfit, powerlifting, olympic lifting, yoga, pilates, etc., it's becausemy metrics for accomplishment are much higher than the average person and therapist. In order to do the impossible, you have to stop listening to people and start governing in accordance to sound logic and reasoning. With a body as subpar as mine, I need to make every decision a precise mathematical calculation. In everything I do. I want to extend these goals with others, which is why I am adamant about spreading the word on my unacceptable towards systems that don't have my goals in mind.
